Women’s Drawstring Bags: Shopping Guide & FAQ

Article cover image

Stylish, elegant, and fashionably refreshing, the women's drawstring bag dates back to the 13th century but became popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. By the twentieth century, small beaded drawstring bags were all the rage—a smash in the dance halls of the roaring twenties. Recent models of the women's drawstring bag are a throwback to those beaded beauties.

Drawstring bags for women: Everything You Should Know About

A drawstring bag is the perfect piece for a night out and it looks just as chic in a daytime setting combined with casual jeans and a t-shirt.

Why are women's drawstring bags popular?

It's a natural progression from the ultra-minimal handbags of recent seasons (avoiding heavy hardware while giving your valuables a little extra protection). Women's drawstring bags are also remarkably versatile: nylon and leather models look elegant and sporty, while satin and velvet versions are reminiscent of vintage evening handbags.

How do you wear women's drawstring bags?

The perfect size for just the necessities, the women's drawstring bag is a no-fuss lesson in concentrating on the basics. You can hold the bag in your hands as if it were a purse, or just casually let it swing from the drawstring to the tips of your fingers. Simple, feminine, delicate.

How do you make women's drawstring bags?

Pick Your Material: This is an important decision since the material will determine how long the bag lasts and how difficult it will be to sew.
Pick Your Drawstring Material: A  chain, ribbon, paracord, leather, or heavy twine all work. 
Cut the fabric to your prefered size: Once you have selected the size you want for your drawstring bag, measure and cut the fabric into two rectangular shapes. cut at least half an inch to an inch wider than you would like your bag.

Form and Stitch the Hem for the Drawstring: Turn the fabric so that the back is facing out. fold one to two centimeters of fabric down to the top to create a channel. Do this on both sides, pin it and stitch it carefully around the edge of the hem.
Line the Fabric up and Sew: Lay your fabric back to back with the backside facing out and match your hems. Sew along the sides and the bottom, making sure your hemmed end is open. When all three sides are stitched, turn the bag out so the front of the fabric is on the outside.
Change as needed and add the drawstring: Make sure your sides are even before you add the drawstring. The drawstring needs to be two times longer than the opening of your pocket. Thread your first piece of drawstring through a darning needle, and thread it through the channel that you created in Step 4. Do this on both sides, leaving a loop to tie on both ends. Knot them together at the ends on either side of your bag to finish the project.

Summary

The women's drawstring bag has come a long way from the polyester backpacks that you used to lug around to gym class. The simple closure has become trendy in street fashion, turning up on everything from embroidered sachets to robust leather bags.
