Picture of How to make a patchwork drawstring bag/hat

I started making these little bags as a way to use up those scraps that are too small to really do anything with but too large to justify throwing out.  The bag is completely reversible and it can double as a sun hat in a pinch!

Step 1: Gather materials

thanks for the tutorial :) just whipped one up in less than an hour. found the bottom a bit tricky but i was able to finagle with little effort.
Oh awesome! You should post a picture!
The part where all the seams meet at the bottom can be annoying to sew, but not impossible. Let me know if there are things in the instructions I could change to make it easier!
