How to make a draw-string bag

While we have no affiliation with the person who made this video, it's perfect for our context. It took our tester 20 minutes to sew a bag using this How to Make a Drawstring bag video. The only change we suggest is beginning with a piece of fabric that measures 14" x 32" in order to end up with a finished product of 12" x 15".
