It has to be kawaii! Keepcup drawstring bag

The last Facebook market was so much fun. Thank you to everyone who came to browse and purchase. It’s always wonderful to connect with my regular customers, and make new(ish) things with them in mind.

One of my favorite creations for the market were these reusable shopping bag sets. Another favourite is the wristlet wet bag pouch, which I made specifically for a keepcup (reusable coffee cup) with a few utensils. I was also pleasantly surprised that my reusable sandwich wraps were popular, even with grownup fabrics.

After the market ended, I just wanted to keep making more stuff. So I made something for myself: A keepcup pouch!keepcup drawstring bag by piggledeeSquirrels in blue. So, so kawaii! (can you hear me squeal like a school girl?) I did ask myself: is it a tiny bit age-inappropriate for me to use this kiddy fabric for myself, being a 40-something grown woman and all? And the answer is, of course not! Okay, I might hesitate wearing this fabric as a garment. But for a pouch that would live quietly inside my backpack or handbag, the fabric absolutely has to be kawaii. Otherwise, where’s the joy?

This drawstring bag is just the right size for an 8-oz keepcup. I can also squeeze in a small reusable handkerchief and a child-sized fork and spoon. I’m pretty pleased how it came out. (Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with or compensated by the keepcup company. I just think they make great sustainable products.)

I also lined the bag with water-resistant nylon fabric, which I happened to have in this blue that matches the Squirrel fabric perfectly.

Plus I also happened to have this pretty blue cord that I once ordered by mistake – and now put to a good use.

Maybe I’ll make more of these cuties for my next market.  I can’t wait!
