    Wouldn’t it be nicer looking if you sewed the fabric sides up into a tube then made the hem for the drawstring?

    the way you have it the fabric will ravel and be a mess.

    great idea though, I’m going to make some for crayons and markers

    I’m going to put a few holes in the bottom of the bottle and a mesh fabric for the top for collecting shells at the beach 🐚 and my 6 year old granddaughter loves collecting rocks for her rock polisher. Love this idea all the way around!

      I’m going to Lake Huron in a month and collect rocks. I need to have one made by then. Love it!
