How do you make a single pull drawstring bag?
Super easy – just make one drawstring! Thread the drawstring through and around the casing and tie off – and just don’t do the second drawstring! Some people refer to this style bag as a pull-tie bag – because that is what you do! Pull and tie the cording or ribbon!
