Make Shoe Bags !

Make Shoe Bags + Tutorial !
I've been planning to make these for a few years now, but as I always say "you cannot rush these things". "Better late then never" is another saying.
Well today I finally made one for my summer going out shoes. They are great to use when travelling,they are so much nicer then putting your shoes in plastic bags so they don't touch your nice clean clothes. This one is made from cotton material, they are so easy to make, they would also make lovely gifts for all your girl friends.I'm going to make a few more of them. All you need is a piece of fabric, some matching cotton and a strap to thread through the casing at the top, you could buy a piece of cord or you could use a strip of the same fabric and fold over and make a strap to the desired length. The piece of material I used was width 25 cm and length 75cm. I made a casing at each narrow end, sewed up the sides just before the casing top then I threaded 2 straps through each end tied in a knot. That's it, how simple is that!
I just did a tutorial to add
STEP 1 & 2
I over lock the length of material both sides,then I sew a casing 1inch or 2.5 cm at each end .

Then I sew up each side inside out. I start at each bottom end and line up the top .

This is what it should look like, after sewing up each side then turning the bag in the right way.

You can use either cord purchased for the draw or you can made a strap from matching fabric like I have you will need it to be 2 straps measuring 25 inches or 63.5 cm.
Cut fabric 1 &1/2 inches wide to sew for strap by folding both ends in and sewing, like bias binding.
                                                        STEP 6. 
                                                        Thread the straps through the casing so one straps goes in the same end and comes out the same end then tie in a knot. then thread the other strap the other way and tie in a knot.
    STEP 7.
                                                      Completed bag,  pull both straps at the same time to close bag.
