Tunisian Drawstring Bag

Image of Tunisian Drawstring Bag Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

This drawstring bag is just the right size to hold small items like a pouch of tissues, lipstick, credit cards and a few other small essentials you may want to have with you when you go out and you do not want to carry a big bulky purse. It is also just the right size to hold a deck of cards and a note pad which you can use away from home if you are into playing cards for fun.
