Drawstring Back Pack Making

I spent most of the day yesterday making these cute drawstring backpacks. I finally decided on making these for the kids for Christmas (nieces, nephews and a few friends kids that are like family). I am going to get a couple things to put inside the bags and then they will have a couple presents in one!

The hardest part is picking out and matching fabrics. I have a huge huge stash of fabric now so it just takes a bit of time to go through and match things up.

I had a huge stash of bias tape I had picked up at the thrift stores and such so I've been using that to start with for the strings. 

The insides are lined.

So far I've only made a couple small changes to the pattern. It had the strings going through the lining on the bottom section but I could not figure out how to make that happen easily so I just have it going through the outside fabric. I have also started making the top seam a bit bigger so I have more room to get the drawstrings through. Super easy and pretty well explained pattern! I think I cut out fabric for 11 of them so I only have 6 to go!

I love this idea, but the pattern instructions lost me right away. What in the world does this mean? "Keeping right sides together, arrange the tube so that those 2 seams you just made are lined up in the centre."
