Add edging if desired. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Drawstring

CH 100-120 (to desired length), then 1 more CH. SC in 2nd CH from hook, and in every CH to end, working on the bump in the back of the CH. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Finishing

Run the drawstring through the eyelets. Run the drawstring through 2 eyelets from the inside first, making sure the ends are even. Then, alternating sides, run through the remaining eyelets. The 2 ends should come out the last pair of eyelets on the front. Knot the ends together.

Alternative Drawstring: Chain 100-120 (to desired length). Fasten off and weave in ends. Insert through eyelets. Use a drawstring clasp instead of knotting ends.

If you're feeling adventurous, run the chain through the clasp, then the eyelets, and back through the clasp, then join the ends of the chain with a slip stitch, and slip stitch in the next 2 stitches for strength. Then fasten off and weave in.
