Yeah, I'm going to have to look into a cheap sewing machine (or use someone else's). The iron on stitching is terrible for the loop part of drawstring bags (it gets stiff).
The bags work well enough, but they don't really seal very well.

I know hand sewing is a pain (I try to avoid it as much as I can),
but it's not really that hard and will be more durable than the
iron-on stuff. Now that it's all put together, it will be even
easier to run a row of stitches up each seam by hand.
