|When I had trouble locating a suitable drawstring for a pair of pants I made for my daughter, I turned to the shoelace rack at the grocery store. I bought long oval athletic shoelaces, which come in an array of colors. Snip the little plastic ends off, and pull the "stuffing" out, and you wind up with two laces: the colored cover, and a soft white knit cord concealed inside. The navy cord was perfect for DD's pants, and the liner cord will be useful for travel shoe bags I'm making for gifts. The last time I was in a large athletic shoe store, I noticed these laces in lots of different colors; I'm going to stock up!
