- Felt (two pieces 9″x11″, two pieces 9″x7″, one piece 2″x12″)
- Scrap Felt for applique circles
- Pins, Thread, Sewing Machine
Step 2: With right sides in, sew three sides of the large felt pieces (now with circles appliqued on). Repeat with smaller felt rectangles.
Step 3: When done with step 2, you should have two rough “bag shapes” as pictured below. One will be smaller than the other.
Step 4: With the larger “bag” inside out, place the smaller “bag” right side out inside of the larger “bag”. Match up the side seams and pin in place. Then, sew around the top, leaving a 3″ gap so that the bag can be turned right-side out.
Step 5: Once the bag is turned, hand-stitch shut the gap you left so the bag could be flipped (don’t worry, this doesn’t have to be perfect. It will be hidden).
Step 6: Once the entire top is sewn, push the lining down into the bag, this will pull the top part of the outside bag down.
Step 7: Create the strap. Take the 2″x 12″ piece of felt you cut. Fold in half and fold in each end. Pin, and sew along the edge.
Step 8: And finally, hand-stitch the strap in place.
