PERICOACH_Editorial_Drivers_In_Article_Banner_712x150


Material

  • 2 pieces of coloured fabric
  • 1 set transferable iron on letters
  • 1 strip of patterned fabric (I used owls)
  • 1 needle and thread / sewing machine
  • 1 scissors
  • 1 iron
  • 2 Draw strings

Method

  1. First cut out a rectangle of fabric (when folded in half this will need to be the size you would like your bag to be.
  2. Lay out the fabric good side up and stitch/ glue on your band of patterned / designed cloth decoration along the bottom of the longer edge.
  3. Before you stitch up into a bag stitch in your draw strings along to the other long edge. TIP : Make sure you tie loops or knots at the end of the draw strings so they don't get pulled out!
  4. Now fold your rectangle in half to form a square (I fold it so the patterned fabric is facing in so i can turn it the right way round once stitched)
  5. stitch along the bottom edge (by the patterned strip) and up the side edge to just below the draw string.
  6. Turn the right way round
  7. Iron on your kids names where you want them on the bag and your done!

  • These are beautiful. My sister just bought personalised library bags for my children for Christmas but I will keep these in mind for when they need new ones.

  • Thanks for posting this easy project – perfect timing with school starting soon. My daughter is keen to help me make a book bag for her during the school holidays so we will kill two birds with one stone: holiday boredom and getting organised for school. Cheers!
