I often sew little bags like the one above in the picture, and I figured it might be fun to show you guys how I mostly make them. So here you go!
The things you will need: Some cute fabric, needle and thread, scissors, paper, a ruler, a pencil.
First you have to decide how big you want your little bag to be. I decided to make it 14 by 8 centimeters. Then make a pattern and cut it out. I also wanted a little heart in the front, but you can choose anything for this, for example a flower.
Cut your pattern out two times; you need two sides to make a bag.
First go ahead and sew on the heart on the front.
I end my stitching by going in and out and leaving a loop, then I go through the loop and pull it tight. I repeat this two or three times at the same spot. Then I cut the Thread of, but not too short because otherwise it will come loose.
Now put the two sides together the ‘wrong’ way around and sew one of the long sides together.
Now sew two cm down the two sides from the top like I did in the pictures.
Now fold it double, you create the loop for the ribbon like this.
Sew it together.
Now fold the whole thing double again and stick it all up.
Turn your bag inside out.
Take a cute ribbon and a big needle, put the ribbon through the space you’ve created for it.
Tadaaaa! To finish it off, put to big beads at the ends of the ribbon and make a tight knot. It’s very cute to give a little handmade bag like this to one of your friends, a family member or a little kid. Have fun and feel free to ask me any question if I was unclear!
Good luck and love always,
