This project can be as simple or as advanced as you want to make it. I included sewing and embroidery in my version but all of this could easily be done with fabric glue to make a simple no-sew project that kids can even enjoy.
Here's what you'll need:
- Fall embellishment template (see below)
- Felt in various fall colors
- A big sharp needle that will fit the yarn
- A ruler
- A pencil
- A sewing machine or fabric glue
- Embroidery floss or other embellishments- optional
Step 1: Print the template out on a heavy card stock and cut out the pieces that you plan to use. Then cut the corresponding pieces out of the felt. I just hold the piece to the felt when I use heavy card stock.
Step 2: Cut a rectangle from the piece of felt that is 5"x11.5'- this will be your bag.
Step 3: Fold the rectangle in half and figure out the placement of your embellishments. Then embroider or glue on the felt pieces. I used the blanket stitch to attach my pieces.
Step 4: Sew or glue up the sides of the bag with right sides together. Then turn the bag right side out.
Step 5: Measure down an inch and run the yarn around the top of the bag leaving plenty of length tie once you draw the bag closed.
Step 7: Fill with treats and share with a friend!
I think these would be really cute for kids to make for their friends, especially if a parent pre-sews all of the bags and lets the kids glue on the embellishments.
