Easter Gift Bags

Sew tiny Easter bags for gifts

Make these lovely gift bags and fill them with Easter treats for family and friends. If you are a beginner to sewing this is a perfect start. Work with felt, buttons, simple hand stitching and machine stitching to create a beautiful handmade gift bag. Denise's grandson loved making these bags - why not make some with your kids?

You will need...

Supplies for Easter bags

For each bag:

One piece of felt for the bag 30cm x 15cm

Scraps of felt for the flowers

Two buttons

Needle and thread

Pattern for the Easter Bag

You will also need scissors, pinking shears and a sewing machine.

 

 Instructions
 

Easter bag cut out ready to sew

Using the pattern cut out the bag marking the flower positions and the side seams.


Add flowers to Easter Bag

Position the flower heads in place and stitch each button through the flower and the bag.

 

Stitch side seams

Fold the bag in half, wrong sides together and machine stitch the two seams either side of the bag.


Pinking the edges

Use a pair of pinking shears to pink the edges.

 

Mark base for inner seam

 Turn the bag inside out and mark the base on either side of the bag for stitching.


Make bag base

Machine stitch and trim the two corners and turn right side out. Stitching the corners enables the bag to stand upright when filled with treats.
