Recently I made these cute little bags for the grandchildren of several friends. They are great for church, doctor's office, or long car rides.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial if you'd like to try one.
You will need these supplies:
two 8" squares of fleece fabric
one 4" square of heavy, clear plastic
small toys or objects to fill the bags (30-40 items)
(I like to include beads that spell out the child's name.)
one 10" strip of grosgrain ribbon
one sheet of inkjet printer fabric (can be purchased at Jo-anns
Step 7: Next, you will need to type up a list of all the items in your bag and print it out on fabric paper. I buy june tailor inkjet paper at Jo-anns and follow the printing and preparation instructions on the package. Pin and sew your list onto the other square of fleece.
Step 9: Sew around the square, leaving at least a 2" or a little larger opening on one side . Sew diagonally across the corner with the grosgrain ribbon. Trim seams, clip corners and turn right side out.
Step 12: After the pellets and toys have been added, machine stitch the opening closed. Be sure and double stitch for reinforcement. You now have a finished "eye spy" bag which can be enjoyed for many years!
