Easy Kids Craft: Sew a Gift Bag
Gather all the materials needed:
- 2 pcs. crafting felt (pink and red)
- yarn of any color
- crochet thread
- a big sewing needle
- a pair of scissors
- wooden skewer or any thin stick (optional)
Step 1: Cut a piece of rectangle from the pink crafting felt. The dimensions should be at least 30-centimeter in length and 10-centimeter in width. The dimensions are flexible since you can cut this based on your needed size. This will be the body of the pouch.
Step 2: Cut a medium-sized heart from the red crafting felt.
Step 3: Place the heart in the middle part of the pink body. This should be placed on the one-third portion from the top of the body. Sew this heart using a running stitch near the side of it.
Step 4: Fold the top and the bottom ends of the pink body towards the back portion of it. The back portion is the portion where the red heart is not visible. The folds would be at least 1 to 1.5-centimeter in width. Sew this using a running stitch.
Step 5: Fold the pink body into two equal parts and sew the sides of it using running stitch. Leave the topmost part open. Do not stitch the folded parts on top.
Step 6: Insert the yarn on the pipe opening on the topmost part of the pouch.
Step 8: Cut the end of the yarn once you decided how long you want your yarn is.
Step 9: Create a loop at the ends of both yarn on the left and right.
Step 10: You can now place your precious gift to this lovely heart pouch.
This adorable heart pouch can be made by simple non-crafters since this only involves the simple running stitch. You can also use this pouch for other purposes, such as watch, bracelet or earrings pouch whenever you travel. Practice your creativity and who knows? Maybe you have the eye and the artistic hand for it! Have fun and spread the love!
