Day 3 of the Egg-ceptional Egg-xtravaganza
March 25, 2009
Welcome to day 3 of our Egg-ceptional Egg-xtravaganza. Mel and I are sharing some Easter bags and pouches ideas today. Our little bags and pouches are perfect for filling with Easter goodness and sharing with friends.
Mel has made some very cute little bags, you can find her post HERE.
I have made some Easter pouches. Last year I made little felt Easter egg bags which were super easy. This year I've changed these a little to make pouches from bubble corduroy and ribbons. These require a little more sewing than the felt bags, but they are still very quick and easy to make.
Easter project: Bubble corduroy Easter egg pouches.
Here's some step by steps to making my Easter pouches.
Step one: Cut fabric pieces 12cm x 28cm. Turn top and bottom hem over and sew.
Step 2:Create little ribbon tabs for threading ribbon in a later step. I cut grosgrain ribbon approximate 5cm long and sewed them onto the fabric approximately 2-3cm from the hemmed edges.
Here's a close up of the ribbon tabs:
Step 3: Sew a piece of ribbon across the fabric. I've used some cute bunny ribbon from Ribbons Galore.
Below is a photo of what the pieces of fabric will look like at this stage:
Step 4: Fold fabric right sides together and sew side seams.
Step 5: Turn the little pouches right side out. I often talk before about production line crafting when making several pieces of the same project. This certainly can be applied to this project. Take one step at a time, cut all your fabric and pieces of ribbon. Then have your little pile of fabric at the sewing machine and stitch each step at a time. You'll soon have a little stack of bags.
Step 6: Thread ribbon through the tabs. Fill you little Easter pouches with goodies and you're ready for giving.
Thanks for joining Mel and I again today. We hope you'll visit us again on Friday for our next egg-ceptional egg-xtravaganza posts.
Have a great day.
