Toy Bag Party Favors

My kids' both have birthdays in September and possibly for the last time, we're going to have one big party for both. In typical fashion, I think, why not make some toy bags as party favors....18 of them.....

At the time, it didn't seem like a lot, and I was on a roll until about bag 9. Then, I was done, the novelty wore off. But, I powered through and finished them up with a few weeks to spare.

If you are wacky like me and think this might be a fun thing to do, here are a few tips to make it a little easier.

  • As nice as the mitered corners are in my original tute, rounding the corners goes much quicker.

  • use a zig-zag stitch to secure the bias tape. I found that often times I'd have to go back over parts where all the layers didn't get enclosed.

  • I made these bags bigger than the original and also used spray adhesive to hold the velcro in place before sewing.

Hope the kids enjoy them!

Check back next week for a new tutorial for a fun and relatively easy kid's birthday present. Have a great long weekend!

  2. I was planning on making some favor bags for my daughters birthday party, I am going to use your idea but instead of vinyl I think I will use the mesh that you can put through the washing machine to keep your socks together.
