..and I'm still up crafting. :P My 7 month old daughter has my sleep schedule all weird right now and instead of laying in bed wide awake I thought my time might be better spent making something cute.
This isn't the greatest tutorial ever but you should be able to get the idea. ;)READ MORE...
- Rectangle of Halloween fabric. Size is up to you
- Rectangle of clear vinyl for window
- Ribbon or cord for drawstring
- Needle and thread or sewing machine
- Felt scraps and glue (optional)
Step 1: Fold the long ends of your fabric in 1/4" and press flat.
Step 2: Fold the short ends of your fabric in 1 inch, press flat and stitch closed along the bottom edge. This will be the casing for the drawstring.
Step 3: Measure down 4" from one end of your rectangle and cut. Fold down raw edges 1/4" and press flat.
Step 4: Pin the small piece of fabric to the top of the vinyl rectangle and the large peice of fabric to the bottom of the vinyl rectange. Stitch vinyl to the wrong side of the fabric.
Step 5: Fold the fabric in half right sides together and stitch up the sides. Make sure you only stitch up to the bottom seam of the drawstring casing.
Step 6: Turn the pouch right side out. Thread the ribbon or cord through the casing and tie the ends together in a knot.
The pouch is ready to go just as it is, but if you'd like to add a little something extra here's where the felt scraps and glue come in.
Cut out little Halloween shapes (pumpkins, ghosts, bats, etc.) and glue them onto the vinyl window.
Have fun! :D
