Heart Bag Template
Felt (red and white)
36″ 3mm macrame cotton cord (size may vary depending size of child)
Embroidery floss in coordinating colors
Thread in coordinating colors
Seam allowance: 1/2″
1. Cut out your bag pieces: 2 pieces for bag body, 4 pieces for XOXO. Place your XOXO pieces on the front bag piece and hand-sew on with a running stitch.
2. Place the two bag pieces together (with the XOXO facing out), and sew around bottom two-thirds of the heart (see template for where to start and end), leaving the top third open.
3. Sew on your strap with a little zig-zag stitch, make sure to leave 1.5″ of the ends dangling. With your needle, fray the end of the cotton cord for a little fringe.
Stuff the bag with a heart headband and some chocolates… instant (well, after you make it) love day gifts. Two days left until Valentine’s and I think you still have just enough time to make this bag!
