Activity Bags

After a church meeting last week my friend told me about this blog Chasing Cheerios and the activity bags she made. I thought they were super cute and a good idea for all the times we're at the doctor's office, meetings, car rides, etc. and I need something for her to entertain herself with.

I looked around for the zipper bags but then I saw my friend use these. So with my new sewing machine I decided to give it a try.

Here's how they turned out:

First I went and purchased 4 placemats from the Dollar Store.

Next I folder them and sewed up the edges.

I left room at the top and folded it over and sealed it down with velcro.

Then I used handy dandy Heat 'n' bond with the Impervious font and some really cheap fabric from Walmart to add one, two, three, and four unto the fronts of the bags.

Now they're filled with crayons and coloring books, stringing activities, puzzles,etc. They sit in the basket near our garage door ready and waiting to be picked up and taken with us wherever!
