These were requested by my kids for their miscellaneous lego guys, mini star wars dudes and small action figures, so that they could have them in their bed, but not loose them down the crack at the side of the mattress.
I said ok. let me think on it for a minute… Hawley then counted to 60. cheeky little munchkin. At first I thought I would just make a little tote and pin it to the wall, but then I thought it would be more fun to reach a little hand inside and see what was hiding.
The boys both wanted star wars, but one wanted avengers and the other superman. yes, I keep these in my stash.
fabric: 2 interior and 2 exterior : 10″ x 9 1/4″
seam allowance is at 1/4″
the pictures, though useful do not explain well, so I will write it out..
1. put your front piece and your lining piece right sides together
2. use your highly specialized ruler (snort) to trace a circle. obviously I picked a container that was big enough for little hands…
3. stitch this circle
4. cut the circle out, and notch the circle so it lays flat when you flip it. careful- don’t clip your seams…
5.you need to flip the fabrics to their right sides.
6.top stitch the circle
8-10. this is when the explanations get fun…You are going to sew the two remaining pieces, one to each panel with right sides together. If you want obi wan looking at you, take a minute to think about placement. also, you need to leave an opening for turning this whole fiasco right side out…we are trying to sew this so that all of your seaming is on the inside of the lining, and will not be seen.
11. turn right side out
12. press make sure to press your turning whole under so that the exposed edge is hidden inside the whole bag.
14. in the top corners, either put grommets, or reinforce a small circle (square, diamond, what have you, you can use the buttonholing option, but I was lazy and didn’t want to change my feet up.) then clip for putting push pins through. you could use cup hooks also.
13. hang up and fill…
