Painted Marble Bag





Because no one wants to lose their marbles....


MATERIALS

  • 1/4 yard of cotton fabric
  • Sewing thread
  • Yarn
  • Embroidery floss
  • Embroidery thread


STEP ONE
Paint your fabric with acrylic paints. Allow paint to dry. Wash and dry fabric. This is the same process as our painted silk, take a peak of our tutorial for greater details.

STEP TWO
Cut a 5" x 16" rectangle.

STEP THREE
Fold down 1/2" from top. Sew a seam at the bottom of the fold. Repeat the same process only on the bottom part of the rectangle.

STEP FOUR
Fold in half with RIGHT sides together. Stitch a seam on the left and right edges. Sewing only up to the bottom of your front and back top seams  

STEP FIVE
Turn right sides out. Thread a piece of yarn through the openings in the top seams of the front and back of your bag so that they form a circle when tied together.  This is what closes the bag with a simple tie; similar to draw string pants.

STEP SIX
To personalize, embroider your child's name, initials, or an object if desired. We embroidered a leaf.  



ENJOY!
