WHAT YOU'LL NEED (per bag)
- 30cm of 112cm wide Glitter Print Poplin
- 30cm of 112cm wide Glitter Print Poplin &ndash
Step 1 - From template* provided:
Cut 2x ears from both of the Glitter Print Poplin fabrics. Cut 2x ears from fusible Pallon. Fuse wadding pieces to the back of two of the fabric ears.
Step 2 - With right sides facing, pin and sew ears together leaving the base of the ear open. Trim wadding back to the seam stitching. Trim and clip corners and turn ears right way out. Press ears flat. Top stitch around outer edges of the ears.
Step 1 - Cut 2x pieces of fabric each measuring 30cm high by 24cm wide from one Glitter Print Poplin fabric which will be used for the outer bag.
Step 2 - With right sides facing, pin fabric together at sides and along the base. Sew down 4cm on one of the side edges. Leave a 1cm gap in the stitching, then continue sewing fabric together down the side and along the base. Repeat sewing along the other side edge the same as before, sewing down 4cm, leaving a 1cm gap, then complete sewing the side edge to the base.
Clip the base corners and turn right way out, press flat. Top stitch the seam allowance down along the 1cm gap in side seams to make it easier later when threading through the ribbon.
Step 3 - To make the lining of the bag, cut 2x pieces of fabric each measuring 30cm high by 24cm wide from the other Glitter Print Poplin fabric.
With right sides facing, pin fabric together at side and along the base. Sew pieces together along the side edges and the base leaving a 7cm gap in the base seam. Clip the base corners and turn right way out, press flat.
Step 4 - Aligning the raw edge of ears' ends with the top raw edge of one of the top edge of the lining, pin ears 5cm in from each of the side edges of the lining. Sew ears to lining 5mm in from the top edge, ensuring that ears are only sewn to one side of the lining. Turn lining back wrong way out.
Step 5 - With right sides facing, place the outer bag inside the lining, matching side seams and top raw edges. (ears should be between layers pointing down). Sew together. Turn the lining out, top stitch the opening in the base seam of the lining closed. Place the lining inside the outer bag, pressing flat along the side and top edges, with the ears pointing up. Top stitch around the outer top edges of bag.
Step 6 - To make the casing for the ribbon, measure down 2.5cm from the top edge, and stitch around bag. Measure down another 1.5cm and sew another row of stitching around the bag.
Cut ribbon into 2x 40cm lengths. With help from a safety pin, thread one ribbon length through one of the side openings in the seam, around the bag and back out through the same opening. Knot ends of ribbon together and cut to neaten if required. Repeat with the other ribbon length, threading through the other side opening in the side of the bag.
