Hi! I am Kami from Sweet Charli sharing a little project with you, that you may want to make for your kiddos for back-to-school. I was given the letter ‘V’ and decided to make VELCRO bags for some of your kids’ school items!

I love shopping at The Ribbon Retreat, because the selection of darling ribbons, embellishments, trims, and fabric is awesome. I found this cute fabric and all the embellishments there for a great deal. And of course, this is where I got my VELCRO!

To make this VELCRO pencil bag you will need:
4×8″ fabric
4×10″ fabric
4×10″ felt*
sticky velcro
sewing machine/thread
embellishments
*I use felt on the inside of my bag so that it has stability while carrying the pencils.

Sew a rough piece of velcro on the top-middle of your 4×8″ fabric.

Next, on the 4×8″ fabric piece, fold over the top two times then stitch a straight line across to hold and finish it.

Then you will place your 4×10″ pieces of felt and fabric together (wrong sides together) and use a non-fray stitch around the top half (you can around the whole thing but it isn’t necessary).
Now you will place the two pieces together, right sides touching. Line up from the bottom, because you will want the longer piece to be on top for the flap.
Sew around the two sides and the bottom.

Flip right side out. Add the soft piece of velcro on the flap of your bag.

Now is the fun part, embellishing! I found so many cute things at The Ribbon Retreat to embellish with! Ric-rac, flowers, bows, washi-tape, ribbons…it was hard to decide what to use!

I kept on going and wanted to make a sandwich bag for lunch. I used oil cloth for the outside, and fabric for the inside.

One of my favorite things about this project are the labels. I got some fun washi-tape from The Ribbon Retreat and decided that these labels can be removed and replaced with whatever I want to say! How easy and fun is that?

I hope you enjoy this project. These VELCRO bags really are so easy to make and you can put anything in them! They would make fun bags to give gifts in too!

Happy “V” Day!


How so very cute are those bags? Pretty super cute right? My boys would love little bags just like those…maybe minus the sequin bows and flowers, but they would be thrilled with their own personal bag to place their brand new pencils in and yummy, yummy PB&Js in for their tasty lunches!
