Basic Skills Necessary:

  • pin, cut, sew straight on sewing machine

Pattern Description:

This bag is fully lined. It has a flat bottom so the bag sits nicely. The top can be folded down to sit open.

For beginners of any age, I've created these sewing instructions with 3 pages of easy to follow step by step instructions with diagrams & photographs; includes pattern piece to print and pin onto fabric to cut. This is a simple design to get you started!

Let your creativity take it from here! You can make changes to size (height and/or width) to fit different things, like for use as a gift bag for a wine bottle. Think: gift giving bags, storage bags, snack bags, party favors. They could be lined with Insul-Brite to keep things cold or hot. They could be decorated with stick-on or sew on appliques or buttons, fancy stitching, lace, etc. Use your imagination!

I've taught beginning sewing for five years to ages 8 and up to adults. I saw the need for clear instructions with good diagrams/photos for beginners. You beginners can make this small bag, with these easy step my step instructions.

This is a pdf file. You can print it out on 8.5x11 inch paper. BE SURE to set print to "actual size" not "fit", or your pattern will not be the correct size. BE SURE you have Adobe Acrobat Reader (which you can download for free http://www.adobe-reader.org/).
