Felt Santa Sack Tutorial

I have been in my sewing room today trying to find inspiration for christmas gifts.
I was ramaging through my box of felt and came up with an idea for a santa sack. 
So while I was sewing it up I took photos so I could give you the following tutorial.

Decide on the size of the bag which you would like to make by folding your felt in half. Make sure the length is long enough for you to turn the top over.

Sewing with right sides together
Fold the felt making sure the seam is in the middle.. this is the back of the bag

Sew across the bottom of the bag

Fold the bottom corner of the bag as pictured.. this is the inside seam at the bottom. Do this to both corners

As picture... the corners are sewn up

\
This is what the bottom of the sack looks like when folded out right.

Sew some braid around the inside of the sack. So when it is turned over it shows on the right side.
I used some Tilda Christmas Fabric to make the yoyo.. Tilda heart and Tilda braid for the cuff of the sack

Your sack is finished

I hope you make some of these .. they are QUICK AND EASY... thats my motto!..

Add some stitichery to the front.. I promise these are coming.
 I have drawn up some cute gingerbread houses.

Also

I have started a BOM I purchased last year from The Fat Quarter Shop
Block ONE completed! LOL  finally


Hugs to all
