Welcome to the Shoe Boxes for Boys series. This year I am focusing on packing boxes for boys after reading a comment on this post about the need for more boxes for boys (especially 10-14 year olds). If you are packing Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes this year, I hope you will discover new ideas and also share your ideas!
These little drawstring bags are great for packing school supplies, small toys or tools in a shoe box. I added an extra touch by sewing a felt applique onto the bag.
fat quarter (makes 2 bags)
ribbon or cord
Cut a piece of fabric 6 1/2" x 21". Draw or print a template for the applique and cut the shapes out of the felt. Fold the piece of fabric wrong sides together and with short sides together. Position applique in center of fabric and move it down about an inch. Pin the applique to the first layer of fabric only.
