I’m finally getting around to posting about the toy bags that I made right before the move.
I can’t remember which blog I saw them on originally, but the Peek-A-Boo Toy Sack Tutorial is by Make It Perfect.
I had been wanting to make some toy sacks for a while. I’d seen a tutorial for making bags with an iron-on picture… so if it was a bag of trains, you’d take a picture of the trains, print it out on special paper, Iron it onto your fabric and make a bag. Then, what if Little Bit changed his mind about the trains and only played with Legos. I’m stuck with a bag with a picture of a train. I really like the Peek-a-Boo sacks better because you can switch out toys infinitely and you can see what’s inside before dumping the bag out!
I confess I did buy fabric for this, even though I had plenty on hand that I could have used. I had been looking at some 30’s and 40’s reproduction print fabrics, but didn’t have a reason to buy any. So when this toy sack idea popped up they immediately came to mind. The fabric didn’t stay sitting around, that’s for sure. I didn’t have much time, so I only got to make two of them. I did use some white linen from the stash for the lining and I used some bias tape that was left over from a former quilt project…. so some stash and some new.
