Supplies for Christmas goodie bags.


  1. I had an old goodie bag which I used for a pattern and used it to cut out from red or green felt, a front and back.
  2. A piece of felt cut from a pattern.
  3. Next I cut a small square to go on the back side, which is the little flap for the long johns. I used a zig zag stitch, using contrasting thread, to sew this to the center of the lower back.
  4. Adding a pocket to the felt.
    Adding a pocket to the felt.
  5. Cut a 1 inch slit in the front at the top, centering it between the shoulders. Then, glue the front neck down on both sides to form a collar and let dry.
  6. Combining the red and green felt pieces.
    Sewing the red felt.

  7. Pin the front to back "wrong" sides together. Zig zag around the whole edge, about 1/4 inch seam. Trim the back portion of the neck even with the front.
  8. Sewing a seam on the red felt.
  9. Using a good tacky glue or hot glue gun, glue three pom poms down the front and two buttons on the back flap. Can glue a ribbon to front side if desired.
  10. Adding pom poms to the front of the bag.
    Adding buttons to the pocket.
  11. Fill with goodies!
