bear felt bag for kids

The Bear Necessities

This little bear felt bag is a fantastic size for your kids to store all of their goodies. The purse measures at 6 inches by 5.5 inches, but you could always resize the template if you prefer a larger or smaller bag.

This project requires a simple blanket stitch for all his little facial details. You can use a sewing machine for this bear felt bag, of course, but you can also use this as an opportunity to introduce yourself or your kids to some of the fundamentals of sewing. And you will love the result!

Skill level: Beginner-friendly

Crafting tips: Make sure the strap you use for this purse is sturdy enough for whatever trinkets you’ll put into the felt bag. I also love the idea of using a braided leather cord or a pretty ribbon for the strap.
