Two things that I have always believed is that you’re never too young to make a fashion statement, and you’re never too young to start venturing into the world of DIY! Here is an easy sewing project that is the perfect activity for an afternoon spent crafting with your kids. This DIY bear felt bag for kids is too adorable!
We will show you how to craft this felt bag step by step. Just follow our instructions below and download the PDF pattern at the end of the post.
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.

I want to make this with my Cricut but I don’t see the zip file, am I missing it?
This is an older project which did not have an SVG in the post originally, but we just added it to the downloads for you!
What color did you use for the brown? “Castle” was not a color on the Felt paper scissors website.
Thanks for pointing that out. It seems to have been deleted. Mushroom is the brown nose color that matches “Castle”.
[…] you are not really familiar with felt and need a pattern you can find it here. I cut some corners with my glue gun and did not sew all the pieces. The felt I used was two shades […]

I love this little bear purse! It’s super cute!
Thank you Sarah!
I”m off line for just few days and you come up with this adorable little purse. Now what little girl can I make this for? Will be few more days before I have computer to print out patterns for this adorable little purse. This is too hot, looks like something any young girl would love.
Hubs doesn’t have printer anymore, he has my old Xp pc. What he did have no idea but oh well. Will have to wait til I get pc fixed. Finally got my new windows 8.1 out to try to download 10 but am stuck. Think would be easier to buy new computer and just shelve that one, have had nothing but trouble with it since I got it almost 2 yrs ago. And yes it’s me, just can’t seem to “get” windows 8.1. The whole concept of it makes my brain go to mush. What can I say. Need one those pc’s Aarp sells for seniors, duh.
Have great weekend.
Hope you are up and running soon! We have lots of great projects for you!!
Your bear purse is absolutely adorable. I wish I already had kids so that I could make one for them.
I hear you! My 21 year old daughter may get one for her birthday. Haha. 😉
Do you think I could transform into Mouse? Thinking I will give it a try. I will email you photo if it works.
That is a great idea! Perhaps we will make a mouse soon.
So beary cute, one of my favorites!
Ha, thank you so much!
