Are you interested in making a felt Hello Kitty face bag? If you are, I'll show you the how-to. I hope you all understand the instruction that I give. Okay, let's get started!
1. Print, draw and cut.
First, all you have to do is print the pattern. I also include the pattern in this tutorial. Download head pattern. Download bow pattern.
After you print them, assemble them as I instruct. Draw the pattern on the felt. Make 4 identical shapes. For this bag, I used 3 different colors. One white colored felt for the face, 2 blue colored felts for the lining and one pink colored felt for the back of the bag. After that, cut those felt and allow seam allowances except the ear and top of the head. Each felt should look like this now.
After cutting the main pattern, prepare its bow, eyes and nose too. Print, draw and cut the bow, eyes and nose pattern. Assemble the bow.
2. Face and bow
Arrange and sew the eyes, nose, moustache and the bow on white colored felt like the picture below.
3. The straps
Sew the straps down securely on each blue colored felt.
4. Working on each side of the bag.
Arrange each side of the bag (White felt on blue felt. Pink felt on blue felt) and sew them down but sew only its top (The part with no seam allowance) using blanket stitch.
Arrange the white colored felt and pink colored felt facing each other and sew them down. Just sew on the blue dashes as shown below.
6. Flip it!
After you finished sewing the bag, now flip them right side out and voila, you did it!
I hope you enjoy this cute felt Hello Kitty face bag. Please feel free to leave any comments. I would also love to see if anyone uses this tutorial and what your bag ended up looking like.
I wouldn't mind a cup of coffee, if it's no trouble.
