How to make a Herdy felt gift bag
1. Choose your coloured felt.
2. Print off the herdy felt bag template and cut around the outline.
3. Cut two rectangle shapes in the coloured felt you chose. These will form the front and back of the bag.
4. Cut out the ‘peep’ face detail in white felt.
5. Pin the ‘peep’ face shape onto one of the coloured rectangle shapes and sew into place with white thread.
6. Take two black sequins and sew into place with black thread.
7. Pin the two rectangle shapes together and pin a 44cm length of ribbon—as shown—to become the bow tie.
8. Sew around the edges with the colour-matching thread, remembering to use white on the ‘peep’ face section to complete the bag.
9. Your Herdy felt gift bag is complete!
