It's a sad state of affairs when the army guys have to live in the dishwasher of the play kitchen. Poor fellas. Let's make them a bag!
For this bag, I used:
Four 11"x11" fabric (you can make yours any size you like, adjust other measurements as needed)
2 for outer bag (camo print chosen by my son - nice work!)
2 for lining
One 10" strip of velcro
Two 3" pieces of wide twill tape (you could also use ribbon or make fabric tabs to match your bag)
sewing machine, thread
Start by finding the center of the top edge of your outer bag fabric (I just do this by folding it in half and doing a light finger press).
Center tab at top edge of outer bag and pin.
Lay your lining fabric on top (right sides together) and pin along top edge.
Do this again for the other outer fabric, tab, and lining fabric. You should now have two squares that are an outer/tab/lining sandwich. Sew along that top edge of each one.
I pinned all along the center of the bag because I'm going to serge my edges. This way all the layers are held securely together but I don't have to remove pins as I sew. If you don't have a serger you should get one. It will change your life!
Flip the bag right side out and press. I like to do a final topstitching around the entire top edge because it finishes everything off nicely. And that's it!
