Sticker-Patch Bag

Picture of Sticker-Patch Bag
My young nieces love decorating with stickers, more than when using more basic tools such as crayons or finger paint. I think the girls appreciate the finished look of stickers and feel creative placing them. This project creates a cute bag and removable patches to stick on; a Sticker-Patch Bag Kit that a young child can have fun decorating and redecorating.
The patches are made removable by attaching a Velcro-hook backing. The bag is made from fuzzy felt allowing the patches to attach. The materials and tools needed are:
1. 1/2 yard felt
2. 1/4 yard fabric, coordinating the felt
3. Many patches (20 or more), in several themes (animals, school, flowers, at the beach, &)
4. ~1 ft Velcro backing, iron-on or adhesive
5. Scissors
6. Fabric marker
7. Sewing machine
8. Iron
9. Scrap piece of paperboard, from a box of cereal for example- If using iron-on Velcro

My nieces think so also. They have been redecorating the bag for trips- to the beach, to the zoo, craft day... I hope they will also be able to start incorporating souvenir patches from these trips.
This is really cute. My daughter would love a sticker patch bag.
