Making a Quilted Picnic Bag

June 3, 2010

We picnic a lot. I love to keep this sack full of plates, napkins, wipes, etc. I appreciate having all the items in one place and ready to grab and go. Finished bag.

 

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Cut one circle 13 inches. I used reversible quilted material.
  2. Base circle.
     

  3. Sew 1/2 inch bias tape or seam binding to the circle. Any contrasting color works well.
  4. Sewing on bias tape.
     

  5. Sew 6 inch tall piece of quilted material to the seam binding and bottom circle. Your piece will now start to look like a tube.
  6. Sew 1/2 inch bias tape or seam binding to the top of the six inches. The same contrasting color will work well.
  7. Adding body of carrier.

  8. Cut 2 pieces twelve inches high and 22 inches long or as long as 1/2 the diameter of the quilted circle.
  9. Fold over and you will now have a 6 inch high piece to sew to the seam binding. Sew both pieces making sure there is a 1/2 inch opening between each piece where they meet.
  10. Attaching drawstring top.
     

  11. On the folded edge measure 1 1/4 inches and sew a seam for your drawstring.
  12. Cut two drawstrings 44 inches long and 3/4 inch wide finished.
  13. Draw them through with a safety pin and close.
  14. You are done!

After a picnic, this bag can be washed and "recharged" for your next day in the sun. Enjoy and be sure to apply sunscreen!
