I love fabric party bags – they look great, are tactile, eco-friendly, last for ages and kids love them!
For my son Oliver’s dinosaur themed birthday party I sourced a lovely variety of different dinosaur print cotton fabrics to mix up and make the party bags. I also found fabulous dinosaur printed grosgrain ribbon perfect for the handles.
They were really quite simple to make; what worked really well was double-folding and stitching the top hem and handles, this makes them really sturdy – they have lasted two years now and still going strong! I have just this week made another 25 party bags for my very first Etsy order – very exciting! This also gave me the opportunity to take some photos of the construction process:
You can make these bags to fit any party theme, by varying the fabric and ribbon. If you’re planning a child’s birthday party why not have fabulous fabric party bags as a long lasting keepsake for your guests.
I have dinosaur fabric party bags listed in my Etsy shop along with other coordinated custom/personalized dinosaur party supplies – perfect for a dinosaur birthday party theme.
