Friendship Bag

After making the Halloween pull up treats for my daughter to hand out at dance class, I decided to use some of my leftover fat quarters to make a bag to hold them that she could then give to her teacher. I found this cute friendship bag tutorial but wanted to make the bag bigger. So I used the tutorial and below the pictures I've listed the changes in size that I made. It held 11 pull up treats perfectly.

this one shows the inside and my designer (haha!) label.

I cut the strips-six for each side-2.5" x 6.75", the bottom 6.5" x 12.5", the lining 12.5" x 19" and the handles 2.5" x 17" (instead of following the tutorial I sewed the handles into tubes and turned them right side out). When I boxed the corners, I sewed just under 2" from each point. If I made it again I would do something to stabilize the handles better. They were pretty floppy. But she loved it anyway!
