Childrens toy bag

Here is a toy bag I recently made for my friend's son's first birthday. All material is thrifted. The farm animal bag fabric is a second hand childrens sheet from Savers, the felt and binding I used for the drawstring I found in op shops.

I used bunnybum's tutorial for the bag. I am very happy with how it turned out, so much so, that I will be making more personalised toy bags for childrens christmas gifts this year. I fill the bags with small toys which make it exciting for the little ones to delve into.


  1. super cute idea! I recently made a knapsack backpack of sorts like this for my nephew & tucked his birthday present inside. =)

  2. Those are GREAT!!! Lately I've been appliquing kids' names on items too - they love seeing their name on stuff! I love the fact that your bag was made from thrifted items - that's definitely an upcycle project!
