This children’s bag is a practical companion for daycare and leisure. With a size of 20 x 20 x 10 cm , it offers enough space for lunch box, cuddly toy and even a little change of clothes. It is also a great eye-catcher with its original pocket flap. My little one loves her “fox bag” hot and deeply and carries it proudly into the daycare every morning. But my tall one also thinks it’s really great because you can store your treasures in it so nicely.

With its adjustable strap, the bag can be flexibly adapted to the size of your small carrier. It is sewn from robust, synthetic leather and a lining made of cotton fabric.

I hope you enjoy sewing.

CROP:

First use the templates to cut out all the pattern pieces from the pattern sheet.

Made of fabric 1:
2 x pattern A (outer and lining
pocket) 1 x pattern B (pocket flap)
4 x pattern ear (2 x opposite)

Made of fabric 2:
2 x pattern A (outer and lining
pocket)
1 x pattern B (pocket flap) 1 x pattern C (inner pocket

Made of fabric 3:
2 x pattern appliqué face (1 x opposite)
2 x pattern inner ear (1 x opposing)

Made of Vlieseline H250:
2 x pattern A (outer and lining
pocket) 1 x pattern B (pocket flap)

Made of jersey or synthetic leather remnants:
2 x pattern appliqué cheeks
1 x pattern appliqué nose

THAT’S HOW IT WORKS:

Preparation:

Iron out the fleece on the fabric 2 pieces. Pay attention to the information provided by the manufacturer. Mark the position for the magnetic closure on the cut part for the pocket flap using the template on cut part B.

Next, take two cut pieces for your ears. Position the inner ears on it and sew them tightly (tip: fix them with Wonder Tape so that they do not slip).

Then put the other two ear parts on right over right and stitch them together. Cut the seam allowance back to 3 mm. Clip small triangles around the curve from the seam allowance so that the curves fit well. Turn your ears and shape the corners nicely.

Sew pocket flap

Now you take the cut part of the pocket flap made of fabric 1 and position the appliqué parts of the face made of fabric 3 on it. Again, you can use Wonder Tape to fix it. Now topstitch the inside edges of the application. Since synthetic leather does not fray, you can use the straight stitch.

Then position the cheeks and nose on the pattern B using the template and also sew them on with a narrow edge. Now draw your eyes thinly in pencil and sew the lines.
I like to use the straight stitch. You can also use a tight zigzag stitch.

Next, take the cut part of the pocket flap made of fabric 2, place it on the finished outer flap on the right side and stitch the two parts together. Cut the seam allowance back to 3 mm. Cut out small triangles around the curve from the seam allowance so that the curves fit well.

Now the attachment of the magnetic lock is being prepared. Iron a wonder dot on the marking for the fastener (on the lining) so that the fabric does not tear out later. Use the washer on the magnetic button to mark where you need to cut the fabric. Carefully cut two small slits in the lining at these marks. Caution, do not cut into the outer flap.

Now turn the pocket flap, shape the curves nicely and topstitch them with a narrow edge.

Now it gets a little freaky. Slide the magnetic button through the fabric from the right side of the lining. Put the washer on the left side of the fabric over the arms and bend them over.

Sew outer pocket and food pocket

Pick up a pattern for the outer pocket made of fabric 1. Use the template to transfer the position of the magnetic lock to cut part A. Mark the position of the slots and cut them.

Slide the magnetic button through the fabric from the right side. Put the washer on the left side of the fabric over the arms and bend them over.

Place the two pattern pieces for the outer pocket made of fabric 1 on top of each other on the right, close the two side seams and the bottom seam.

It continues with the inside pocket. Fold the fabric to the right and close the seams. Leave a turning opening on the bottom side. Cut the seam allowance back to 3 mm up to the turning opening. Turn the inside pocket and shape the corners nicely. Now fold the seam allowances of the turning opening inwards and iron the inside pocket well.

Place the inner pocket on the right side of the food pocket. The exact position can be found on the template of pattern A. Steppe the inner pocket now with a tight edge.

Place the two pattern pieces for the food bag made of fabric 2 on top of each other, close the two side seams and the bottom seam. Leave a turn opening in the bottom seam.

Now the bottom of the pocket is sewn like the outer pocket. To do this, fold the corners so that the side and bottom seam meet exactly. Topstitch the corners with 1 cm seam allowance. Cut the seam allowance back to 3 mm except for the turning opening.

Sew the bag together

Pin both ears left to right on the back of the outer pocket and sew them tightly. You can find the exact position on the template from pattern A.

You do the same with the pocket flap. Put it in the center right to right on the back of the outer pocket and sew it tightly.

Cut two 10 cm pieces from the webbing. Now thread a square ring onto each of the pieces of webbing and form them into loops. Put them in the middle of the side seam and sew them close together.

Now put the outer pocket right to right into the food pocket and sew the fabric layers together around the upper edge. Make sure that the back of the food bag (with the inside pocket) is on the back of the outside pocket (with the pocket flap). The webbing loops and the pocket flap are located between the two layers of fabric on the outside and the lining pocket.

Flip the bag through the turn opening. Fold the seam allowances of the turning opening inwards and close them. Now check the food pocket in the outer pocket and stitch the top edge of the pocket around the edge.

Attach the adjustable strap

Finally, the strap is attached to the bag. To do this, thread the belt strap from bottom to top through the right square ring and then stitch the folded belt in the right corner. Finally, for better stability, sew another cross through the bar. Use the zipper foot / presser foot here. This will bring you particularly close to the square ring.

Next, thread the slider onto the open side of the shoulder strap. Make sure that the belt does not twist.

Now slide the belt from the bottom up through the left square ring and then from right to left through the underside of the slider. Fold the belt inwards and stitch it in the square. Sew a cross into the square for stabilization.
The children’s bag “Fuchs” is ready!
