Learn how to make a Children's tote bag and pencil case with this colourful sewing kit.
PLEASE NOTE: The lining spooled with this kit is now a red pin-spot cotton, and not the rainbow fabric as pictured here.
Your kit will include all you need to make a mini-tote bag with bright lining and rainbow strap. Inside the tote bag you will find a rainbow grosgrain tape with a lobster clip attached. You can attach this to the matching pencil case. Such a lovely make with so many features.
This kit includes full colour photographic instructions and 2, half hour detailed video sew-alongs. So, if you are learning how to sew and want some inspiration, this one is perfect for you.
The 'Colour-Me-In' fabric included in this kit features seaside motifs outlined in black on a white ground, all ready for you to colour in!
The Marvey Fabric Markers pictured here are sold separately, so that you can buy more than one kit and share the markers.

4 x panels of lining fabric
1 metre of rainbow stripe webbing
0.5 metres of rainbow grosgrain tape
1 x 20cm zip

Thread is not included in this kit. I'd suggest using a white thread. For an extra touch, you could use rainbow thread to embroider and decorate the bag.
Suggested skill level:
This beginners project is great for all sewing abilities, suitable as a first sewing project. If you are learning to sew and would like to learn how to insert a zip and make a lined bag this is perfect.
This project would also be great for youngsters wanting to learn how to sew.
Children should always be accompanied by an adult when sewing.
