Easy to make, convenient, allows you to carry all your bingo crap in one bag!

I searched everywhere to buy a bingo bag and couldn't find anything nice, so I made one.

I followed the patter at this website: http://freebingobag.com/
It was very well explained and easy to follow.

I had a hard time uploading pics, so....if your not sure about a step go to the website above for pics.

Instructions

  1. How to make a bag. Make A Bingo Bag - Step 1 1

    Create a pattern:

    Part 1 (Inside):
    Measure 14" x 21". Cut.
    Measure and draw 1/2" seam allowance on both sides.
    Measure every 2" and draw a line in.
    Measure 7 1/2" from the bottom and draw a horizontal line.
    Draw 1/2" seam allowance on the bottom.

    Part 2 (outside):
    Measure 7 1/2" x 41". Cut.
    Measure 1/2" seam allowance on both sides.
    Draw lines every 4" to show line placement.

    Part 3 (Bottom):
    Use a protractor or a bowl to get a 7" circle.

    Next you will need to draw lines on the outside fabric. Draw these every 4", use a ruler to do so and remember to start counting after the seam allowance. I use the pattern as a guide.

    Do the same with the inside piece BUT make the lines every 2". Be careful not to draw above the dauber holder fabric.

    Align the inside fabric to the lines you made on the outside bag fabric.
    Sew in place vertically using a double stitch and reinforce at the top.

    Sew into place with 1/2" seam allowance.

    Finish the bag like a drawstring bag. I used two strings and then tie knots at the ends.
    Remember to make a button whole where the string comes out or else it will tear.

Thanks for this! Our band boosters have a bingo program to support our marching band, and I was looking for some giveaways. I'll pick up some fun fabric and make some of these to give away!
