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.
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.
Cut out your pattern, remember to cut a liner if you will be putting one in.
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.
The inside piece should look like this...
Now you can sew bias tape or fold and sew over 2 times at the top (of the outside piece).
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.
Close up the bottom by folding and keeping the fold inside the lines.
Sew into place with 1/2" seam allowance.
It should look like this at this...
Sew the seam of the bag together.
Pin and sew the bottom on and if you are putting a liner in sew it in.
Turn it "right side out" and now you can sew bias tape (border) or...
fold and sew over 2 times at the top.
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.
