I found some little 3 x 4 inch muslin draw string bags for around 20¢ a piece online while browsing through amazon. They are the perfect size for all kinds of projects. With St. Patrick’s Day right around the bend I thought it would be fun to make little treat bags that could be left behind by Lucky the Leprechaun for the little men in my life.
Step 1: Print the images onto an 8.5 x 11 inch transfer sheet. Make sure your transfer sheet is for “light or white fabrics” and not for dark fabrics. You can use our Free St. Patrick’s Day Printable.
If designing your own, you will want to flip your clip art so your text/image prints backwards. The image will transfer reverse during the ironing step. There are a lot of websites where you can purchase clip art already made for you and there are some great sites where you can piece together your own images. I love Picmonkey.com!
Step 2: When trimming your printed clip art, cut as close to the image as you can. Using small scissors will allow for more precision and less hand aching.
Step 3: Pre-iron your muslin bag flat. Next, lay the transfer sheet image so the back side of the paper is facing up and the image is touching the fabric. The iron should be on a dry, steam free setting at high heat. Press the iron to the paper and give it a good muscle press while wiggling and moving the iron around for about 45 seconds.
Step 4: Gently peel off the paper backing and admire the cuteness.
The kiddos won’t be disappointed to find these on St. Patrick’s Day
Especially filled with chocolate gold coins. Who doesn’t like gold … and chocolate?
I bet the little leprechauns at your house will feel pretty lucky when they find these bags of chocolate coins on St Patrick’s Day!
Fine Print: We are absolutely flattered that our crafty friends would want to make cute items from our original copyright patterns to sell in their online shops or brick and mortar stores. We are thrilled to grant that permission. We do, however, request that anywhere the item is for sale, (on each and every online listing OR on each item in your brick and mortar store that a Simply Notable pattern has been used), that you link back to us here at Simply Notable so others can enjoy the same free pattern you utilized. When you sprinkle the Simply Notable love back our way in the form of links, it lets us know how much you appreciate the free patterns we’ve shared. The only hard line we draw here at Simply Notable is that the free patterns themselves absolutely cannot be sold.
