For a while now, I have been keeping The Boy’s foam blocks in the vinyl bag they came in; the zipper had broken a while ago, and it was kind of a pain. When my friend gave me this awesome helicopter fabric, I knew just what to do with it!
I made a very simple duffle bag for his blocks. It’s so easy, I didn’t even use a pattern.
First, figure out how big you want the bottom of your bag to be. I used a large mixing bowl and traced around it. Then, to cut the side, you need to figure out the circumference. There is an easy way to find the circumference: diameter x Pi.
After you find the width of your bag, then simply make it as tall as you need it to be. Make sure to leave a seam allowance.
Start by folding under the top of your bag twice, hiding the raw edge. Iron it in place, but don’t sew it.
