6 Comments

These free sewing patterns from Heather Parsons teach you how to make a binkie bag to hold your child's "binkie" not matter where you go. Sanitary and cute!

Binkie Bag 

Binkie Bag

Materials:

  • 1 fat quarter (and actually less if you just want to use scraps but if you are going to go out and buy fabric don't buy more than a fat quarter)
  • Same amount of fabric for the lining (could be printed or plain).
  • 1 piece of Velcro (both sides)
  • Pattern

Instructions:

  1. Cut all pieces according to pattern. You will also cut a 10 1/2" x 2" strip for the handle

  7. Now press it in half again (it should now be a 1/4 of the width you started with).

  10. place in between the two outer pieces. Fold it back so that it won't get caught in the other side seam. You will want it to hang over the edge a bit.

  11. Pin the other outer piece over top (sandwiching the handle piece in between).

  12. Sew a 1/4" seam (I do a backstitch over where the handle is attached to make it stronger) and trim with pinking shears. Turn right side out.

  14. Lay the flap piece on one side of the outer pocket and pin to hold it in place (match the top, raw edges). Place the whole outer pocket with flap attached inside the lining (right sides together). Pin the top edge, matching your side seams.

  15. Sewn around the top edge with a 1/4" seam.

@kdq04 2738590: We have updated the pattern listed in the materials section, and it should be the correct size now. Hope this helps! -- Editors of FaveCrafts

I copied the pattern on the materials section..but it came out really small..like I don't think a binkie will fit in there! Can you give me the dimensions of the pattern pieces? Can I make this in a couple of hours? I want to make this for my great grandson who's parents are come up from NC next weekend, and would like to have it made by then..Thank you..kdq

@ajlaggis: check the list under "materials" (2nd picture from the top). You'll find the link there to the pattern.

OK - so I think that this is adorable! I wish I would have had one of these when I had babies!! Would have made it easier to find since most of the time you were tossing it in the diaper bag or purse or pocket and also would have been much easier to keep clean and not have lint, etc. on it!! I am going to have to learn how to sew just so that I can make these for friends!!

Hi ajlaggis 4683055 - There is a link to the pattern in the materials section.

where is the pattern for the binki bag?
