How to Make a Bag to Put Playing Marbles In

Save

Playing with marbles is a pastime that just about everyone has enjoyed. Marbles have been a part of our world for hundreds of years. Making a bag to store your playing marbles is a quick and easy craft that almost anyone can do. It is a great way to personalize the storage for your marble collection and it makes traveling with them an easier task.

Things You'll Need

  • Fabric (16- by 7-inch rectangle)
  • Shoelace or 16-inch chord (1/4-inch or less in diameter)
  • Sewing machine or a needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Fold the fabric in half lengthwise so that the pattern is on the inside. Make sure the corners are lined up and the fold is straight.

  • Sew a straight hem 1/2 inch on both the left and right sides, leaving the top open. Trim off the excess fabric.

  • Fold the top of the fabric over 1 inch so that the pattern side is bordering the top. Sew a 3/4-inch seam from the top of the bag, being careful not to sew through both layers.

  • Turn the bag right side out.

  • Cut a small slit in the top fold above the hem line next to the side seam. Repeat on all sides making a total of four cuts.

  • Lace the shoelace or chord through the slits. Starting with the right-most opening, lace the chord through to the left side and around the outside of the seam. Then lace through the other side. The chord is now a drawstring and the marble sack is complete.
