Lego Bags


These drawstring bags are a quick and easy gift to make for Christmas or a birthday.  For the under threes you could always use Duplo instead of lego. 


I have used the Play Blocks fabric but if you wanted you could always change the fabric and pop in a little notebook and crayons or a Polly Pocket.  They are great activity bags for taking a few things when you are going out to a cafe or doctor's appointment and your children could decide what goes in.
 

I have been making these to sell at markets - but as always I find the pricing difficult.  How do others work this out? Any suggestions.

Also I haven't really done a tutorial before but am happy to do one if there is any interest.  Let me know.  I will try my best.

Can't help you with the pricing problem either, I find that the hardest part of the whole exercise.

I love this idea.
Might have to have a go at making some.

At markets I have seen similar bags (just the bag) from $4 all the way up to well over $20

How large is the bag? Depending on its size, I'd pay up to $20. Hope this helps.

There have been some good posts on other blogs on pricing - its a hot topic! I don't sell so read them out of interest. There is a formula if you are wanting to make a profit, something like cost of materials + your time + overheads X 2. But that might make them a bit expensive for a market!
