I started out with two pieces of felt per bag.
I cut 2" squares out of each corner.
Take one of the felt pieces and measure 7 1/2" from the cut out piece to the top and make a mark. Do the same thing on the other side.
From the mark measure 1" in and then draw a curve for the flap of the bag.
Do that to both sides and then cut following your lines.
On the second piece of felt measure from the top of the square cut out pieces (like you did above) and measure 7 1/2" to the top and make a mark. Do that on both sides and then cut across on your mark. (see bottom left picture).
Take your two pieces and put them together. Sew down both sides and on the bottom as shewn below.
Now open your bag, put the two seams together.
Sew across where you put the two seams together.
This is what it will look like after you sew across your seams. Do the same thing on the other side.
Turn your bag inside out and this is what is looks like.
Next I added Velcro to the bag.
I then cut a piece of plastic and hot glued it to the front of the bag. I tried sewing the plastic on, but it was a pain and didn't look good in the end so I opted to do hot glue.
I then inserted a picture of each General Authority into each plastic piece on each bag (15 in case you didn't know) I also made a couple of extra bags for when someone other than a General Authority speaks. I will also let my little guy choose to do an activity that he has already done if he so chooses during those speakers also. I found the printable cards here.
I love how they turned out and my little guy is so excited for Conference and keeps asking me if it's Conference time yet.
If you want to see what I put inside the bags go here.
