I didn't take a picture before I cut it but this way you can sort of see how I cut it.
I sewed up the bottom and one side.
I added a buttonhole on the top of the bag (what used to be the cuff of the pillowcase).
Folded the cuff towards the inside and sewed around the bottom of it.
Threaded the ribbon through the buttonhole and worked it through the inside edge with a safety pin. (It's folded over in this pic)
After finishing the edges of the ribbons, here is the finished product!!
(It's a little twisted in the picture)
I can hardly wait for Abby's birthday so we can fill this cute little bag with her church busy toys!! I am super excited to make similar bags for other purposes now that I know how easy it is!!
I found the tutorial for the bag here, http://makezine.com/craft/how-to_tuesdays_pillowcase_lau/
I didn't do a hanging strap, used ribbon instead of twill tape and cut mine to shorten it and make it narrower.
