Last time I completely flaked out on Iron Craft, but I’m back this week with a challenge all about the letter A. The idea was to do something with a letter a, or a craft that started with a, or something like that.

Well, the girl’s name happens to start with a, so I knew I wanted to put an a on something. I thought about doing an apron, but she actually just got a new apron for Christmas so that’s low on the priority list.

Then I remembered this plain little dollar store bag she got at a kid’s birthday party. It once was decorated with foam stickers, but they’ve long since fallen off, so I decided to add an a instead.monogram dollar store bag

What You’ll Need

  • small bag from dollar or discount store
  • piece of felt (purple is her favorite)
  • letter cutout (optional)
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • fabric glue

What You’ll Doletter a bag monogram

If using a letter cutout, trace the letter onto the felt and cut it out. You could also just freehand it if you’d like.

Add ribbon embellishments with fabric glue, if you like. I just added mine to the top and bottom of the letter. Let dry.

I think this would be a great little project to use as a favor bag or to do with bigger kids. Because this looks like spring to me, I might tuck some Easter treats inside, too.

Do you like crafting with monograms or initials? I’d love to hear what you do with them.
