To say our Elsa Party Favor Bags and Olaf Party Favor Bags were a hit at our last party would be a HUGE understatement. Both kids and adults alike, loved them. We even had a mom ask us if we would make her an Elsa Bag for her own. I don’t know why we didn’t think of it before, but this time around we knew we wanted to do an Anna Party Favor Bag. When we were talking about what we wanted to do, we worried that it might be too hard to pull off. It wasn’t.
How to Make a Frozen Anna Party Favor Bag
You will need:
- Blue Felt Rectangles (9″x 12″)
- Black Felt Rectangles (9″x 12″)
- Pink Felt (by the yard)
- Navy Thread
- Pink Thread
- Sewing Machine
- Green Puffy Paint
- Pink Puffy Paint
The Anna Party Favor Bag is made entirely of felt. To save time and money, the bag portion is made with the rectangle shaped felt pieces you can buy at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. They are reasonably priced at .25 each and the perfect dimensions to make a nice sized party favor bag.
For each bag you will need 1 blue piece plus a half of a blue piece and a half of a black piece. No need for a pattern, I simply folded the pieces in half and cut along the crease.
You will need a bigger piece of felt for the pink straps and the cloak so I bought a yard of extra wide pink felt at Hobby Lobby. For the straps, I cut pieces that were 1 1/2″ wide and 24″ long.
This is the template I created for the pink cloak that is attached to the outside of the bag. The pattern as shown here is pinned to a folded edge of the pink felt.
To create the template for the cloak, I simply wrapped a large rectangular piece of felt around a completed bag to get a sense of the right dimensions. Once I determined how wide the top edge needed to be to wrap all the way around the bag (18″) and how long the cloak needed to be to go down to the bottom of the bag in the back (10 3/4″) I hand-cut the swooping edge the shows on the front of the cloak. The template you see here is 10 3/4″ down the centerfold side and 9″ across the top.
Here is what the full cloak piece looks like after it is cut out.
To create the front piece of the bag, sew a blue half and a black half of felt together. I created a pretty small seam as you can see here.
Now pin the black/blue piece to a 2nd piece of blue felt (seam side out.) Line up the felt with the black edge. The front piece will be a little smaller than the other piece of blue felt due to the seam you created. That’s fine.
Sew down the sides and the bottom of the bag and trim off the excess fabric on the bottom seam. Turn the back right side out. That’s all there is to making the bag.
Anna’s cloak has black fringe around it. To mimic that I picked a decorative stitch on my sewing machine and sewed around the outer edge of the cloak piece using navy thread. If you don’t have a sewing machine you could skip this part or hot glue some ribbon or rick rack trim around the edge of the cloak.
Here’s out the cloak turned out with the fancy stitching. You are almost done at this point!
Pin the straps to the inside of the bag at the top. Wrap the cloak around the bag (right-side out) and pin as shown in the picture above.
Sew around the top of the bag to attach the cloak and the straps. I used the same decorative stitch as I used around the edge of the cloak but with pink thread this time. That’s it you’re done with the sewing part of the project.
Anna’s dress has flowers on blue her skirt. We used good old Puffy Paint to make those.
We placed some painters tape on the felt to use as size guides.
And here are our versions of the flower pattern from Anna’s dress.
Taa daa!!! Our finished Anna Party Favor Bag – super adorable and so easy to make.
