When polled about the best part of Girl Scout camping (top three things), every girl in our troop said making s’mores. I decided that is a call for creating something to celebrate this amazing time we have together bonding over sticky marshmallows and melted chocolate. I created this s’mores carry all for camping but plan to use it to hold supplies for our meetings when we are back in the city.
To create one of your own, you will need the following supplies and materials.
- 1 piece of Premium Cashmere Tan
- 2 Pieces of Classic Walnut Brown
- 1 Piece of Premium White
- 8 inches of Ribbon
- Die-Cut Letters (I used Boss-O Alphabet from Sizzix)
- Felt Glue
- Sewing Machine
Start by cutting three pockets from the walnut brown. You will need 2 that measure 9 x 4 ½ inches and one that measures 9 x 6 inches. Lay them out with the largest one on the bottom and the other two about it with a little space in between.
Cut out the letters to spell MARSHAMALLOWS, CHOCOLATE and CRACKERS. Use felt glue to adhere them to the pockets and let them dry.
Pin the pockets to the backpiece of cashmere tan felt then zig zag stitch sew all the way around, stitching in the ribbon on the top to create a handle. Go back and stitch across the bottoms of each pocket.
For more stability when hanging, it is a good idea to put a small bit of stitching in the center of each pocket for the chocolate bars and the crackers. Which part of the s’more is your favorite?
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® Classicfelt; Kunin® Premiumfelt and Corduroy non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
Cheers to Bonding Around the Campfire,
