These projects are created by Terri, Betty, Jamie or one of the talented staff members at MakingFriends.com. They have been created exclusively for publication on FreeKidsCrafts.com with supplies you'll be able to find around your house.
This FreeKidsCraft.com project is an amazing way to use old mylar balloons. It's certainly not one of the easiest projects on our website but is worth the effort if you are good with a sewing machine. Finished totes make terrific goody bags
InstructionsCut the bottom third off the balloon straight across. Fold inside 1" all around and stitch 3/4" from the edge on a sewing machine to make a casing. Leave a small opening. Attach the safety pin to one end of the ribbon. Push it through the casing to make a drawstring.
