Candy Pink is my favorite Kunin Felt color and apparently Barbie's too! I grew up with Barbies and my mother made me the prettiest clothes. I sewed some myself on my little pink sewing machine. So this Back to School DIY Barbie Bag is extra special, lots of memories and now that love has passed from my daughters to my granddaughters. 

This bag is no sew, easy and only requires two craft cuts of felt! 


  • Kunin© Premium™ Felt Craft Cut 12” by 18”– Candy Pink
    Kunin© Classic™ Felt Craft Cut 9” by 12”– Fuchsia
  • 2 yards of Ribbon
  • Velcro Dots
  • Beacon Fabri-tac or Hot Glue
  • Scissors – Regular and Detail
  • Measuring tape, clips
  • 1 yard Pom Pom Trim

1. Cut Fuchsia piece in half lengthwise.

2. Glue one Fuchsia piece along edge of Candy Pink.

3. Fold Fuchsia piece over and line up with glued edge on opposite side. Glue in place. 

4. Fold up Candy Pink 8" from bottom as shown. Glue both sides to create bag. 

5. Glue trim along top edge and lower edge as shown. 

6. Measure ribbon to desired length. Glue inside as shown. Glue on Velcro dot. 

7. Embellish and personalize as desired. Quick and easy, hope you have been inspired to create your own Back to School Barbie Bag. Makes a great clutch too. Fun project for a kid's party!
