Monster Truck party favor bags

My baby boy turns 3 in 10 days!!  He loves his cars and trucks – and for his 3rd birthday party we are having a MONSTER TRUCK Party!  We have had this theme in planning for a while so when my husband found a killer deal (50% off the last clearance price) on this monster truck months ago so we snatched them up to use as favors!

I figured it would be better to take the truck out of the packaging for ease of giving and in case we wanted to use the custom build a monster truck for an activity during the party!  You know I love a good favor bag so I wanted to make a bag to hold all of the treasures including the monster truck!

I had this great monster truck fabric that I thought I was going to use to make Mr. V’s birthday outfit (coming up next week on the blog) that I turned into drawstring bags to hold all of the goodies!

I used THIS tutorial from Jeni Baker’s blog – In Color Order.  I think this is the best way to make a lined drawstring bag I have ever seen.  Jeni (yep we spell our names the same) is a quilter and with this tutorial you can tell.  I think it’s ingenious!

It opens up easily and fits the monster truck pieces perfectly – with some room for a few extra goodies!  I made a purple/brown version for the girls coming to the party.
