Cute Polaroid Handlebar Bag Tutorial

As some of you already know, I love riding my bike!  However unless whatever you are wearing has pockets, there is nowhere to put things like your phone, wallet, etc. So, that's why I came up with this cute bicycle handlebar bag! :)
Tools and Supplies: Felt, Ribbon, Zipper, Sewing Machine OR Needle and Thread.
1. Cut out 2 pieces of white felt, the size you want your bag to be.
2.  Applique on your design. I just used some scraps of felt, cutting some black & gray, and some colorful strips of felt to go under the "camera lens" to make it look like a polaroid.
3. Sew your bag pieces to each side of your zipper.
4. Cut two 12" (or longer if you like) pieces of ribbon and stitch down the middle of them to the back piece of your bag. These will be used to tie the bag to your bicycle.
5.Unzip your zipper and fold the bag in half (inside out)
Sew up the sides and bottom, and the flip Right Side out through the opening on the zipper!
And now you have this cute little handlebar bag to hold your stuff while you ride!
You could even do something besides a camera, maybe a robot? or, just use cute fabric!
I would LOVE to see your version! send me a link to pictures! xo, Katie
