DIY Swoop Bag / Toy Bag Pattern

DIY lego storage bag with drawstrings

Hello there DIY-ers! I have gathered a few tutorials on how to make your own Swoop Bag (or something similar)! There are so many talented, crafty, creative folks out there so I thought this would at least be a good starting point for you if you are interested in making your own? Many people ask, "Do you sew these Swoop Bags?" No. I have used the same production place here in Seattle for 8+ years. When I started Swoop, I had to source out my pattern design to an expert. You can ready the ABOUT story here. The inspiration behind Swoop Bags was from my grandmother's toy bag that she sewed for my brother 30 years ago. The Large Bags include a 36" in diameter circular colored piece of fabric, a 6" colored edge piece, the cream colored edge piece that the grommets are attached to and that the cord goes through, black binding inside the interior seams for extra durability, nylon cording, and 4 grommets/bag.

As Oscar Wilde said, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" and we feel lucky that our bag design has been hugely popular and sought after by many DIY-ers (and some companies, too, but we won't name names). I am hoping these popular links will provide you with some helpful instruction on how to make your own Swoop-style toy storage bag. Good Luck. Please share with us your own bags. We would love to see them!!
