Movie night at our house means popcorn! My 3 year old son loves popcorn but when I give him a bowl most of it usually ends up on the floor. He likes to play/watch a movie so he is moving around a lot and trying to bring his popcorn along with him…so cute but messy!
I thought he would like his own popcorn bag so with my yarn in one hand and my hook in the other I went to work! He was very excited when I gave it to him and immediately wanted to make some popcorn.
I filled up his bag and he loved wearing it around/eating it out of it and what’s better it stayed in the bag! I added a drawstring at the top so the popcorn wouldn’t fall out as easy. He really enjoyed his own special popcorn bag!
The bag measures 8″ tall, 4″ wide with a 4″ depth and 14″ for the strap drop.
The free pattern is listed below.
