As I mentioned a few days ago, I'm in the midst of planning an Indiana Jones Party for my now 7 year old.
I've been inspired by many blogs I've found...see the list at the bottom of this post.
One such blog, Em-agination, gave a great tutorial on how to make some easy felt satchels for the guests to carry their clues and such around in.
I added cording for the strap (I think she used more felt...doing it over, I'd probably just cut out more felt and sew it on as a strap, too.)
To make keeping up with their satchels just a little easier, I came up with a label for each guest. Using a graphic from Graphics Fairy, I used various fonts to create a label. I then printed the labels on fabric. (How do you print on fabric? Go here.)
After personalizing (I did leave a few blank for those last minute RSVPs...I'll just fill those in with a sharpie...) and printing out the labels, I simply cut them out and sewed them on to the flap of the satchel.
Pretty cool, huh?!?!?
Oh, and did I mention super easy and quick???

Inspiration for these satchels and all other Indiana Jones Party ideas were found at the following sites:
If you have an Indiana Jones Party post that is not listed above...let me know! I'd love to add it to the list to share with others!
