Last month was Sew, Mama, Sew's Scrapbuster month and there were soooooooo many good ideas for how to use up all your scraps to make something cute/practical. Check it out if you get a chance. That is where I got this idea for the alphabet.
These are easy but they kind of take a while to finish the whole set. So if you're giving this as a gift, don't try to make it last minute. It's 2 layers of fabric with two layers of cotton batting in the middle. Trace the printed out letter on the fabric and sew along the mark. The person who made this tutorial says to cut out the small holes on letters like B or Q or R first and then sew around the edge, but I sewed first and cut them out later and it worked fine. Just do both and find which way is easier for you.
I got the reversible drawstring bag tutorial from Yarnmonster. I love these bags. They are so easy and quick. The ABC is one layer of felt sewed on.
