Mulligans are small bags of wrapped candy sold at our charity golf tournament that are used as a "free stroke" token. Each year I make around 100 - 150 of these small bags that sell for $10 each. That's $1000 to $1500 from stash for our local Domestic Violence Women's shelter!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I cut 4.5" strips the width of the fabric and serged one long side (the top). Then I cut the strip into 6.5" pieces, serge the sides together in one or two long chains and cut apart. These are then serged across the bottom in one or two long chains, separated and pressed. I turn them right-side out, but you don't have to. In an evening they are ready to fill and close with a bit of ribbon.
cotton This is some old (1995) Daisy Kingdom printed plaid that was too off-grain to use for much other than muslins or something like this.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This year I made them a bit larger (4"x3") than years before so that adding the candy was that much easier.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
These are very quick to do if you need favor bags for an occasion. You can vary the size with no trouble. Serging leaves no raw edges without fussing with turning, pressing, stitching twice, etc. Remember, they only need to last as long as the event lasts. They will be thrown away as soon as the Mulligan is used and the candy is eaten.
I may make some to use for penny candy at Halloween.
