Trick-Or-Treat Bags

So I was recently commissioned to make some trick-or-treat bags for our upcoming Super Saturday (where the women in our church get together on a saturday to create all kinds of fun craftiness). These are not fantastic, but they're what I came up with:


You can expect a tutorial soon, as I'll be making instruction pages for the women who will be taking the supplies home to make them there. A very few details about the bags--they're made of fleece (which allows for unfinished edges without unravelling)(I'm still debating the necessity of lining them with something slightly less stretchy, but at least fleece will stretch, and then return back to regular shape, unlike felt), and the little details I sewed on for faces are all reverse-appliqued. Way easier than it sounds.

Anyone wanna make some trick-or-treat bags? When I was a kid, we just used pillowcases... everything's so fancy these days! :)

We use the dollar plastic pumpkins from Walmart. Although trying to store those is kind of a pain.

Okay, so you didn't have fancy bags.

But you did have an adult-size jack-o-lantern costume when you were three--made lovingly by your nine-months pregnant mommy that looked a lot like that orange bag.

The costume. Not your mommy. Although, come to think of it, I may have looked just like that bag...
