Trick or Treat!

Halloween was one of my favorite holidays when the kids were little, I would make them the costume of their choice every year. They had so many cute ones, and are still in the Halloween box here at my house. A couple a weeks ago Kira asked me to make her kids a new trick or treat bag, so of course I was happy to do it. This was my project yesterday along with sewing three aprons. Kira has the cutest bag that her Aunt Pam made for her when she was just a little girl, and still enjoys seeing that bag, it brings so many fun memories back for her. I hope these bags will have the same purpose for Hatch, Karas and Thanye. I can't wait to see them all dressed up at my front door yelling "Trick or Treat" as they hold out their new bags! I bet you this Grammie can fill em' up! These are the finished bags. Karas's is the orange one, it has witch's hats and brooms printed on it and then I lined it with a cute black and white swirly pattern and trimmed it with black pom poms. The boys I just reversed from each other, one has greeen ric-rac and the other has orange. I bound the cutout handle area with black bias tape.
Are you wondering what the bright red sack is? That is what I used for my pattern, it's just a sack that some purchased fabric came in. How easy was that? I didn't even buy a new pattern for this one it was free with a purchase! I just love those kind of deals!
