What’s the Project? Add a little fun to your Halloween this year with this Trick or Treat Bag Pattern. Easy to make and something the kids will love.
The sky is blue and clear today, the leaves are bright yellow and red and still clinging to the trees for a few more days, the air is crisp and cool and I’m inside my house drinking hot chocolate. It’s a wonderful time of year, isn’t it?
If you’re a parent you are probably gearing up for Halloween. Putting together costumes, planning parties, making treats. Today Kary from Paisley Roots is sharing a fun Trick or Treat bag pattern with us. Perfect to make in the next couple of weeks to get ready for Halloween!
Trick or Treat Bag Pattern:
- 2 yards cotton fabric- 1 main, 1 lining (I used Riley Blake Eek Boo Shriek Glow in the dark Skeleton)
- 4 Large Eyelets
- 2 18ft/5.5m Paracord
- Grab the pattern HERE
- Large Eyelet Tool
Iron interfacing onto the wrong side of the main fabric.
Cut a small hole into the center of each interface square.
Sew around circles with a 3/8″(1cm) seam allowance, leaving a 2″(5cm) opening.
Make sure to backstitch at the beginning and the end.
Sew along the edge using a 1/8″(.7cm) seam allowance enclosing the opening.
Sew a 1/2″(1.5cm) casing starting from the side of one large eyelet to the opposite eyelet.
Repeat with the other side.
Make sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of each casing seam.
Attach one end of one strand to a safety pin or Bodkin and thread it through one eyelet, all the way around, avoiding the other ends eyelets, and back up and through to the opposite eyelet, you first entered.
