As a child, I watched my Mom sew and my grandmother make crochet chains. Then, in 7th and 8th grade, I took what were then called Home Economics classes, and learned more about sewing and knitting. Afterwards, I continued learning on my own, mostly through books, and later TV programs, and online. In 2001, I became a quilt and web designer, and a quilt teacher. I am a co-founder and past Editor-in-Chief of The Quilt Pattern Magazine , and owner of the Quilts for Sale website, where I provide a venue for quilters to sell their quilted items .
I sell my quilt patteerns here on Craftsy's pages.

Have fun arranging your ghosts, clouds, pumpkins, and spider webs any way you'd like! Use some or all of them on your bags. You may want all ghosts, or all pumpkins, or only spider webs.
In a hurry? Sew squares of Halloween prints to your bags instead of appllques. In even more of a hurry? Make your bags entirely of Halloween prints like the smallest one in the photos.
