Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Usual sewing skills and beginners knowledge of quilting and applique.

Pattern Description:

Trick or Treaters often come to our door with plastic pumpkins in which to collect their treats. I thought that unique, quilted bags to hold their treats would be a great complement to their creative costumes, so designed these. As with many of my patterns, I used my artist husband's drawings.

The three sizes include a small one for toddlers on up to a larger sized one for older children.

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.

I am sorry, but we cannot sell to Europe nor any other countries involved with the EU VAT.

  • Large bag: 13 x 1-1/2 x 5 inches - Medium bag: 10 x 8 x 4 inches - Small bag: 8 x 6 x 3 inches
