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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Usual sewing skills and beginners knowledge of quilting and applique. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 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

Supplies Needed

  • Scraps of orange, and white fabrics (or white batting scraps for ghosts) - 2-1/4 yards each of black fabric & batting for all 3 totes; 3/4 yards for small & medium sizes; 1 yard for large tote - Halloween-themed squares can also be used.
  • Silver Metallic Thread

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 patterns here on Craftsy's pages.
