I was inspired to make this when I remembered making 25 of them many years ago for my son's second grade class party. These sweet little bats can be used as party favors, decorations for a party, or even as a bean bag toss game! Hang them from the ceiling or in a tree or use them as place card holders for a BATTY party or meal! They really are simple to make and if not for Halloween, how about hanging them in a classroom for a study of mammals! If you're a teacher, your students can "go batty over reading"! Use your imagination! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approximately 3" high with 8" wingspan

Supplies Needed

  • 1/4 yard black fabric (cotton, velveteen, sateen, or other)
  • filler such as rice, beans, crushed walnut shells, or plastic pellets
  • small glue-on googly eyes or tiny scraps of felt in white and black

I have been fascinated with quilting since I was a little girl sleeping under a Dutch girl quilt my grandmother made. Now that I?m a grandmother myself, I market my original and whimsical designs under the B. Bumble & Co. name. Most of my patterns are designed for a simple freezer paper applique technique, but will work with any method. They are not complicated and most are easy enough for beginners. I have a blog at where you can keep up with my tutorials, tips, and other postings.
