Trick or Treat Bag Tutorial

I am doing 2 Halloween Birthday Parties this month.

These cute Trick or Treat bags are going to be the goody bags for each guest.

I love the dotted grosgrain ribbon seperating the fabrics.

I made 19 of them today. I have 3 more to go.
Want to make your own?

Here's how:

You will need:

(2) 10.5" x 14" pieces of Halloween fabric

(1) 10.5" x 14" piece of black fabric

(1) 3.5" x 45" piece for the straps

(2) pieces of coordinating ribbon (optional)

Coordinating thread.

Pin the black fabric & one piece of the halloween fabric together

along the longer 14" side and sew.

Then repeat with the other piece of Halloween fabric on the bottom side

of the blak fabric. Pin & Sew.

Iron your seams open.

Sew ribbon along the seams.

This step is optional but I love using trim and think

it just adds so much to your projects.

Place bag right sides together and sew up the sides.

Try to line up the ribbon when pinning your bag together.

For your strap, iron down from the top & bottom of fabric.
You should have a space in the middle.

Interfacing can be added for additinal strength.

Next, fold over the top about 2/3 of the way down.

Sew right on the edge of the fold.


Fold your strap in half and cut to make 2 equal strap pieces.

Keeping your bag inside out fold over the top of your bag once.

and then twice.


Insert your straps under the fold of the fabric.

I like to put my bag on my cutting mat and measure in 2.5" on either

side so I know they are equal.

Remove the accessory part.

Sew all the way around the top edge of your bag.

Make sure you keep those straps out of your way.

Then sew around the bottom edge of the fold.

Sewing twice around the bag will give it added strength to hold all that candy.


So easy!!

Happy Trick or Treating!
