HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN FABRIC TREAT BAGS
WHAT YOU NEED to make halloween candy bag:
- Halloween Fabric
- Pinking Shears
- Rotary Cutter, Ruler and Mat (optional)
- Sewing Machine and Thread
fabric goodie bag step-by-step INSTRUCTIONS :
STEP 1: fabric
These DIY fabric treat bags are a great project for all those random Halloween scraps of fabric leftover from other Halloween projects.
But, of course, you can purchase fabric at your favorite fabric store.
STEP 2: cut fabric / ribbon
With a scissor or a rotary cutter and ruler, cut a rectangle of Halloween fabric that measures 5” x 13”.
Cut a piece of ribbon 20” long.
STEP 3: ribbon placement
Fold the ribbon in half. Take the folded end and pin it on the right side of the fabric on one of the long sides. It should be pinned 1 1/2 inches from the top (short sides are the top of the bag). The folded edge of the ribbon should extend slightly beyond the side of the fabric.
To prevent the ribbon from getting caught while sewing, fold the ribbon into an loop shape and pin it in a few placed to hold it in place.
Then, fold the fabric in half so that the right sides (pretty sides) are together and the fold is at the bottom. It will now measure 5” x 6½”.
STEP 4: sew treat bag side seams
Go to the sewing machine and stitch the two sides using a straight stitch and a 3/8” seam allowance. Don’t forget to backstitch at the beginning and end.
STEP 5: trim
With pinking shears trim the raw edge of the side seams and across the top of the bag. A pinked seam edge will help to keep the seam from fraying. Don’t worry if you don’t have pinking shears, just leave the edges raw.
STEP 6: turn treat bag right side out
Flip the bag right side and gently push out the corners. Voila, a finished goodie bag.
STEP 7: fill with goodies and tie bow
The final step is to fill the bag with candy and tie a pretty bow around the top.
One thing nice about these goodie bags is after the candy is eaten, kids can repurpose the bag to store some little treasures such as marbles, jacks, stones and lots of other things.
This so simple Halloween Treat bag can also be used as a gift cardholder.
