Sewing: My Halloween Bags
I didn't have any Halloween bags to enjoy this month...and when I saw the tutorials over at Daisy Cottage Quilting, I knew I had to do these!
I was doing the happy dance last week when I received the kit for the big bag and the zipper pouch...and then was Snoopy dancing when I figured out I'd have enough fabric left to do the small bag!
Yes, you heard me right...I did a zipper pouch. It only took me three attempts and two broken needles to get it in, but I did it! I still need a bit more work on zippers, though.
I'm in love with the way they turned out...the fabrics are way cute, the rick-rack trim is just perfect, and those little Halloween buttons on the zipper pouch are just the perfect finishing touch! I used them today at the grocery store, and got a lot of compliments from the customers and the store clerks.
One thing I need to remember: add candy to the bag to share with the little ones!
