Tricks for Treats

I started my Halloween sewing last week.
I bought some of Riley Blake's 'Boo For You' collection last year and made some pillowcases for the kids.

Argyle liked his so much, it has been on the bed all year. After making the pillowcases, I had to buy more fabric to make matching trick-or-treat bags. I was a little late last year and never got them made. In fact, when I pulled all the fabric out, I forgot excatly what I was going to do in the first place. Good thing I remember about Monica's little tote tutorial. With a few adjustments, it was perfect!

Trick-or-treat bags were the first thing on my Halloween sewing list. I fussy cut the scenes so the kids would have matching bags. I did want to make Paisley's just a little bit girly though. I didn't have any girlish Halloween fabric in my stash, so I went to one of my local shops. I couldn't find what I had wanted, but I think I found something better. These cute litte ghosts from Andover's Matilda line. With the little bits of pink and purple I thought it was perfect for a little ghoul.

Since I had already cut out the fabric for two bags, I decided I shouldn't let the third bag to waste.

So ....
