Reversible Quilted Trick-or-Treat Bag

Fall is just around the corner which means Halloween is coming right up! If your kids are like mine and end up trick-or-treating with a grocery sack then you definitely need this tutorial :) Crafty Betty from the contributor team is here today with a tutorial for these darling trick-or-treat bags!

Trick-or-Treat Bags
Intro Photo

Halloween is right around the corner and every year I try to find some sort of practical treat bag.  We have done the $1 buckets and they are great for the day, but somehow they always get commandeered for sick buckets…hey – we have four kids and when one gets it, we all get it.  It just doesn’t feel right to fill that bucket with delicious candy again (no matter how much it’s been bleached out!)  Last year, out of necessity (read: mom forgot to get the buckets) I decided to whip together some easy treat bags.  How hard could it be right???  Without further adieu…The Reversible Quilted Treat Bag!

Supplies:

  • 2-4 Coordinating Fabrics –you can use fat quarters!
  • Coordinating or Contrasting Thread (depending on the look you are going for)
  • ½” double fold (extra wide) bias tape
  • Quilt Batting (whatever is on sale – use your coupon!)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Serger (optional – if you don’t have one, use pinking shears or zig zag stitch)
  • Cutting Mat
  • Rotary Cutter
  • Quilting Ruler
  • Pins
  • Iron

Like I always say, this is a FUN project that is wide open to your creativity.  Follow the directions exactly or don’t.  Every single bag I make is totally different and having this basic pattern will allow you to embellish, piece together fabrics, embroider, monogram, you name it! Gather your supplies and get your fabric ironed.   Let’s get cutting that fabric!

Bag Parts:

  • 4 pieces – 13”x 12” – these will make the insides and outsides of your bag
  • 2 pieces – 13”x 2.5” – these will make the handles
  • 2 pieces – 13.5” x 12.5”  – these will be the quilt sandwich guts
  • 2 pieces bias tape – 14” – these are the finishing pieces

**If you are embroidering the main part of the bag, this is the time to do it.  Stay away from the edges!**
