One of my roommates in College has a wonderful family tradition! After Trick or Treating her kids leave their Halloween candy on the front porch and “Magically” it turns into a prize in the morning! I fell in love with the idea!!! I can’t stand all the candy after the holiday! There is just too much! So I am adding to this fun tradition and I have created a “Magic Halloween Bag” to put the candy in! You could also simply make this bag for Trick or Treating! It beats the Pillow case I always used as a kid! They are just so darling!!!
Let’s get started…
For this project you’ll need a variety of Halloween Fabrics. I bought 7 prints all 1/4 of a yard. You will also need a yard of a fabric for the lining of the bag. I bought my fabric at Walmart and all together it only cost me $6
Cut each print in strips the width of the fabric. Vary your strip size for a fun random look.
Press this finished section with an Iron.
Sew the fabrics together leaving a small opening where you will then turn the bag right side out!
Press again with an Iron.
Sew a straight stitch to encase the ribbon.
Turn it right side out and there you go!!!
It’s always fun to Trick or Treat!
With lots of yummy things to eat!
Like M & M’s and Licorice,
Handfuls from a candy dish!
But all that candy can’t be great!
It might give you a tummy ache.
So toss it in,
And close it tight!
And when you go to sleep at night
This magic bag has a surprise!
It turns your candy into a PRIZE!
