felt pumpkin treat bag "tutorial"

The other day at Zoe's school they had a Halloween party (I'll make a post about that in a munite I have THREE posts to make today lol)Anyway,I made felt treat bags for her class (yes all 35 kids!!)

Here's what you'll need:
Orange felt
Black Felt
White Embroidery Floss
Green curling Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
treats for the bag (duh)

First you will need to fold a piece of orange felt in half (width wise) Then cut up the middle diving the felt into two rectangles.
Next stitch up the sides of each little rectangle,turning it into a "bag" of sorts.

After you've stitched the sides,use your black felt to cut out your jack-o-lantern face.You'll want to put the face near the bottom of he bag,leaving enough room to tie the top with your curling ribbon.After you've figured out where you want your fave to go,adhere it with your hot glue gun(eep be careful it hurts bad when you get burned with a glue gun lol)

After teh glue has dried,add your treats onside the bag and tie it up with curling ribbon!Tada one chubby little jack-o-lantern treat bag!!!

And lots of pretty green ribbon!!


  1. I'm amazed you did all that stitching! :)

  2. lol it wasn't as bad as it looked i did like 7 bags a t a time while watching tv

  3. 35!? Good gracious! They are super cute!

  4. edie,
    omg YES 35!!isnt that a lot of kiddies!! but it wasnt too bad i sewed like 7 at a time while watching tv!! lol i think that might be cheating :)

  5. Nope, that's not cheating! Breaking it down like that would be the only way to stay sane!
