Supplies

For optional embroidery

Step 1) Cut the fabric pieces.

Download and print the cutting guide.?Halloween_Bag_Cutting_Chart_-_121814.pdf

Cut a front, back, two sides, and base from the bag fabric following the cutting guide.

Cut a front, back, two sides, base, and two straps from the lining fabric following the cutting guide.

Optional: Cut a frontpillow cases linen, back, two sides, base, and straps from the interfacing following the guide.

Step 2) Embroider the front panel.

Embroider the bag fronts as desired using designs from OESD’s “All Hallow’s Eve” pack #12313. (Optional)

Glow-in-the-dark thread was used to “highlight” areas to be seen with the lights turned off. No special machine needles were needed to use this thread.

Note that hot irons should be kept away from the glow-in-the-dark areas, as the thread will melt. Consequently, it’s a good idea to interface your fabric prior to embroidering to keep heat contact to a minimum. To activate the thread, simply hold it to a bright light, then turn off the lights!

Step 3) Make the contrast panels (contrast bags ONLY).

Sew the bag upper front panel and the contrast lower front panel together, right sides together, using 1/2? seam allowances. Press. The finished size will be 10-1/2? x 12-1/2? for a large bag or 5? x 5? for a mini bag.

Repeat for the upper and lower back panels.

Sew one upper side panel to a contrast lower side panel, right sides together. Press. The finished size will be 12-1/2? x 3-1/2? for a large bag or 5? x 3-1/2? for a mini bag.

Repeat for the second set of side panels.

Step 4) Make the straps.

Fold 1/2? to the wrong side along each long edge of the strap pieces; press.

Fold each strap in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, making sure the finished edges are even.

Stitch along the long edges of each strap, 1/8? from the finished edge.

Set straps aside.

Step 5) Construct the bag (all views).

If you are interfacing your bag, fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the front, back, sides, base, and strap(s) following the manufacturer’s instructions. If making the contrast bag variation, stitch the contrasting pieces together first, then apply the interfacing.

With right sides together, attach the short ends of the bag sides to each end of the bag base, creating a long strip.

Safety Tip:?Concerned about trick-or-treat safety? Add a strip of reflective tape to the bag sides before attaching them to the main panels.

With right sides together and raw edges even, attach the side/base strip to the front bag panel. If using contrast panels, also match the contrast panel seams.

Attach the side/base piece to the bag back panel, aligning the raw edges and matching the contrast panel seams.

Step 6) Attach the straps and lining.

With right sides together, baste the strap(s) to the bag.

With right sides together, attach the short ends of the lining sides to the ends of the lining base, creating a long strip.

With right sides together, attach the lining sides/base to the lining front panel, aligning raw edges.

Attach the lining sides/base strip to the lining back panel, aligning raw edges. Leave a 3? opening along one side for turning the bag right side out later.

Turn the outer bag inside out. With right sides together, place the outer bag inside the bag lining.

Pin, matching seams and raw edges.

Sew around the upper edge of the bag.

Turn the bag right side out through the opening in the lining.

Push out all edges and corners. Press.

If desired, stitch 5/8? away from the upper edge of the bag.

Using a hand sewing needle and matching thread, slipstitch the opening in the lining closed.

This is an easy to make pouch for beginner sewers.

When we purchased our lake cottage earlier this summer, the first thing we said is “we have to get rid of all of this wallpaper.” When we first stepped into the home, it was a little overwhelming. In fact, the pattern in the kitchen is what my sister had in her kitchen a couple homes ago and the basement bath has a pattern that a friend of mine had from her childhood.That’s a few more years than I care to admit.
