Last Minute Witch and Bats Spooky Halloween Treat BagsLast Minute Witch and Bats Spooky Halloween Treat Bags

These Witch and Bats Spooky Halloween Treat Bags are a fun craft and easy to make even if you don’t have a sewing machine. I made 2 different styles of Spooky Halloween Treat Bags so you can choose the best one for your kids.

After finishing our Owl Halloween costumes I started to make My brother’s one. He wanted Dracula LOL. But I noticed that they didn’t have treat bags for the party we are going to!  So I finished the costumes yesterday and started these cute witch and bats spooky bags.

How to Make Witch and Bats Spooky Halloween Treat Bags

They are pretty easy to make. It took me about 3-4 hours total to make both bags. Emma loves any bag and she was all excited about this one and my brother is counting days for the party!

As I mentioned before I don’t know much about sewing, I just sew LOL. So sometimes it’s hard to explain technical things but I’ll do my best.

Supplies

  • 1 Yard of white fabric {it can vary depending on the size of the bag}
  • I reused some laundry bags from Hotels as linin.
  • Fabric Paints
  • White Rope
  • Halloween ribbon
  • Freezer paper

I cut the fabrics. For Emma’s bag, 10 Inches x 14 inches {35×26 cm} both white fabric and lining. For my brother’s bag 12 Inches x 16 Inches {30×40 cm}

I sewed lining fabric right sides together on 2 long sides and I short side leaving one open.

Pinch bottom corner together as in the image below. Then I measure 2 Inches {5 cm} from the corner and marked on both sides. Then I traced a line joining both marks.

I stitch and cut the triangle left leaving about 0.5 inches like in the image below. Did the same on the other side.

When you unfold and open up the bag it will look like this. I repeated the same on the main fabric and of course on the other bag too.

I made a break here and started with the painting Yayyyy!.

I prepared some illustration on my Silhouette Studio. For Emma, I made a flying witch and for my brother, I made a spooky tree with a bat hanging LOL. You can download the cut files clicking on the images below.

Then I cut the freezer paper. Once it was done, it was a little bit tricky because it had so many small parts that weren’t attached to the big design so I had to use some scotch tape to keep them in place while I place the whole stencil where I want to paint. Then carefully I removed the tape putting back the pieces where they should be and immediately I ironed it.

I painted all in black except for the pumpkins that I painted them in orange. I messed them both a bit because I didn’t wait for enough for the paint to dry =(.

Once I removed the freezer paper I got back to the sewing part LOL. I sewed the fabric and the lining together. I placed lining fabric inside the outside fabric right sides together. I stitched around the top of bag 1/2 inch from the edge leaving a 2-3 inch opening for turning bag {It’s better to leave this on the side}

I turned the bag inside out.

Push lining inside the bag and sew all the way around the top of the bag. This closed up the opening I used for turning. I added the ribbon in this step on Emma’s bag.

With the white rope, I made a braid with knots at the ends {Sorry for the painted fingers LOL}.

I Place them on both sides of the bag and I sewed them.

The final touch was some cute ribbon bows on the knots.

In my brother’s bag I used the rope as follow. When we pull both sides of the rope the bag ruffles! So fun!

Tadaaaaaaa!!!! Ready!

    Oh, these are SO cute. I can’t believe they were once laundry bags. Way sturdier and better than going out and buying treat bags. You are so creative. Thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday.
