I went fabric shopping with my sil-S to look for some prints for her stand mixer cover. While I was looking around I saw this super cute print and thought it would be so fun to make a candy bag for my nieces for Halloween.
Thankfully I already had some experience in making simple lined totes like this so I was able to whip them up in just a few days.
This was for the nieces.
This cute candy corn was on the inside.
Aren’t they the cutest? My third niece-K is not pictured but she got a bag too.
After I got the niece’s fabric cut, I realized that the nephew’s probably would like them too. So I looked for some fabric for them. My oldest nephew-B is a bit older and the cutesy print probably wouldn’t be his cup of tea. I found this print that was a bit more mature and made him a drawstring bag. The design was based off the fishing drawstring bag, just larger measurements.
A few detail shots.
I had bought the orange print from the same fabric store and was planning on just making it unlined. But ultimately decided that it would last longer and look better if there was a lining. Luckily I was going to Joann Fabric anyway and quickly looked around for something. All I could find was orange and black. Then I stumbled upon this white with black triangles and it was perfect.
I even had enough fabric to make a third bag so I reversed the prints with the white on the exterior and the orange on the interior for my sil-S. She’s so lucky!
These were fun, nice, and quick projects. And hopefully they’ll last for several Halloweens to come.
