Harrowing Halloween Trick or Treat Bag Sewing Patterns

Halloween is right around the corner. You've organised a costume (did you sew something?), but have you forgotten the most important thing for the kids?

Trick or Treat Bags!!!

How are you kids going to bring home their stash? It's time to sew a trick or treat bag (or 3!)

There's lots to consider when deciding which trick or treat sewing pattern to make. Size - it needs to be big enough to hold the right amount of candy (or maybe you should make a small one to encourage your kids to come home early without such a big pile of sugar!). Should your DIY trick or treat bag match the costume, or are you just going with a generic spooky Halloween theme?

Whatever you decide, here are my favourite handmade Halloween trick or treat bag sewing patterns and tutorials:

I made the kids' Halloween costumes, but I almost forgot about the trick or treat bags. There's so many great DIY trick or treat bag sewing patterns and tutorials. I should be able to make one before I know it, but should I go for a pumpkin treat bag or the ghost, or Frankenstein?
