Cats, Bats, and Jacks for Riley Blake

Hey you...BOO! Seriously, is it Halloween yet, or a least fall?! In my mind it is. I've already made pumpkin bread and made these cute trick or treat bags for my twins second Halloween! I realized this is the first thing I've sewn for them since they're baby quilts...bad mommy! Really though, I don't have time, and when I do sew anything, it's mainly for myself. So it was a real treat to sew something cute for them with the cutest Halloween fabric called Cat's bats, and Jacks by Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs.

Here's what I made:

I usually don't use patterns and just measure, cut and sew. Sometimes, I don't even know what the heck I'm making and I design as I go! I cut, measured, and pieced together a design for the bag. I left the middle blank so I can place a pumpkin there. I cut out a pumpkin template and traced it onto the wrong side of the fabric. I then used the zig-zag stitch on the lowest setting and applique sewed it onto the panel.  I quilted the entire panel just using simple, close lines. I made a different panel for the backside of the tote using the Happy Halloween fabric and proceeded to complete the tote with inner lining and handles.

And here is my cute model Rosalie and a little bit of Jack (he would not cooperate lol).  I tried to make the bags their size so they don't get too much candy!

Bye Rosalie!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now onto Christmas presents!! 

Best wishes,
