A trick-or-treat bag I made for a cousin's toddler. Had some great ghost fabrics to go along with the CAC2 Ghost cut offered up this week. Too perfect! I added a little 'Boo' tag to write his name on it. I used Create Machine, but that isn't an option :(

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 12 x 16 fabric cuts (4)
  • 12 x 4 fabric cuts (2)
  • ribbon
  • white & black fabric to cut
  • craft fuse interfacing
  • sewing machine
  • wiggle eyes
  • fabric markers
  • black cardstock patterned paper

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Make Bag: You can use pre-made bag or ready to decorate tote if you want. Otherwise make one out of Halloween fabrics. This is a simple reversible tote, there are many tutorials online, I just make it how I want. Cut 12 x 16 rectangles of fabric, For the "outside" my 12 x 16 was made of 2 materials sewn together. Sew outside & lining together: put right sides together and sew 3 sides of each. Make straps, or use ribbon. I folded 4" strip sewed one side then turned and added interfacing. Add interfacing to outside of bag. Pin straps to outside of bag. Fold out bottom to create gusset ( I sewed in 1.5" on each side) for inside and outside. Sew inside to outside, making sure right sides are together(unseen) and leave hole for turning right side out. Turn bag, sew around top, closing hole. (Again, many better bag tutorials this is how I did mine.
Cut fabric from cricut. Iron on heat-fuse backing to fabric. Cut out shapes. I used a new mat and a new blade. I used white linen for the ghost (don't recommend) and black broadcloth. The broadcloth cut GREAT! The linen was a little rough, but still ok. I cut the cheeks out of white and used fabric pens to get it pink.
Iron on layers to the completed bag.
Cut "Boo" tag from patterned paper and black cardstock. Add wiggle eyes. Tie to straps with Halloween ribbon. I used spiderweb ribbon.
