How to Make Mini Halloween Treat Bags
I am always searching for fun projects. Many I create myself and share them with you. This one I came across at Bernina’s sewing site called We All Sew and thought I would give it a go. These are super simple mini Halloween Treat bags that any beginner can make. They are a fun way to hand out treats to little goblins this year. Treat Bags and small at home parties will be the way to go this year for Halloween. These mini treat bags are a perfect solution. Thanks to Kymona Tracey at Bernina for this terrific little project.
I used fabrics that I had on hand for this project that I purchased at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores. Two of the fabrics were remnants but this is a perfect project for fat quarters. If you do not have any Halloween fabrics on hand head to Hobby Lobby, Fabric.com or onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your mini Halloween treat bags.
