DIY Halloween Treat Bags from Golden Rippy

Hi, I 'm Rachel from Golden Rippy. I design patterns, chase my kids around and binge watch shows on Netflix. I love Halloween! It gets a little crazy around my house. My kids beg for like 3 costume change each. So this year I'm going the easy route and just letting them pick their favorite one at the store. First year I won't be making them costumes. Ain't no one got time for that. ;) So here's a quick, easy little project that you can whip up and feel like Martha Stewart. Ready? We're going to have some fun today! We're making little Halloween treat bags.

 You'll need:
  • 1/2 yard burlap
  • dark brown fabric paint
  • paint brush
  • ribbon (black or orange)
  • and treats! Oh, and your sewing machine of course. DSC_0258
First, cut your burlap to 5" x 12" pieces.

Now you get to paint it!

Brush fabric paint onto your stamps or use the hole in a tag as a little round stencil. Repaint your stamp as you stamp your burlap.

 Wait until it's nice and dry before setting it with an iron.

Once, it's set you can fold the bag in half (right sidesfacing), and sew the sides with a 1/2" seam allowance.

 Cut the notches off the bottom corners before turning inside out.

 Aww, a little bag.

 Now fill it with little treats and tie the top with 11" of ribbon. Cut the ribbon ends at a slant to prevent fraying.  Admire your little bag. Now eat all of the extra candy and hide the evidence! And don't forget to give your little treat bag to someone awesome...like a friend, co-worker, or maybe that nice teacher that puts up with your children. I know I have a lot more to make then! ;)
