Tiny Treat Lined Drawstring Bag + Other Halloween Projects

Friday, October 9, 2020

Happy Friday! Today I want to share a little Halloween project I made this week and revisit past projects too!

We are sad that we won't be able to participate in trick or treat in our neighborhood this year, but that didn't stop us from buying some candy. I wanted to make a small bag to hold a little secret stash of candy to keep upstairs in my sewing room. You never know when you'll have a candy emergency and need a piece of chocolate!

I made the tiny size from my lined drawstring bag pattern. I was working at warp speed on this project, and went from picking out fabrics to finished bag in less than 30 mintues! So satisfying. I love this cute ghost print from the Spooky n Sweet* collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. If you turn the top edge over a bit, the bag morphs into a little bin! Perfect for easy candy access :)

These days it's all about finding little things that can bring us joy. Making this goofy little candy bag made me feel better, even if just for an hour or so. I have a feeling I'll smile whenever I see it though. Pretty good for 30 mintues worth of my time!

I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the Halloween projects I've made over the years:

  1. Thanks for the pattern links and your secret candy stash bag is SEW cute, Jeni!!

  2. I really love your lined drawstring bag tutorial! I'm a long time knitter / crochet addict, useless with a sewing machine - but with the help of your tutorial I've been able to make a few project bags to store my projects. Thank you so much, Vicky
