“Easy to follow instructions. Everyone loved the bags!!”

They are fully lined and measure 11 inches square and are 3 inches deep. They have a nice and sturdy handle so they will hold lots of candy. If your trick or treaters want more candy, or a bigger tote bag, just add a few inches to the height and/or width.

I give you instructions and templates to hand applique the cat and candy corn guy on the bags. If you prefer to machine applique instead, that would just fine! The instructions come with lots of full color photos, and crisp and clear pattern pieces.

I've made my patterns very easy to read and understand. I give you a complete list of everything you will need to complete the project. I've broken everything down into step by step instructions and have included LOTS of full color photos and illustrations. The pattern pieces are very crisp and neatly drawn using a computer program.


You can use my patterns for personal use and to make things that you sell from your website, online shops, and craft shows.

All photos were taken by me, and all illustrations, pattern pieces, and instructions were created by me. You can not redistribute the pattern, images, or photos in any way. You also can not claim the finished item as your own design.
