The treat bags are easy to make - even for beginners! Each bag measures 6” tall and the bottom is 8” square. This does not include the ribbon handle. They are a perfect size for trick-or-treating or having fun any time of year. The bags are made from felt that is backed with fusible interfacing. Buttons are used for eyes on sample bags. Another option would be to cut eye circles from felt. Wide black dot ribbon was used for stripes on bee and ladybug. You can sew two narrow pieces of black dot ribbon on bags in place of wide ribbon if you prefer.

This PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns for bag, measurements for wing rectangles on bumble bee, materials list, instructions written in English, and step-by-step photographs.
