These adorable pouches are simple to make! They are made from 9” x 12” felt rectangles (felt can be purchased anywhere basic craft supplies are sold). The sample pouches are created by hand, using the blanket stitch around the edges of the felt pieces and French knots for the eyes (a hand sewn running stitch close to the edges of the felt pieces can be used in place of the blanket stitch). Buttons are sewn to the ends of ribbon pieces to make the handles. Patterns will make 5 1/4” x 6” pouches. Enlarge or reduce patterns to make pouches different sizes – enlarge pattern 150% to make a tote bag or trick-or-treat sack. To make critter softies instead of pouches, simply fill with batting and embroider across the top.

Adorable, fun project!! I am making 35 bat bags for my two boys' classmates in their classes at school for Halloween treat bags. For the girls I made custom bows to sit to the side, and I bought all neon colors (yellow, green, purple, pink, orange, and blue) and mixed up all the pieces and made each bag with all the colors ( pink body, green wings, yellow large circle with orange small circle, purple and blue bow with orange back of bag). Plus I stitch them together with all different colors contrasting embroidery thread. They all are unique each, and so adorable!!
