Halloween screams candy time! And our little ghosts and goblins need a sturdy – and adorable – treat bag to collect and haul their treats. Our shop created a super simple and seriously fast sewing project that is just perfect for trick-or-treating. The Notebook Tote Bag tutorial is a beginner friendly sewing project. It is the perfect size and weight to carry around the neighborhood. We used fabric from the Ghost Town Halloween fabric collection from FIGO Fabrics to make this bag.

This versatile pattern features 8 different sized drawstring bags. It is beginner friendly and a pattern that can be used across many different holidays, seasons, and events. These bags were created using fabric from the Dashwood Studio Full Moon fabric collection. We still have a few fabrics left!
Halloween Table Runner
Let’s decorate your table! Our latest sewing tutorial is from our shop’s blog called Simple Table Runner Using Flying Geese Quilt Blocks. This tutorial will walk you step-by-step through sewing flying geese using the Creative Grids Ultimate Flying Geese Tool. Flying Geese are popular quilt blocks and very easy to make. They turn out perfect with this tool! We used the Ghost Town fabric for this project, but scrap fabrics in black, brown, orange, and purple would look beautiful as well.

We have a How to Sew a Zipper tutorial on our blog and this pattern is a perfect one to try-out this sewing skill on.
