Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished!

I just got word that Shannon received her package of Halloween goodies, and saw on her website that she posted a picture of them. So now I can show you the bag I made for her. It's one of my favorites so far! Ready? Let's go!

Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished! How's that for a colorful tote bag? For the outside shell, I picked out fat quarters from my stash and cut 2 1/2 inch squares of four different colors that I thought were particularly Halloween-ish. Then I sewed them together in a random fashion to form the lower part of the outside. I fused some fleece onto the back and did a zig zag stitch in black over all the seams...sort of reminded me of the stitches on Frankenstein's scars!

Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished! Since we had to use fabric from our stash to make these bags, I pulled out what little Halloween themed fabric I had and decided that the bag lining would be the perfect place for this fun fabric I had purchased to make the pocket on last year's Halloween apron.

Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished! I love the cute pumpkin faces and the happy colors in that fabric!

Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished! The stripe fabric was purchased with the intention of using it for the binding on that same Halloween apron, but I ended up going in a different direction for finishing the edges, so it came in handy for the drawstring closure on this bag. The idea for the top part of the bag was from this lunch bag tutorial over at Pink Penguin, with a few changes for size and such.

Halloween Tote Bag ~ Finished! The cute pumpkin and witch fabric for the top section of the bag was what my Halloween apron was wrapped up in when I received it from my swap partner. You can see it HERE along with the fun apron Micki made for me.

And of course the purple jumbo ric rac just had to be included! I love that stuff!

So that is the bag I made for Shannon. If you want to see all the other goodies I sent her along with it, you can pop over to her website and check them out. One of the things you might notice in her pictures is the card I made to go along with the package. I'll share with you how I made it very soon...it's easy!

Happy Stitching!
