Halloween Treats

I wanted to share this little idea with you while we still have a couple of weeks till Halloween.  While there's no way I'd sew enough for all the trick or treaters, these little treats would be fun for a child to bring to school and share.

I got the idea from HERE via HERE where she made these Christmas ones.  I thought, why not try Halloween ones?  Add googley eyes and what kid wouldn't love that?  (Rex has always loved googley eyes.)

I cut out some Halloween shapes.

Then I stitched around the edge, leaving a small space open.

I stuffed it full of candy corns.

Then I added googley eyes.

The pumpkin one was a little trickier because I had to sew this on the front piece...

...before I could sew the two layers together.  (Otherwise you'd have no room for the candy and we just can't have that :)

They were super easy to make.  It'd be great practice if you're just learning to sew.

Oh, and in other news....yesterday Kim from Today's Creative Blog featured my blog.  I was really excited.  I always wanted to be featured on her site.  You can see the feature HERE.

Tomorrow my mom is releasing a new pattern that I think you'll love.  And, this time it's for the girls.  See you then.  Thanks for reading.

That is so great, I agree it's also a good idea for a kids' birthday party as a Give away.

Hiya Cheri,

I love this idea! It is so simple, but something the kids would just go ga-ga over! I have got the googly eyes and am all set to make some for halloween, with the paper bags I already have.

By the way, this post totally inspired me to make something similar, for Family Home Evening refreshments.
We watched some of the All Blacks rugby game for FHE. For treats, I put their lollies in sewn paper bags, except I printed the All Blacks logo on the paper pag, and then sewed around it.
I took some photos, so it will be on my blog at some stage.
Thanks so much for the inspiration!

I made gingerbread men same way one year but just stuffed them with batting then sent through mail and they went just fine. Wonder if you used thickest paper and maybe put candy in a baggie first if they would mail. It costs extra to mail it this way but love sending odd things through the mail. Like drink bottles filled eith goodies, flip flops, frisbies, a coconut from hawaii years ago!

These are really great!

Hi Cheri!
I used your Treat wrapping as idea to create an Advent calendar for a good friend of mine. Thanks for the inspiration! You are great ;)

If you wanna take a look, here is the link to my project (in German):

Is it REALLY made of paper!?
That's excellent idea, thank you so much! My daughter birthday party is coming and I really hate plastic goodie bags! Now I'm going to sew some paper ones for her :)))
