It's shameless commerce Tuesday, and I'm just catching my breath (and catching up on my sleep) after a crazy busy weekend stitching up custom orders, participating in an Alzheimer's Walk, and visiting grandsons to make my annual purchase of Boy Scout popcorn.
One of my really fun weekend projects was making 22 Halloween treat bags! The bright polka dots on white fabric has friendly little spiders dangling from their not too scary webs. I used darker trim fabric that has the look of rick rack (or colorful tire treads, if you're a little boy). The handles are grosgrain ribbon. These cute bags will be party favors for kindergarten class Halloween party. Another order was for a little treat bag for Baby's First Halloween.
I'll be making dozens more of these treat bags in a variety of fabrics for a craft fair in October. I also plan to add ready to ship listings as well as my current made to order listing to my Etsy shop. The 4x4x2 fully-lined cotton mini-totes are fun, functional and eco-friendly. They could also double as a doll trick-or-treat bag or tote, or a miniature car take-along bag.
Soon the frost will be on the pumpkins, and before we know it, Halloween will be here. If you'd like to add some fall color or Halloween whimsy to your table or buffet, check out my Fall and Halloween table runners. They are in the Kitschy Kitchen Stuff section of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower?section_id=10144150.
