trick-or-treat bags

Yes, I already made my girls trick-or-treat bags last year.  One teeny problem, they were gigantic (which will come in quite handy when they get older and want more candy), so I thought I’d make something a little more pint sized. 
I recently had purchased the Jane Market Bag pattern over at Posie Gets Cozy and thought it would be the perfect starting point.  I actually am planning a bunch of Jane Market Bags for Christmas, but we’ll see how far I get!  I simplified and scaled down the pattern to make it more kid sized.  If you’re really curious, the main pieces I used were 12″ wide by 10″ tall. 
Oh, and I couldn’t resist adding some smiling candy corn on the front, just because.
I think this size would make a cute little gift bag, too, so don’t be surprised if you see more in the future!  More Halloween goodness to come, including the girls’ costumes and some decorations. 
The giveaway winners will be announced early tomorrow morning, cross your fingers.  ๐Ÿ™‚
