Thank you to Carol from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting the spooky Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop this month.
I had to jump in to do this hop once I realized it would fit in with a project I’ve had in mind for some of my grandkids and great grandkids.
Fabrics were pulled and some cutting and pressing, interfacing and sewing began.
Bag fronts were fun with some free hand appliqué shapes being attached and the kids initials were put on the bags so the kids (heaven forbid) would not get their bags mixed up. I always chuckle because the littles gather round their pile of goodies and trade their not-so-favourite Hallowe’en treats with each other trying to get more of the goodies they like! 😉
It took a few days to do the appliqué work using the stitches on my machine in a black thread to define the shapes. then I boxed the bottom seams, added my lining. Here they are all lined up just waiting for the lining to be stitched down and handles attached. Then all that’s left to do it some embellishment for the eyes.
Just a word of advice; double check your appliqué placement so the initials are better placed than mine! 😉
The handles are going on when I am teaching at my Guild on Thursday and being mailed on Friday. I’ll update my post with the finishes as the parcels are better GM readied for mailing

Next year I will make bags for the two youngest great granddaughters. They are too young to be out trick or treating this year with Covid still being rampant in their part of the world their Mom says. Here’s hoping that next year will see them able to take part in a tradition that has long been part of our lives.
Thank you to Carol from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting another fun hop, to all of the participants in the hop that I’ve been getting around and seeing, and to you for taking the time to visit my blog. 🎃💀👻 Carol
