Check out this No Sew Trick or Treat Bag Tutorial!
Halloween is just around the corner! I love this time of year; I love the pumpkins, the crisp cool air, the changing leaves, and the excitement in my children. My kids love to dress up as anything they want and run around the neighborhood trick or treating. The urge to craft came on strong the other day and I decided it would be so fun to make my kids new bags for trick or treating. I wanted to create something cute, but also simple and frugal (because that’s how I roll!). I came up with the idea of this DIY trick or treat bag. I’ll be honest with you….it was even EASIER than I originally had planned! (win!)

DIY Trick or Treat Bag Tutorial
You can make this easy trick or treat bag in no time! This is the perfect project for everybody! Even non-crafters! First, gather your supplies!
– Scrap fabric (I chose Halloween colors)
– Iron/ironing board
– Pattern for tracing
Find Your Pattern
Now that you have gathered your supplies it’s time to begin!
The first thing to do is search for the pattern you want on the bag. I asked my kids what picture they wanted on each of their bags. My daughter requested a cat and my son asked for a spider.
Search on google to find tracing patterns. These are fairly easy to find. You can also check for clip art in Microsoft Word or similar program.
Print off your chosen pattern and cut out the shape.
Prepare Your Design
To cut out your the design for your bag you will need to follow the directions found on your wonder under fusing.
I cut out a large square of wonder under (large enough to cover the entire shape), and ironed the rough side onto the wrong side of the fabric.
Use your tracing pattern to trace the shape onto the paper side of the wonder under.
Once the pattern is traced, cut the picture out (fabric and all).
Last, you will gently pull off the paper backing of the wonder under. Center the picture on the bag, and then iron it on.
I have found that holding the iron steady for 5-10 seconds over each section of the picture helps give the applique a nice firm hold.
That’s it! You’re done! See, I told you it would be easy!! It probably took me a total of one hour to finish both bags! Quick crafting, is my type of crafting!
Use your imagination when making your own Trick or Treat Bag. There are so many fun possibilities. You could iron on a pumpkin, ghost, witch hat, bag, skeleton, or fun lettering.
I can’t wait to watch my kids go trick or treating with their new bags!
