trick or treat loot bag tutorial

Materials needed:
*1 Bandanna
* Scrap fabric if you want a contrasting color inside of bag.
* Ribbon / fabric for the handles / or cotton webbing

I used 2 bandanna’s to make 4 loot bags. I bought these from Walmart. How cute are they and they only costs $.99 each!

1. Fold bandanna in half and then half again, so it makes a square.

2. Trim off the right, left and top edges of bandanna. Make sure bottom is still a folded edge. You will end up with two pieces.

3. Cut contrasting fabric the same size as the cut bandanna’s. Or if you are making one bag use the other half of the cut bandanna.

4. With right sides folded together, sew on the right and left sides of both the bandanna and the contrasting fabric.

5. Measure 1 1/2″ up and 1 1/2″ over and cut.

6. Open cuts, line up to make straight edges and sew shut. This will give the bag shape.

7. Fold bandanna right side out and leave contrasting fabric wrong side out.

8. Place bandanna inside of contrasting fabric with right sides facing.

9. Sew all around top of fabrics leaving a 3″ space to turn bags out.

10. Pull bags right side out and iron.

11. Top stitch around top of bag.

12. Add a ribbon or I used cotton webbing per my sons request. I would have liked some cute little fabric handles.

That’s it!

A cute little trick or treat loot bag!

It’s a super quick and easy project. It took us about 1/2 hour from start to finish. The whole project went great with the exception of my little girl stepping on the foot peddle and causing the thread to get jammed.
