Today's Guest: Sisters Stuff

We are Whitney and Alish from Sisters' Stuff
and we are so so excited to be on eighteen25!
We think these girls are great and love reading their blog!

Last year I made this Trick-or-Treat bag for my daughter and thought I
would share a tutorial on it with you!

Bag-I got mine at Michaels
Embroidery Floss and Needle
Wonder Under
Pattern for words or initial

First, use something round to trace a circle. A bowl straight from the kitchen works great! Then cut it out with scissors. I did mine double thickness so I didn't loose color once my material was against my bag.

Next, pin your pattern to a different piece of fabric and cut out your letter. You could also trace your pattern onto your fabric if you want. Since I was using black fabric I just pinned on my letters and cut around them.

Now you should have something like this.

You can stitch along the edges of your circle for a little more decoration. Using embroidery floss.

Now use wonder under and iron on your circle to your bag. Do this with your words or initials as well.

If you want to add ribbons to the side of the circle make sure you add them
you iron down the side you want them on.
Last, tie on ribbons and add any extra embellishments!

Now you have a Trick-Or Treat bag that you can use year after year! The best part is that it is not bulky for storing like those big orange pumpkins! Now I guess I just need another
Trick-Or Treater to use the other bag I made!
Happy Halloween!
