"Sew Simple Saturday" - October 2015
Hi everyone and welcome to our first Sew Simple Saturday! One thing that I LOVE about our Sewing and Crafting community is how much we like to share our knowledge and encourage and help others. So the FIRST Saturday of every month we will have a Linky Party to link up our tips, techniques and tutorials.Everyone loves and needs a little encouragement, so be sure and spread the comment love around!
I have a simple little Halloween project that is all Treats and no Tricks that I would like to share to get this party started! We live in a very rural area and just don't get many visitors at Halloween. Except for two little sweeties from down the road. I always like to make their Treats a little extra special. I usually give them a store bought bag each with a Caramel Apple, Halloween cookies and other sweet treats. Maybe even a little book or two. So this year I wanted to put to good use some cute little Halloween Hexagons:
I found these adorable little Gift bags that I think are just the right size for little ones! And I love the colors!
I took one of the Hexagon kits and made a hexie flower for the little girl! I decided to hot glue the hexie flower onto the bag. I left the papers in the hexagons so the glue would not come through the fabric. I think it is simple but really cute! Ashley will love the little Black Kitten!
For the little boy, I decided to use one of the strips from a Fat Quarter and create a Halloween scene across the bottom of the bag! I used a lightweight Heat n'bond and simply ironed it on across the bottom of the bag! (Only press it for about 10 seconds with a warm iron) I think Trevor will really like it!
I will have to wait until closer to Halloween to make the Caramel Apples and Halloween Cookies. I have plenty of time to shop for some fun goodies too! I love spoiling these two.
I can't wait to fill up these two bags with lots of goodies!
I hope they like their Trick or Treat bags! And I hope you enjoyed this Sew Simple Halloween idea!
