More Trick or Treat Bags

I’ve been having so much fun putting together the Halloween Treat bags that I planned to sell at this weekend’s craft show.  I’m now re-thinking the craft show, as I may be able to sell them on my own without having to sit at a table all day and wait while I miss my Saturday with the family.  We’ll see…  I have decorated each bag just a little differently.  I have sewn ruffles.  I’ve done pennants and ribbons and tons of stenciling.  No two are the same, and that’s mostly because I like to mix things up AND because I usually have some little mess-up to fix that changes the design slightly.  You know, a drip of paint or a stencil that didn’t stay in place.  I’m gonna tell everyone that there is no extra charge for imperfections :)

So, here are the new bags that I have created.  My theme all along has been Kooky not Spooky”, as I’m not really into the scary stuff.  They are fun!  I have had a difficult time coming up with cute boy designs.  Most of mine are best suited to little girls.  Suggestions for boy bags are certainly welcome!

Bright and cheery!

I have to give a shout out to my Silhouette!  That little machine has worked its hiney off for me over the past week.  Every shape and letter stenciled on to these bags has been cut out with my Silhouette.  Love it!

Hey Kim. You have been one busy crafter. They're all so cute but I think your favorite is mine too. Boys designs are always hard for me too. Especially the older they get. The ones you've made look like they'd work for boys are girls to me. Maybe you could do a silhouette of a dump truck dumping the pumpkins in a pile or a scarecrow.

Have a great night. And thanks for your sweet comment about my witchy shoes.
Hugs...Tracy :)

These bags are so cute, Kim!! You are so crafty. My adolescent kids have abandoned their adorable Halloween bags for the larger-capacity pillow cases. I'm okay with that as long as they bring me home some Snickers :)
Have a great weekend! Lisa


Just wanted to let you know that I'm giving you The Versatile Blogger Award!! Keep up the great work!!


CUTE bags!!! I'm having the same dilemma with whether or not to do a craft show!


Wow! These bags are awesome. I think we have something in common: we both love our Silhouettes! Thanks for stopping by PitterAndGlink and commenting on my treat bags! :)


So cute!! You've been busy!
Maybe a pumpking with a bowtie for a boy? Or using buttons instead of bunting and ribbons?
Thanks for linking up to Show & Share!!


Wow! They are all so cute! Thank you for the inspiration - I totally have to make one now!

These are really cute! You are one busy crafter! I'd love for you to link up on {Not So} Tough Tuesday's on One Tough Mother!


Hope to see you there!

Those turned out great.

I don't do craft shows as a seller. I have done a few and find it is easier to sell my items on-line. Good luck!


some people like doing craft shows, others don't. My items are generally too large to sell online.
These bags would be easily sold online.
I think they are really cute! I too, love my silhouette!
