Halloween Treat Bags

Well it's been a while since I've blogged. We had a major deployment at work and I've been working late days and nights sometimes 17 hour days. With school back in session the commute has almost doubled The good news is .... I carpool with the hubby and I found a way to be productive during that time.

My mother-in-law taught me to crochet!!! Whoot Whoot!

I found this great free pattern for the adorable and FREE happy bat bag crochet pattern on Red Heart. I added my own special touches the google eyes instead of buttons amd put the buttons on the handle. I then used the same pattern and various colors of yarn to create the other bags. I'm going to be giving them out to all the kids at the Halloween party we are having and I'm obsessed with making them!

To make the bat wings, I just printed out a clip art graphic and then cut it out and pinned it to the felt and was able to use it as a pattern.

Each bag takes about 3 hours, so I've been able to complete about a bag a day. Until I can find a glue gun that plugs into the car, I do that part at home when the lil one is fast asleep.
