Step-by-Step Halloween Treat Bag:

Before you start any project, gather all your supplies and have a quick read through the instructions just to familiarise yourself with the terminology.

Step 1:

Cut out an 8½” circle from orange felt. I used a plate to draw round. Using the templates, cut 3 leaves from the green  felt and 3 bats from the black felt.

Step 2:

Mark and then cut 16 holes around the circle. The marks should be made about ½” from the circle edge and approximately 1½” apart.

Step 3:

Thread the first length of wool all the way round the circle through the holes. Tie the ends together in a knot.

Step 6:

Take each leaf and bend the stem around one strand of wool on the “handles”. Glue the top of the stem to the base of the leaf.

Step 7:

From the remaining orange felt, cut 3 x ¼” wide strips of different lengths, 4”, 5” and 6”.

Step 8:

With each strip, loop one end over one strand of yarn and glue. Take the other end and glue to the reverse of the bat’s head.

Tip: to aid gluing, weigh down with something like a paperweight.
