    Well this is what I spent my evening doing!!! This is the first time I have had a chance to touch my sewing machine in over a month. I think it came out alright.

    the little oneshave not been very coperative lately so I couldn't get any time to sew or quilt. Now that school has started and both kids are going, I may be able to get to some of my projects that I want to do

    That is very nice.
    I plan on making trick-or-treat bags for my little ones, too.

    This will make the 3rd year our DD has wanted to be the same thing and wear the same Cinderella dress. It was one of the $25 or $30 dollar ones that lights up!! DH griped about paying that much for it at the time bc he thought she'd only wear it once. HA! It actually saved him money! She's worn it for "dress up" and to a few Halloween parties. This will be the 3rd trick-or-treating trip! THe only problem is that it ISN'T washable with the lights!! Hello Tide-To-Go pen!

    The baby will be wearing his Cookie Monster suit again this year. We bought it big, and he still loves it!

    I don't know how many more years this will go on, but I'm totally amazed BUT THRILLED! Less aggravation and saving money! LOL!

    I have decided to make the fabric bags bc the plastic ones just don't hold up well on a good night of candy-grabbing. The pumpkins are bulky...the fabric ones are WASHABLE! and will be used again and again. (seems to be catching on).

    Cassandra,
    Did you make the sides and bottom out of squares or just one solid piece? How big is your bag? :D

    I know I would have loved to use this going door to door! Though maybe a bit bigger. Between us five kids we'd usually get an extra piece of candy because, despite my father's plea not to, one would always chime in, "and it's our Dad's birthday too!"

    I used 7 inch squares with a 1/2 inch seam allowance so the squares wound up 6 inches sides and bottom are 3"x13" again 1/2 seam allowance I used batting that I got at walmart dont know what it was called but it looked like felt almost but wasn't it came on a bolt it was very easy to work with and cut I used my roatery cutter to cut it!! the handles ar 12 or 14 inches x 2 inches i just folded the fabric under and sewed a line down the middle then sewed to bag. I have not made it bigger but it can hold alot of candy for one bag it was like 1/4 yard of each of the materials so i spent all of 2 or 3 dollars making this bag!!! can't beat that price and they can use it over and over!!!!
