What can you do with a couple of old pillow cases and a length of ribbon? You can make a couple of perfect Halloween treat bags! We have three designs here, all of which you will get with this download. They make the perfect light-weight bag for your little trick-or-treaters to gather their spooky stash in!
We used our cutting machine to cut out the designs onto iron-on adhesive like this from Michaels, as well as this glow in the dark iron-on to add some fun detail. For those of you who do not have a cutting machine, we have included a PDF that can be printed onto iron-on transfer paper and applied to your pillow cases. Once your designs are cut, simply place them onto a washed pillow case. Press with an iron for 1 or 3 minutes. We like to press until the edges of the protective layer of plastic starts the crinkle. Then peel that layer off and re-press briefly with a dish towel over the design to protect it. Your homemade Halloween treat bags will then be good to wash and dry as normal, though dry on a low temp only to protect the design from peeling over time. We stitched a length of ribbon to the open edges of our cut down (shorter bags for the smaller kids) pillow cases to act as a handle for your little ghouls.
