There are so many creative ways to use treat bags these days. With Halloween coming up soon, it's time to start thinking about fun ways to hand out some sweet surprises! Natalie, of Katarina's Paperie, is sharing a creative use of orange gift sacks. She is transforming them from the ordinary into Halloween fun! And, I LOVE the green stem topper! Also, be sure to see the info. on the giveaway at the bottom of the post!
These cute little carrot bags have generated a lot of questions and comments this week, and so I wanted to share a little more about them...
I wanted a cute way to serve Bunny Trail Mix and couldn't find just what I was looking for. In the past, I had used bags from Oriental Trading but they were no longer available. So, I decided to experiment. The only thing is, I don't sew. I knew what I wanted to make but also knew I had to find someone to make it! And so...loaded with bags of burlap, fabric, ribbon, and an idea, I went to visit Sallie Hahn at Andrew Downs in Athens, GA. Sallie was so sweet and enthusiastically gave it a shot! I love the finished product and wanted to share step-by-step instructions from Sallie- for all you crafty ones out there who know how to do- it- yourself!
Step 3: Line up 2 sides of carrots, right sides facing one another and matching up raw edges. Starting just below crease on leaf stitch both sides together using 1/4" seam allowance, sewing only on body of carrot around the edges. Turn carrot bag right side out.
Happy Sewing~ Happy Sunday!
