Are you busy getting ready for a handmade Halloween? This holiday has a tendency to “creep” up on us… no pun intended!
The pattern is called the Striped Market Bag, and it’s usually made with 3.5″ wide strips. For the trick-or-treat version, use a single fabric, and cut it to the specified size of the outside body pieces in the directions (14″ x 14″). Skip the front pocket to show off the fabulous bat fabric!
To make it with this single piece of fabric (instead of strips), you’ll need 1/2 yard of the Bat Double Border for the outside. Don’t forget 1/2 yd of Dark Tree Branches for the lining, and 1/4 yd Dark Clouds for the straps!
Finished tote size: 13″W top x 9 1/2″ bottom x 11″H x 4″D.
This bag is a fabulous way to use our Bat Double Border fabric.
We also have a free quilt pattern available for our Wicked Eve collection here. You may recognize this one from our recent ad in the October issue of American Patchwork & Quilting!
