Project: Grainline Studio Stowe Bag - Small and Large
Materials used: Quilting cotton, bias tape, iron, chaco liner (white), rotary cutter, quilting ruler
I'm a Halloween fiend so it's no surprise I had to make some trick or treat bags with our new arrivals. The fabric has been flying off the shelves, but that isn't to say there aren't plenty of spooky selections left. (Here is a link to our Halloween fabric collection.)
This was a quick, fun make after I worked my way through the initial bag. There were a few instructions that I couldn't quite visualize, but I put trust in the process and everything went according to the designers plan!
When working with the black interior fabric I was having a lot of trouble marking the pockets using the lines provided on the pattern pieces so instead I utilized my quilting ruler to measure out the spacing as intended and mark from there. This "hack" worked really well given I don't have access to tools like a tracing wheel.
I wasn't expecting the large variation of the pattern to be so large, but it would be any kid's dream to come home with a full haul in this bag. (It's also my dream, but I might have to settle for using it at the grocery store).
As I know plenty of fine folks with kids in the trick or treating age range I plan on making quite a few more up in all sorts of custom combos. Once I find a pattern I love I really like to make good use of it. Halloween presents all around!
