I have a friend with older kids and she wanted a trick or treat bag that was more like a pillow case with handles. I found this pattern on Earthgirl for a Quick Carrier bag and thought it was perfect. The pattern only gives you a tiny drawing and the measurements so that you can make it yourself. I finally found a way to use all the math I learned in school! I love geometry! :)
|Math skills at work!|
|I didn't want it to be this big, this pattern is more for a grocery bag, so I measured down about 12 inches and then cut.|
|I had to take about an inch off the sides until it looked good. Then I cut out a felt pumpkin face.|
|Time for Trick or Treating! Lots of candy can fit in this bag! |
I thought the tutorial was really easy to read. The only changes I made, besides the size, was that I lined the whole thing. I thought it would last longer through the years of use.
