Boo kits are so much fun to make (you can see the one we made a couple of years ago for Ruby’s teacher here!), but they can be a bit pricey. Especially if you have a house full of children like we do, and they all want to BOO a friend or two!
These mini boo treat bags are SO easy to make. A great beginning sewing project for kids. You can find one similar in my kids’ sewing book that is coming out this fall! Make a dozen and fill them with candy. It’ll set you back a bag of Halloween candy and about 1-2 minutes of sewing for each bag!
No hemming the edge or ironing involved! The tops of the bags are unfinished, and that’s okay! You can even use pinking shears to cut across the top for a decorative edge. This will also prevent the fabric from ever fraying. Ready to make some darling treat bags? Grab some scrap fabric and let’s get started!
Boo Treat Bags Sewing Tutorial
Halloween fabric (mine was left over from this fun project!)
scissors (pinking shears, optional)
Cut out 2 (5×7″) rectangles of Halloween fabric. Sew the sides and bottom, leaving the top open.
Turn right side out, fill with candy, and tie off the top with a ribbon.
Then, all that’s left to do is pile everyone into the car and start delivering them! These Boo bags literally take under 2 minutes to make using a sewing machine and are a GREAT beginning sewing project for kids.
