I can’t remember the last time if ever, I purchased a pre-made Easter basket. This year, however, I decided to make bags for The Grands.
I used a reversible Trick-or-Treat Bag pattern by Kenzie Mac. I fell in love w/this pattern several years ago after seeing it at the AQG Quilt show in Mesa, AZ. I especially LOVE the jute webbing handle!
I made the first bag for no one in particular, using the lovely Hidden Garden by Miriam Bos for Birch Fabrics .
After showing it to my middle son, (who is temporarily living back at home w/me), and telling him how it’s actually a pattern for a Trick-or-Treat Bag, he suggested making the reverse side in Halloween fabric so The Grands can use it for trick-or-treating too. Duh! It doesn’t have to be Easter on both sides! I can’t believe I didn’t think of that on my own!
So that’s what I did.
Easter on one side.
And Halloween on the other.
I love how they turned out. Now to fill them w/goodies!
Have a great holiday weekend.
