Simple Trick or treat Bag Tutorial!

A reader named Julie asked if I had a trick or treat bag tutorial.
I wrote her back and said No but I would make one.
So here it is Julie.

What you need!
4 15X 18 pieces of fabric (Just buy a half of yard of 2 different fabric)
2 18 inch pieces of ribbon
something to cut with
a cutting mat and ruler
sewing machine
and pins

First cut out 4 15X 18 pieces of fabric
Next you will need to sew a 1/4 inch seam around the printed fabric leaving the top open.
The second fabric do the same but on the bottom half leave a 1/2 in seam for turning.
Next sew on pen ribbon on right side of printed fabric for handles.
Sew them on then place the with right sides together take the black and printed fabric and put them in side each other.
Pin all the way around the top.
Then using a 1/4 in seam sew around the top.
When your done pull the black fabric out and it will look like this.
Now pull it through so the right side out (did I even say that right)

Now when it is right side out you will need to sew the bottom closed.

Just iron shut the 1/2 inch opening then pin and sew a 1/4 seam.
Turn it so the printed fabric shows, iron.
then sew atop stitch around the top.
Then your done and you have a cute trick or treat bag for you littlest ghost and goblins.
