What I am trying to say is I don't need to be starting huge projects! Then I saw a piece of Orange scrap polyester in my stash (from previous owner) and ding I knew what I wanted to do. Apparently everyone and their mother in blog land here have started to create all of their halloween decorations. I am apparenlty one of the slackers. So here is my contribution to the iron craft challenge this week- a halloween jack o'lantern mini gift bag.
Not to worry this project was super easy. First I started with a piece of orange scrap fabric, already nicely cut into a rectangle. Wahoo. I sewed up the bottom and side.
Next I added black bias tape, it was leftover from a previous project so I was happy to use it up! Attach to the top of the bag.
Make a handle for the bag, again I was using the leftover bias tape, I just sewed it to itself!
Next add face. I used scraps of black fabric and turned it into a fusible applique with that iron on stuff.... I cut out eyes, nose, and a mouth.
I just drew it out by hand. Yeah I am so not an artist!
Iron eyes, nose, and mouth to the bag.
Done. Isn't he cute?
See easy peasy right? I have several other pieces of orange fabric that I will probably never use so I may make more. Too bad I don't have kids (or nieces or nephews) this would be a great gift for some kids!
Until the next iron craft challenge!....
