Free Pattern ~ Trick or Treat Halloween Bags

Pin It
























Hi Everyone!

Are you ready for those little trick or treaters? Are your children or grandchildren ready to go out trick or treating? If not, I have the solution for you! Below is a FREE "custom" trick or treat bag for your children or grandchildren!

To make the bag extra "custom" all you need is their handwritten name and stitch it onto the bag! No one will get their bags mixed up after they've collected all the Halloween goodness!

If you want, you may even decide to add "squared" corners and a magnet closure! 

Click on the images to enlarge for printing. 

Follow directions for making the cat, ghost and sayings the right size.




Trick or Treat!
