How to make a Halloween Treat Bag for 18" dolls FREE Tutorial

This week, we round out our mini-Minion look-a-like costume series with a fun, quick treat bag made from felt! I added the Gru logo to mine, but it's super easy to adapt to whatever costume you have up your sleeves....

You'll need some felt, ribbon, and embroidery floss. Ready? Let's get started!

If you want an applique, that's easiest to add at the beginning. I used a double sided fusible ("Wonder Under" and "Stitch Witchery" are both pretty easy to find) to add the Gru logo. 

Iron everything into place (following the directions on the package, of course!) 

Next, it's time to start stitching! Lay one side panel underneath the bag's main panel, and blanket stitch along the edge. 

When you get to the bottom, turn the corner and keep going until you've got the whole panel attached.

Add the other panel the same way, then run a blanket stitch along the top edge to finish everything off.

Cut two pieces of ribbon for handles (mine were about 6" long) and stitch those into place.

And...voila! Your doll can carry her goodies in style!

Thanks for joining us!
