I was going to show you pictures of retreat, but that can wait.

Today, I have a little bag I made this morning.

I made a trick or treat bag for my little guy, from a fat quarter I was gifted.

I thought the fabric was not at all to my taste, but one of the clearings of the give away table at my quilt group turned up this , and it was handed to me because it had cats on it. The colours are kind of Christmas meets Halloween. Red and green, cream and orange, I found it a very odd combination.

So, this morning it became a small tote bag.

Here is a closeup of the fabric.

The bag took less than an hour to make and it even has fleece padded handles. All those bags I have made have taught me a few tricks.

It is just the right size for a three year old.


  1. That is an excellent bag for a little guy! Love the bag in the previous post too......and best wishes to Doug Dog for his special day.

  2. That looks like the perfect little bag for your kiddo, and a great way to use up a fat quarter you don't love!

  3. Strangely attractive design and color choice. Great save.

  4. I love that fabric, but I had to look hard to find the cat! Great trick or treat bag.

  5. What I like about Halloween is for Spotlight to sell the unsold skulls and roses fabric after Halloween at 70% off. We don't do Halloween because my family is not into festive stuff.

  6. So cute, and so practical, and yes rather odd in the colours and not exactly a Halloween-looking cat! Thanks for linking this diversion :-) up with DrEAMi!
