Sew-a-thon

I've had a sew-a-thon going on at my house. I don't know if I've ever cranked out as many projects within a two day period. I got all seven of the Trick-or-Treat bags finished for my grandkiddos and two more to boot. They turned out really cute. Some of the fabric I bought at fabric.com and the rest at Walmart. I usually don't purchase fabric at Walmart. The saying "you get what you pay for" seems to apply particularly well in the fabric department at Walmart. I never use their less-expensive fabric on my other totes. However, I decided since these Halloween bags will only be used once a year it would be foolish to buy an expensive fabric when a less expensive one will do. Plus they had a great selection of Halloween fabric and, did I mention, it was $2.44/yard? Yes, that was a determining factor as well. These little totes are fully lined and interfaced with fusible fleece. I might put some in my Etsy later this week. Anyway, here is a sampling of some of the Trick-or-Treat bags I created...

Notice the lining on the one below -- it cracks me up...

I've figured out who each tote is going to, I have mad deductive reasoning skills. And I am super giddy excited!
