WIP Wednesday: Halloween Bags x 3

Happy halloween!  I didn't sew any costumes this year but I did sew some halloween bags for the girls.  Tyler, the first born, has a cute pumpkin bag with his name on it that he uses every year.  Then I usually go and buy a plastic basket each year for the girls.  I figured it was time for the girls to have some cute bags of their own:)  I pinned these cute bags last year but didn't have enough time to make a trip to the fabric store.  I just followed her tutorial.  I love the way they turned out and love that they can use them every year too! 

Supplies used: Canvas bags (Hobby Lobby), Sweetwater Sew Mama Sew (white with black writing), Riley Blake Dots (orange dots), Ann Kelle-Robert Kaufman Fabrics (chevron), Graphic 45 Wilmington Fabrics (orange), Kona black fabric, Making memories stamps for the big letters, Stamin' Up stamps for the "or", Black craft paint

Other projects:
Christmas tree skirt: No progress
Emily's quilt: We finally agreed on a line that we both like.  It had to be mostly pink-with no blue or too many other colors (Hard to negotiate with a 4-year old!)  It's Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow line.  I am going to make the quilt with this Cluck Cluck Sew pattern.

I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced!
