How-To: Trick or Treat Tote


Forget the flimsy plastic pumpkin—take your little ones out in DIY style with this sturdy trick or treat tote tutorial from Molly’s Sketchbook on The Purl Bee!

Halloween tastes are ephemeral. One year your kid might insist on dressing up as a pink princess, while the next year nothing but a ghoulish ghost will do. It’s all part of the fun! But while costumes change from year to year, one thing abides…candy!

To celebrate this most timeless aspect of Halloween we sewed up this sturdy little Trick Or Treat Tote. It’s easy to sew but so well engineered that it will serve its purpose year after year. Plus, with orange reflective ribbon as the handle, your little goblin will be safer in the dark!
