Trick or Treat Bags

These reversible bags are actually really easy to make. The pattern is a little mind boggling in how you twist it all together but it’s really cool. And the resulting bags are super cute.

    I just saw the cutest skirt on Nap Time Creations to sew and I told her I was going to steal my mom’s sewing machine. Now I”m seeing that I can actually learn to sew online. I think it’s a sign! Thanks for linking up at Found & Foraged. See you tonight at 8PM!

    Great resources! I would love to learn to sew….I haven’t done it since maybe the 8th grade? Seems like a skill that would come in handy! Dropping by from SITS!

    I attended sewing classes for some months, but I started missing so many classes because of overtime that I quit. Maybe I could think of online courses…
    Thanks a lot for sharing these links. I have a look at them later.

    Stopping by from Sunday’s Best. You must have read my mind. I’ve been thinking about sewing lessons for some time, so this post is perfect. It would be nice to learn in the comforts of my home. You’ve inspired me to create a Beginner’s Sewing Board to house my resources. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for this. I’ve only just decided to learn how to sew (a sewing machine is my birthday present this year) so I’m basically clueless. This class will be great help!
