Monster Treat Bags

EDITIMG_6701

Make scary monster heads with felt shapes and a little glue. Stuff the heads with fun gifts like crayons, candy, or small toys for the perfect Halloween treat!

Materials:

  • Felt in the colors of your choice
  • Marker
  • Tacky glue
  • Embroidery floss
  • Monster patterns (get the patterns here)

Cut Felt:

Cut out each pattern piece from the PDF download. Place your felt face down if it’s one-sided. Set each pattern piece on the felt color you want that facial feature to be, and trace around it with a marker. Cut out on the drawn lines.

Assemble the Monster:

  1. Place the front face piece on your work surface. Working from the bottom up, layer your face pieces and glue them in place. Let dry.
  2. Layer your back face piece and your front face piece together. Using embroidery floss and a running stitch, stitch the two head pieces together along the sides and the bottom to form a pouch. Knot to secure the thread, then hide the thread tails in the monster head.

Running stitch:

A simple stitch perfect for borders and outlines, this stitch resembles a dashed line. 

To make a running stitch, pull the needle up at A and insert it back into the fabric at B. Continue in the same manner, loading several stitches on the needle at a time. Leave about a stitch’s width between stitches.
