The Cat's Out of the Bag

What do you get when you mix a cute little Halloween print with some broadcloth, a sheet of felt, and a few letter buttons? A darling little Halloween bag, that's what! Perhaps it's more accurate to to title this post as "The Cat's on the Bag".

A few posts ago, i mentioned my To Do list for the remainder of the month. On that To Do was an adorable little bag like this one by a very talented Western WA sewer, who graciously posted her tutourial on her blog.

Here they are...join me in a photo-documented fashion show sporting Nona's new t'n't bag.

It can be worn cat-side out.

And when one's eyes tire of looking at the caution yellow, it can be inverted to show off all it's orangy goodness.

Parents and children alike will love to use this bag for more than just goodie collecting--i can hear the comments you'll get now from errands to the library, grocer, toy store....anywhere --with such a sporty sack. "Oh, look at that, Martha, isn't she so seasonally hip with her cute bag!"

Another handy way to use this bag,
just incase you still haven't found a costume in time to go out T'n'Ting:

You can wear it on your head!

Okay, okay, so that last part there was a little Charlie Brown-ie-ish, and yes, if a grown adult showed up on your door like this, you'd probably give them a rock. (Hey, this costume's 10X better than the one i heard about from the Deacon at our church last night--last year, he had a 12 year old show up on his doorstep on Halloween all decked out in a sweet looking suit and when he asked what the kid was supposed to be, he replied, "A hired assassin." Obviously the kid knocked on the wrong house for candy, eh?) Seriously though, catching the scene with CB donning his "wholy ghost" costume is really the only reason we adults still watch the It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown cartoon. :o)

Frankly, i'm amazed that the bags actually turned out, under my leadership. Let's just say i have a love/hate relationship with sewing for now. Someday, i hope to be more advanced and clever at the ol' machine sewing. Thanks to Allison of Cluck. Cluck. Sew. for making this sewing achievement possible with her easy-to-follow tutourial!
