For years now, I've been making trick or treat bags for my girls to go along with their outfits. I really enjoy coming up with a fun design to compliment their costumes, and they turn out so great! They are a perfect size for their candy, and they get a lot of compliments on the whole ensemble.
Above are their last year's Mario Brothers bags, and below are the Harry Potter versions from two years ago.
I have to admit, Anna was tough. There wasn't a really obvious accessory that came to mind, but I think it turned out great. Above is the design on the front of her dress. I simply cut out all the little pieces from felt and sewed them down with coordinating thread.
Below are the things she gives to Kristoff and Sven for them to help her up the North Mountain. A bit of a stretch? ;)
Elsa needed an Ice Castle, and for the back I got the fancy swirly felt, and made a little cape and gloves flying away in the wind.
Olaf was a no brainer. SUMMER! Have you noticed that in the move, the ice in Olaf's cup is in the shape of him? I liked putting that on the bag.
And of course, bees will buzz, so I used little black pom-poms, glued a strip of yellow felt around them, and glued them to some wings which I had already sewn down in the middle (so the edges are free to flap!). The zig-zag stitch shows the bees buzzing around. And I used white thread to sew dandelion fuzz, just like the song.
Here are my pretty princesses in their costumes! Costco pulled through this year with some great Elsa and Anna costumes.
And of course, baby Olaf. I love it!
So, be sure to check out the easy bag tutorial, and embellish your own felt trick-or-treat bags. We've kept all of ours, and it is really fun to use them in the dress up box after Halloween.
