    Don't be scared off by this airhead. Sewing the ghost into place before cutting away the insides of the handles makes it easy to align the handle arches.

Haunted Tree Bag

    This scene is haunted by details: Black thread gives the tree branches a rougher, more barklike appearance, and running stitches let the red and orange leaves flutter.

Candy Corn Goody Bag

    The ghouls, goblins, pirates, and princesses will be delighted to bring along a custom-made treat tote to collect their goodies on Halloween. A simple, low-cost canvas bag gets its one-of-a-kind treatment when you fuse contrasting ribbon around the upper edge of the handles. An appliqued candy corn fused atop a spiderweb fabric square finishes the look.

Spider Bag

    Cut an oval spider body from black felt and stitch it to the bag front before assembling the bag.

Goody-Bearing Gourds
