Fun Halloween Project Ideas
September 25, 2014 in Inspiration
Believe it or not (I’m trying to pretend like summer is still going strong…), Halloween is right around the corner, and there are so many fun and easy tutorials out there that are perfect for this time of year! Today, I’d like to share some spooktacular project ideas to help get you in the mood for some Halloween sewing.
A quick story first…
I have a 5-year-old niece, Lila. She’s seriously my best buddy, and I think she’s the coolest person in the world. Like most other kids her age, she’s OBSESSED with Frozen. When my sister asked Lila what she wanted to be for Halloween, she of course said “Elsa!” The conversation continued, and Lila followed up with, “I bet Auntie can make me an Elsa dress.” And then, my heart grew 20 sizes. She’s the sweetest, and I’m glad she has that much confidence in me. Needless to say, I know what I will be sewing this Halloween season 🙂
Anyway, here are some really fun and festive Halloween project ideas:

How adorable are these trick or treat bags? Your creative options are endless with this tutorial, so pick out some fun Halloween fabrics and get sewing!
Every year, Baby Lock puts together a Halloween e-book that features a variety of projects. You’ll find a few costume ideas, as well as home decor and quilting projects… there’s something for everyone! My personal favorite is the plush monster. I just think he’s too cute!
From Simple Simon & Co.
Remember when we participated in a blog tour earlier this month? Well, the ladies from Simple Simon & Co. participated too, and this was the project they contributed! They used the Hit-and-Miss Table Runner pattern from Quilt Column Quilts by Nancy Zieman. The great thing about this particular pattern is that the hexis are created with two halves and stitched in columns, therefore eliminating the dreaded y-seams!
From Stitched by Crystal
I stumbled across this tutorial on Pinterest, and I love it! I don’t know why, but it makes me giggle every time I see it….I think it’s because it kind of looks like the shark is eating the candy. This bag would be perfect for not only trick or treating, but a fun tote for the rest of the year as well.

I love this tutorial! It involves very basic sewing, and you may have some (or all) of the materials on-hand already. If not, most of the items needed can be found at your local craft store for less than you would pay for the pre-made costume. If you want to be Wonder Woman for Halloween, I highly recommend using this tutorial!
