You can make them in any Halloween shape you want. Bats, Pumpkins, Frankenstein, Monster or a Ghost. Today I am going to show you how to make a Bat.
Here is what you need:
1/2 yard Black Fabric
2 sheets black felt
Clear vinyl plastic
White & black vinyl
(I buy my vinyl from Vinyl Expressions. it is inexpensive and you can buy as much or as little as you would like. See the link on my side bar)
Cut your fabric the size you want your bag, I cut mine 12x24. Fold in half to make 12x12. M:ake the folded edge the top of your bag.
Cut your 4 wings. Take 2 wings and stitch around the outside edge of the wings. Layering 2 wings gives them a little strength. This will help them stick out better.
Slide the wings in between your fabric layer. Pin into place. Stitch down both sides and the bottom.
1. Cut your fabric for your handles. Cut a strip 5x45.
2. Fold 1 side in 1.5 inches and press.
4. Fold other side in 1/2 inch and press.
5. Fold the same edge as step 3 another 1.5 inches and press.
6. Stitch down the center. Along the folded edge.
Cut your handles the length you want them. Mine were about 13 inches each. Pin them to the top of your bag.
Stitch them into place.
Add your face. I purchase my vinyl at Expressions Vinyl . You can buy any size and color. To make your face you can use your vinyl cutter or freehand it. For this project I freehanded it. I used a few scraps I had. I cut large round white circles for the eyes. Then added 2 small black circles. With the scraps of white I made 2 small fangs and a grin. It took me about 5 minutes.
Here are a few others I made.
