Halloween Candy Corn Crochet Treat Bag

Date
Sep, 05, 2018

So, this year I decided I wanted to do something a little different.  Instead of buying a trick-or-treat bag for my toddler son.  I decided to crochet him one.

That’s how this Halloween candy corn crochet treat bag came to be.

You see, since he was born nearly 3 years ago, I decided to make him something different each Halloween.

The first year it was a pumpkin costume.  Unfortunately, I didn’t write down the pattern so I can’t share it with you. 🙁

Last year it was pumpkin booties.

Yep, pumpkin two years in a row.  So, this year, I decided no more pumpkin.  I wanted something a little different.

There now, that was super easy, right?

If you have a little ghoul or goblin hitting the streets in search of goodies this All Hallows Eve this is the perfect trick-or-treat bag for them to bring along!

Colorful, bright, lightweight, and it holds lots of yummy treats!

No little ghosts or mini-superheroes to make this for?  That’s okay!

Whip one up, toss in some colorful candy or goodie bags, and hang it on your door for a festive decoration!

Have a fun and safe Halloween.  🙂

    I was wondering if I could get some help with this pattern? Where it is joined, it is leaving a pretty good sized gap, is this just part of it or am I messing up? If I can get this figured out I will be making these for my children for halloween!

      Hi Mercedes,

      You should not have a large gap at the join. Can you send a picture of the project, particularly the join area to my email at [email protected] so I can help you figure out where things went amiss?

      Thanks,

      RaeLynn
