Mini Autumn Treat Bags


I love making little things, which is why you'll find a lot of projects labeled "mini," "tiny," and even "itsy-bitsy" on my blog. This week, as Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I'm sharing a collection of small fall-themed bags that can you can use as part of your table decor. You can tuck some wrapped candy or another treat inside each bag as a thoughtful gift for your guests.



Each felt bag is just 3 inches square and features an applique of a familiar autumn motif--a pumpkin, an apple, an Aspen leaf, and an oak leaf. I used simple embroidery stitches to give the designs a bit of detail and added orange rickrack hanging loops.

These mini treat bags were featured in the Fall 2015 issue of Craft Ideas magazine. Click here to link to the instructions and patterns on the Craft Ideas website.
