Paisley Roots and StitchART combined forces to design this cute little Trick-or-Treat tote. My friend, Jeanine (of StitchART fame) designed the pumpkin free motion appliqué. There are several design options for the appliqué. I couldn’t find my machine’s quilting foot, so I opted not to do a face on my pumpkin. Other than that, I followed the directions and found that the pumpkin came together quite easily. I’ve always been a little terrified of machine appliqué, but this really was a piece of cake. The bag came together pretty quickly, despite numerous interruptions from my family. I love that it’s reversible. I can see myself making Valentine’s Day themed totes, Easter morning totes…one for every season! My daughter loves it, and so do I. Now to make the larger version for myself… It would make an irresistible shopping bag.
