Silhouette Halloween Trick or Treat Tote Bags!
Today we are going to show you how to make a truly one-of-a kind silhouette trick or treat bag for your little one! I love that you will have a precious keepsake long past the holidays with this one!
Let’s get started…
Supplies Needed for Silhouette Bags…
- an 8.5 x 11 picture of your child looking straight on in front of a white background
- an 8.5 x 11 piece of Heat n’ Bond fusible paper
- an 8.5 x 11 piece of black fabric
- white canvas tote bag
- embellishments: ribbon, flowers, rhinestones, etc.
- iron, glue stick, and hot glue gun, and scissors
You will first need to iron the Heat n’ Bond to the black fabric according to the package directions. Then, you will use your glue stick to attach the photo to the top of the Heat n’ Bond. Once it dries, you will simply cut along the silhouette of the picture.
Now you will peel the paper and fusible paper off and you should have only the fabric layer. Flip it over and you have a beautiful silhouette. Keep in mind that if your child is looking in one direction for the photo, the final product will have them facing the opposite way!
Here is where the magic begins… take your plain tote bag and iron your silhouette on to the front . Now, add all of the embellishments your little heart desires! I hot glued the flower and ponytail ribbon! So easy and so fun!
I just love how it turned out!
Silhouettes are so classic and this one is something you can keep forever! This would also make for a fabulous no-sew pillow in the years to come! Nothing like a craft that can stand the test of time!
