SWEET & SMALL- trick or treat bags

TODAY WAS SUPER SPECIAL- the kids and I got love from both GRANDMAS. My mom spent the day with me and two of the three kids (oldest in school) and the mail man delivered a package from Grandma “Innie” Larsen.

PACKAGES ARE THE BEST! AREN’T THEY? I hate bills, and junk mail is so boring! cards and packages are an awesome treat to brighten your week. My MIL sends the BEST packages, they are always a super duper special delight. SHE IS UBBER TALENTED AND is the best seamstress I know. She truly needs a craft blog. SHE SENT some fun darling stuff (can’t wait to show you the Christmas goodie she sent me “SQUEAL” you all will freak over it, I did!) and some fun holiday rice krispie molds, and these adorable small trick or treat bags. She sewed and made them. These are not made by me. Take a look at My MIL Annette’s darling bags she made for my family.

 I don’t sew so all I can tell you is they measure approx. 5 inches left to right and approx. 6 inches top to bottom, not counting the underneaths. OF COURSE THE BURLAP ONES are my fav. ANYTHING WITH BURLAP!

 AND LETS not forget what they REALLY ARE- small TRICK OR TREAT BAGS- yum YUM yUmO!

the kids delved into theirs and then I hung them on my large long shelf over the fam. room window. Thank you INNIE we love you so so so much. We love all the love you put into your hand sewn crafts. XOXO
