Embroidery...it's not just fabric anymore. These embroidered favor bags are made out of brown paper bags.
To make your own embroidered favor bags go grab some brown paper bags. In pencil, draw out a design you like centered on the front of the paper bag. Thread embroidery floss into a needle and knot the end. Start embroidering with the needle inside of the bag.
As I was embroidering the intricate spiderweb design, I grew weary...weary of all the detail and surprised at how time consuming it was. So...
The second bag I embroidered had a more simple spiderweb design. Inside of using small dashes to complete the intricate spiderweb, the simpler web took only 27 straight stitches and took less than 12 minutes.
The embroidered bags, though cute, were missing something...a spider.
Folded the top of the paper bag over. Punch 2 holes in the top of the bag. String orange ribbon through the holes. Tie the ribbon and then secure a spider ring to the bottom of one side of the ribbon.
or simple spiderweb...
these Halloween goodie bags definitely make a statement.
Brown paper packages tied up with ribbons and spiders. That's how that song goes, right?
