custom trick or treat bags {giveaway}

A while ago we had a fun guest tutorial series from one of my favorite bloggers, Vanessa at Lella Boutique, for a zig zag quilt. Remember that? It was one of the best tutorials for the zig zag pattern that I'd seen! Some of you noticed that we recently removed the posts from our site as Vanessa has made the pattern available for purchase. (Find it here on Pattern Spot!) She felt badly to have inconvenienced any readers who had bookmarked the pattern to make it later, so she is offering a fabulous giveaway to our readers to apologize! Isn't that sweet?

It's especially "sweet" because this giveaway is for Vanessa's newest pattern--Trick or Treat Bags. One reader will receive custom trick or treat bags for their kids (up to 4 bags), and 5 more readers will receive a free copy of the trick-or-treat pattern to make their own! Just in time for Halloween--that's no trick! Here are the choices (fabrics used may not be exactly the same, but similar):

Leave us a comment about which trick-or-treat bag you love most and you'll be entered to win! Giveaway ends Tuesday, October 11 at 11:59pm. We'll post our 6 winners next Wednesday!

And if you're in love with the fabric she used as the backdrop for these photos, find out what it is and check out the beautiful quilted fall table runner she made using it on her blog! She has a great tip for quilting straight lines, too.

I like the spider bag the best because it's the most creepy. But a close second is the raven? or whatever black bird that is with the chevron background.

I. LOVE. THE. RAVEN. Very cool. All of the bags have a wonderful mystique and I would love for my Son to win one (especially since I don't know how to sew more than buttons...), but with that said, well wishes to all who enter.

I love the Cami (frog and hat) bag. ALl are beautiful. My son is very into hawaween this year. (3 years)
We don't celebrate it (not popular in Australia) but he loves bats, ghosts and pirates so I think that it why he is excited by it.
I think these bags would be great library bags too.
