Trick or Treating has never been sweeter! Creating a Batty Halloween Candy Bag is quick and easy with Oly*Fun from Fairfield World. The durable, weather-resistant and tear-proof Oly*Fun fabric is easy to cut and sew, which makes it the perfect base for this Batty companion for any costume on All Hallows Eve. Created in just about an hour with some help from my niece, she decided that Batty was a boy and his name is Nick!

Here's what you need to create an Oly*Fun Candy Bag:
- Oly*Fun™ Craft Pack Snow White and Jelly
- Scissors – Fiskars are my favorite!
- Permanent Marker – Black
- Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil – White (great for marking on all types of dark surfaces!)
- Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue
- Black Glitter
- Sewing Machine – my Singer is quick to thread and easy to use!
- White Sewing Thread
- Straight Pins
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Here's how to make a Candy Bag for Halloween:
Oly*Fun Craft Packs are 30″ wide and come folded in half, so I took advantage of that fold to create the bottom of the bag. Measure and cut a 15″ wide length of Jelly Oly*Fun, which will create a 15″ by 15″ square.
Fold the square in half and cut the corner from the original folded base, leaving part of the original folded base to become the bottom of the bag.
Cut two rectangles that are 2″ wide by 36″ long, then pin and sew the layers together.
Cut four rectangles 8″ wide by 15″ long, then cut out three scallops along the bottom and around the end of the bat wings.
Pin and sew two sets of layers together to create two bat wings.
Cut four squares 5″ by 5″ and then cut out triangles, then pin and sew two sets of layers together to create two bat ears.
Unfold bag base, then pin and sew ears to top edge.
Insert handle 2″ in from the top edge on either side and pin in place. Insert wings just under the handle edges, and pin in place.
Sew around the entire outside edge of the bag, leaving the top open, for candy, of course! See the red guidelines in the photo below.
Cut out features from two layers of Snow White Oly*Fun. For the eyes, we used mixing bowls to create the circles, one 5″ and one 4″, overlapping in the center. For the mouth, freehand a half circle and add two triangle fangs. Pin in place, sew layers together then hot glue onto the front of the bag.
Measure and cut a strip of Kiwi Oly*Fun 3″ wide and 36″ long, then tie in a bow. Because our Batty Halloween Candy Bag is a boy, named Nick, we attached the bow to the bottom center of the bag with hot glue. If your Batty Bag is a girl you can attach the bow to the top, near the ears.
