Step 1:

Picture of
For this project you will need: black felt, orange Halloween fabric measuring 11" X 9", and ribbon.

Find a pattern of a cat or ghost or what ever you would like to put on your goodie bag.  You are more than welcome to use the photo to the left and enlarge it to the size you would like for the goodie bag.  My cat pattern measures about 5"X4.5".

Cut out 1 cat from black felt. Pin the cat to the lower right front of the PRETTY SIDE of the orange fabric.

Zigzag stitch around the outer edge of the cat. 

Pin the upper edge of the bag 1/2" towards the wrong side.  Stitch.

This is what the upper edge will look like stitched.
