Sew the bags and add the embroidery or iron on vinyl with this sewing tutorial video.

Special notes and tips:
For the embroidery file I used designs that were already built into my machine. I used a cute pumpkin and added the words trick or treat. The pumpkin had several more colors and details. I created just the face by skipping all the other colors when those steps came up on my machine. I love the simple pumpkin face and lettering.
Sewing the actual bags is the easiest part of this project. If you wanted to keep it super simple or have a ton to sew you could just sew the bags from fun fabric and skip all the embellishments.
I love that the ScanNCut DX can cut any design. You can find a Jack O Lantern face online or draw one, then scan it into the machine to cut. Import the design into Canvas Workspace to edit and resize. Cut as many as you want from Iron on Vinyl.
Both the embroidered trick or treat bags and the ones with vinyl are adorable. I’ve created these two options in case you don’t have both machines, you can choose the option that works best for you. I can’t wait to fill these with goodies and pass out to my kids and their friends when Halloween comes.
