Halloween - Featured Designer Challenge by Ute Thenert

It´s Halloween!
I looked at the dies I had and what I could use for a Halloween card...this is the result.
The background paper is embossed, the die cuts are all distressed and stained with Ranger Ink in different colors. The QuicKutz Pumpkin is embossed by hand. Again I layered all with foam pads in different thickness.

For Bag:  Cut two pieces of Canvas @ 11 ½” x 13”.  Place wrong sides of fabric out.  Sew three sides.  Invert bag.  Iron.  Fold down top ½”.  Iron.  Fold again another ½”.  Iron.  Sew.
For Handles:  Cut two pieces of Canvas @ 3” x 22”.  Fold in half long ways.  Iron.  Fold each half to inside center.  Iron.  Sew each edge long ways.   Fold each end ½” up.  Sew 3” in from outside edge of bag.  Repeat for second handle.
