Make These Easy No-Sew Personalized Halloween Trick Or Treat Bags With This Simple Trick!One of my first benchmarks of parenting is approaching y’all! This year I am going to finally reap the benefits of having a little one old enough to trick or treat, & you know what that means….. Halloween candy! I mean I have to take some of it off his hands, that much candy is no good for anyone!

This year I really want to make it special for him & make homemade family Halloween costumes & personalized Halloween treat bags. There is only one problem… I can’t sew. I have tried to learn countless times but I am hopeless yall. So I needed to come up with a way to make this happen without spending a bunch of money & without sewing anything.

Choose A Design


First, choose a design for your Halloween tote. You can freehand an image if that is your talent, it’s not mine so I went to the Cricut machine. This is 100% my favorite craft tool. You can find tons of free Halloween bag patterns & images!

Cut Out Image


This sweet little pumpkin SVG file is perfect because I want to add Eli’s name to it too! You could also just free hand an image on construction paper

Cut Fabric Square


After my pumpkin & letters were cut out I laid them out on my fabric to get an idea of how much I would need to cut. Cut out a square of fabric & the same size square of Heat N Bond.

Apply Heat N Bond


Heat N Bond is where the magic happens! Iron on your square of fabric (wrong side down) onto the bumpy, shiny side of the Heat N Bond. Only use dry heat

Tracing The Image To Heat N Bond


Once the two are bonded, let it cool & flip it over to the paper side. Now trace your image directly onto the Heat N Bond paper side.

After Tracing


This is how it should look after its traced

Cut Out The Image


Now that the image is traced use scissors to carefully cut it out. 



BIG TIP: APPARENTLY IF YOU HAVE CRICUT YOU CAN BUY A FABRIC BLADE & IT WILL DO THIS PART FOR YOU! I ORDERED ONE IMMEDIATELY SO I CAN MAKE MY NIECE & NEPHEW A MATCHING PERSONALIZED TRICK OR TREAT BAG!

Iron Bag


 My bag was a little wrinkly so I did iron it before I set the image on top of it.

Place Image On Bag


After the image is cut out, peel back the paper part of the Heat N Bond & place it on the cloth Halloween treat bag.

Iron On Image


Once you like where its placed, iron it down. 

Adding The Personalization


You could totally stop there because that little pumpkin is adorable but I really think a personalized Halloween bag is extra special! So I followed the same steps above to add his name onto the pumpkin.


While I was cutting out the letters to his name I had two thoughts: 1. I am buying that fabric blade asap 2. I am so thankful we gave him a three-letter name! Just kidding, it really wasn’t bad it took me maybe 5 minutes for the whole name process.

Finished Bag


How cute is this bag y’all?! I can just see him waddling around with it now. Plus this bag will last a really long time, the Heat N Bond has a super strong hold & can be washed!

Matching Pumpkin Shirt & Bag


I mean I am pretty darn proud of this Halloween treat bag & matching pumpkin shirt turned out yall, especially since I didn’t have to sew a thing!

Now I definitely feel confident enough to make some homemade family Halloween costumes. Have yall ever made your own DIY Halloween costumes?
