How-to: Pillowcase Trick-or-Treat Tote

pillowcase tote
I’ve seen Trick-or-Treaters at my door with some creative ways to haul their treats. Recently, reusable grocery bags started to show up, which is better than plastic pumpkins but still, grocery bags are made with plastic too.

You will need:

  • Pillowcase
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors or Rotary Cutter/Mat
