How to make a Doll's Halloween Treat Bag from Duct Tape
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post on how to make a Halloween treat bag from duct tape. It was so easy and so much fun that I decided to make a matching bag for The Pea's American Girl dolls. This miniature version looks just like its full-sized counterpart, and it's even easier to make. Here's how:
For the main (front/back/bottom) panel
2 strips of patterned duct tape, 2" wide x 10" long
2 strips of black duct tape, 2"wide x 10" long
For the side panels
2 strips of patterned duct tape, 2" wide x 4" long
2 strips of black duct tape, 2" wide x 4" long
For the side piping
2 strips of orange duct tape, 1" wide x 12" long
For the top piping
1 strip of orange duct tape, 1" wide x 12" long
For the handles
2 strips of orange duct tape, 1" wide x 6" long
Measure and cut your strips a bit longer than indicated (i.e. for the sides, cut your duct tape strips to about 4.25" instead of 4" long), so you can trim them neatly.
To make the side panels, take 1 black 2"x4" strip and 1 patterned 2"x4" strip and stick them together, back to back. Repeat for the second side panel.
Fold the main panel over in half so that the black sides are on the inside of the bag and the patterned side is on the outside of the bag. Line up the edges and tape them down with the piping.
Here are McKenna (in the ballerina costume) and Mia (in the cheerleader costume), all set to load their treat bags with goodies.
And here's Marie-Grace, posing with her treat bag in her very own pumpkin patch.
