I made a Trick or Treat bag for my son's first Halloween. I know I started a lil early but I couldn't wait! I'm pretty new to sewing so any CC would be great. This is my second bag and first time with interfacing which worked out better than I thought. So, here it is... What do you think?

Love the print.. SOOO CUTE... Congrats with the interfacing.   When I use interfacing and want a realllly stiff bag I use it on both the innner and outer layer. When I want a soft bag with some thickness. I use fusable fleece interfacing. I love that for my kids bags.  I just use it on one side then when I sew I pin the heck out of the top to keep it from shifting.  Also on my handles I sew a big X on the straps to make it more durable for my rough one.  Now yours is not at that age yet but soon he will.  Can't wait to see many more from you.

thank you so much for the interfacing tips! i know nothing about it. i had thought about reinforcing the straps but thought eh, he's little. he won't have enough candy to tear it up anyway! lol.
