Winning Halloween

When the request was made that I make the prizes for the big Halloween Party I knew I had to make it fun. This was a blast! These fun 1st place ribbons were fast and easy after making 8 I figured had the process down! This treat bag is so simple with a little pop of pompom at the top. I've shown you mine now show me yours! link your version in a comment!

1st Place Ribbon
2" strip of fabric for ruffle
1/8 yard netting
1/8 yard fabric for center
1/8 yard black canvas for back
1/8 yard fusible fleece
scrap of fleece or felt for #
3 - ribbons 17" long
Aleene's Fabric Fusion
Iron fusible fleece to wrong side of  "center" fabric. Cut center and back fabric with Sizzix Circles, Scallop #2. Cut circle out of 2 layers of netting 1/2" wider then scallop circle. Pin netting to back of front center scallop, hand pleat and pin ruffle around outer edge (imperfect pleats give more personality! just go with it). Fold ribbons in half and pin behind ruffled edge (space ribbons to show each layer of ribbon). Sew a around edge of scallop to secure ruffles and ribbon to center front. Adhere back scallop to ribbon with Aleene's Fabric Fusion, let dry. You may choose to add a pin back so the ribbon can be worn.

Treat Bags
2 - 9"x22" cotton fabric(1 outer, 1 lining)
3/4 yard pom pom trim 
ribbon ties
Fold fabric in half long wise and sew both sides, leave a 2 1/2" open on one side of lining. Sew pom pom trim to top edge of outer fabric with pom pom points towards bottom of sack. Turn sack outside right side out and pull lining over and pin at seams to line up. Sew along edge sewing lining to outer fabric (I followed the trim seam so I didn't loose any of my little pom pom puffs). Turn bag right side out through the opening in lining. Sew lining closed and add a seam around bag opening edge 1" from top of bag. Fill with treats and tie with a ribbon.
