From Kara Sanders of Me and Elna, check out this stylin’ Trick or Treat bag, sure to be a giant hit with your kiddos (and maybe make one for yourself!!)

KaraSandersKara grew up in a household full of creativity, music and laughter. Though she was the resident needle threader for her mother throughout her childhood, Kara didn’t begin to sew until 2008 when she went to a quilt festival and picked up Pat Sloan’s “I Can’t Believe I’m Sewing!”  Since then, she has been hooked! Kara loves designing and making handmade gifts for her family and friends and finds much encouragement and support from others in the online sewing community.
