This super-cute Halloween treat bag crochets up in a jiffy! Use a super-bulky weight yarn, or if you use a thinner yarn it will just come out smaller! Leave off the handle and it makes a fun planter cover or treat bowl.
I used a yarn from Red Heart called “Zoomy” which I’m pretty sure is discontinued now, but the last time I was at the store I saw several different super bulky yarns available now that would work great! Enjoy!

Using tails, attach eyeball securely to front of head three rows down from the top.
Attach mouth to the head six rows down from the top and slightly to the right of the eyeball.
Attach handles just inside the top of the head being sure that the face is centered between them.
Wrap bandages around entire head several times, attaching with short lengths of matching yarn as you go, being sure to leave eyeball and mouth uncovered.
Weave in all ends.
