It’s that time of year again when people start gearing up for all the autumn / winter traditions and celebrations that now lie ahead. The first of which being Halloween. And whilst usual trick or treating practices may be suspended due to these COVID-crazy times we are currently living through, its quite possible your neighbourhood, like ours, has found a work-around so that children can still enjoy getting involved. So this year we will be spotting pumpkin pictures posted in windows by local residents, and each ‘spot’ will be rewarded with a sweet. Hence we will be needing a fit-for-purpose trick or treat bag to collect the goodies. Read on to discover 10 lovely and diverse free patterns to inspire you to make something super unique this year.
