If you are looking for a cute way to give out candy this Halloween, then you will definitely want to sew some of these Frankenstein candy bags! Made out of felt pieces, these hand-stitched pouches are perfect for Halloween party favors or giving candy to the neighborhood kids.
If you didn’t want to use a needle and thread, you could hot glue these pattern pieces together and get a similar result.
This Halloween DIY project uses felt scraps and small pattern pieces, so you can make several of these with a few pieces of felt.
These Halloween candy bags are great to make for selling at craft fairs, too!

How to Make a Frankenstein Candy Bag for Halloween
- Free Frankenstein Candy Bag Template
- Felt in various colors
- Glue, either hot glue or craft glue
- Thread and needle
Print out the pattern and cut out the felt pattern pieces.
Using one green front panel, fold back the top edge, then topstitch it into place.
The side showing the folded lip will now be the WRONG side of this piece and will be hidden inside, facing the back panel piece when you put all of the patterns together.
Attach the small orange patch to the front of the purple shirt with decorative stitching around the edges.
Attach the eyes and mouth to the front panel. It is fine to glue these on if you’d like. Otherwise, use thread in the same color of the eyes and mouth to sew them.
Sew some stitches above the eye using simple straight stitches. Note: If you are not sewing, then use a Sharpie to draw on stitches.
Lay the front panel piece onto the back panel. Keep in mind that you want the folded over piece to face the inside of the bag, not the outside.
Make sure the edges of the green pattern pieces line up. Sew along the sides in a big U shape.
On the pattern piece, there are two circles with a dotted line in between. This is where you sew. Keep the top open to form the pouch.
We used a blanket stitch for a decorative edging, but you can use whatever stitch you prefer.
Place the hair pattern piece on top of the back green panel. Sew (or glue it) only to the top edge, as seen in the dotted line on the pattern piece between the two stars.
You can hold the pattern pieces together with little clips if it helps you out.
Place the bottom edge of the purple shirt on top of the front panel underneath the face and attach with glue.
Next, glue the bolts to the head on the front of the face. Allow to dry.
