Halloween is sneaking up on us! My kids are so excited for all the festivities this year. We decorated the house and the costumes are made. Now they are looking forward to trick-or-treating! I thought I would make something special for my crew and these little Crochet Frankenstein Candy Pouches are fun and functional! Pictured with candy but you could fill them with non-candy items as well. I found some fun little Halloween trinkets at the party store that I will include in their bags. PLUS you don’t have to make a Frankenstein. There is no limit on the types of embellishments you can add to this pouch!
