Happy Bat Trick Or Treat Bag & Pattern

I think I must finally admit…I Nana, am a basket hoarder. I mean, not to the point that we’re all tripping over them, and I haven’t found anyone buried beneath a pile of weaved basketry goodness. Yet…  But I do seem to be stockpiling for every occasion, every holiday, and any possible future need! Is this just me? I can hardly walk by ANY type of basket without basking (get it?) in the potential of it. Is there such a thing as too many baskets? I think not! My husband on the other hand…let’s just say he no longer sees the cuteness. His solution? He’s put me on a strict diet of “one thing in, one thing out.”  Oh, this is so hard!

Being that I can’t resist temptation, Me thinks me found a loophole! I saw this pattern for the Happy Bat trick or treat bag and the wheels immediately began to turn. I HAD to create it! I mean, look at it! And oh the possibilities with just this one pattern. Handle? No handle? And with a change of a couple colors, this bag can be crocheted into any theme for treats. Or a notions bag perhaps. Ok, so what’s the loophole? You’re going to love this: If I already have the yarn stash to create any option of this basket….I’m not bringing in anything new! Right? It makes perfect sense to me.

I see several new baskets coming my way. Hee, hee. I’m thinking a little ghost or mummy. Maybe a Thanksgiving turkey. I mean, Christmas is coming and who doesn’t need a Santa or Frosty the snowman basket? I certainly do!

Okay truth be told, even though I have this noose – I mean “rule” over my head, my hubby is very supportive of my crocheting and crafting.  🙂 He’s waiting very patiently on a winter cap and some sock slippers though so it’s time to get these baskets under way and start crocheting some winter survival gear. Who’s with me?
