Challenge #61: Witch's Brew (Halloween Party - Part 1)

Happy October All. Can you believe it is October already! I love this time of year. We are having a Halloween challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate. I know a lot of you are creating some fun things for those Halloween party you will be hosting or going to. I hope you come and link them up. For Challenge #61, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a HALLOWEEN PARTY or CELEBRATION!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL about WITCHES, GHOSTS, PUMPKINS and MORE  with your table decorations, party banners, pennants,yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!
For this challenge, I created  this Bat Wine Bottle Gift Bags. This will be given to my friend who is hosting a Halloween party. I made this out of black craft felt and black glitter stiffened felt . I cut two black 7 inch by 12 inch piece of felt and sewn the sides together. I cut one black 5 1/2 inch circle and sewn to create bottom of wine bag. The seams  on side and bottom are sewn at 1/4 inches. Turn wine bag on right side out. I folded top of bag over about a 1/2 inch and sewn around to front.  I put a piece of ribbon in the sewn part to create a tie for bag. The bat ears  are  triangles and eyes are circles I cut them out  with  scissors. I glued the eyes, ears and wing on bag.  I used stiffened black glitter felt for the bat wings. The bat wing template is  HERE.
