I made this lined scarecrow treat pail from mostly flannel and wool fabrics. A 3-gallon coffee can fits inside. Although it went together relatively quickly considering the many pieces that are each machine-appliqued in place, the hand embroidered face with the straw tucked underneath the hat, and the buttons stitched onto the front of the overalls... it is too labor-intensive to make one for each of my five grandkids to collect their treats on Halloween. So I purchased some candy corn themed cellophane bags to pack some treats to send them in the mail.
I chose brown rice marshmallow treats and "Sun Drops" which are like M&Ms but without artificial coloring and more nutritious ingredients including dried cane juice, unsulphured molasses, whole rice solids, beta carotene color, beet juice color, and caramel color. Tucked into an unbleached waxpaper sandwch bag is a handful of sprouted whole almonds.
The treat bags are ready to be mailed along with some fun greeting cards and an orange outfit for one of my granddaughter's dolls... maybe for a costume so she can accompany her trick-or-treating on Halloween evening. My two youngest grandkids are just 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 months old so they are perfectly content with their mommy's milk... no treat bags for them this year.
