Do you have fond memories of your orange plastic pumpkin from childhood Halloweens? We didn't think so. But these reusable Scrappy Owl Treat Bags have a lot of heart, can be used year after year and are super cute.

The bags were created by Ellen of The Long Thread: a blog about handcrafted goods in an age of mass production who made them for her two daughters to use for trick-or-treating. Not only are they reusable, their construction includes lots of small fabric scraps that you might otherwise throw away.

So forget orange, go green this Halloween. Ellen's put together a great tutorial with ample photos here. She generously shares a tutorial or project idea every week as part of her Make it Mondays.

Thanks Ellen!
