Which Witch Block?

Earlier in the week I made a little 4.5-inch witch block. I had to decide what to do with it. I am very comfortable turning little blocks into stars, so that was my first attempt.

I didn't like it a bit. In fact I decided that I didn't like the witch either (hated her purple dress). So I made a second witch block. I liked her much better. I spent a little time trying to design a block around the new witch. Finally I decided on this block. I wanted to frame her in a dark purple, so I marked those with X's and started sewing. After much consideration, I decided to use three different purple fabrics.
At this point I thought I might be lazy and just leave the bottom fabric as full triangles. After a bit more thought, I went back to my original plan and sewed 19 little triangles atop the dark purple to make a straight zig zag line all around.
I am really happy with the outcome.
This block finished at 13.5 inches. If I had a child I would turn this into a trick-or-treat bag. Wouldn't it be cute with the word "Trick" on the top and "Treat" on the bottom in green letters?

I have no children so I am not yet sure what I will do with it. I will need to make more blocks and I am not sure if I have enough of the same fabrics. When I figure out what to do, I will add a finished pic to the bottom of this post.

So cute! You are right it would make a cute bag. Maybe a small wallhanging? I am sure you will come up with a great idea. You always have such creative ideas!
