You know what, I think candy corn is adorable, I really do, but, man, do I hate eating candy corn. I know! Crazy, right? People love candy corn, can’t get enough of it. Not me, though. Nope! Ew. However, I do love to make candy corn items.
Last year I made a chevron candy corn necklace, which I can’t wait to wear this year, and a couple rings (bow and regular). Even earlier  I made adorable stud earrings. So, because I’m rather fond of how cute candy corn is I decided to make another candy corn item this year and I wanted to go with a bag. I didn’t want to go with a boring ol’ bag, though, so I added a cupcake to the front. I’m thinkin’ I might add a couple candy corn appliques to the sides. They’re simple triangles with stripes, wouldn’t take long at all. Just haven’t decided on that.
This pattern is super easy to customize. I hope you do something fun with it! This is going to be my candy bag for trick-or-treaters this year. I don’t get a lot of them, so a small bag will sufficient.

Fasten off. If you leave long tails on each color you can use them to secure the applique to the bag.

Optional:
I love sprinkles and little toppers on cupcakes when I eat them, or look at them, so I do that when I made cupcakes in yarn. It’s as simple as getting a couple colors of puffy paint, here I used orange and black (traditional Halloween colors) and then I pulled out one of my bat buttons to top off the cupcake. You can do whatever you’d like on your cupcake! 😀

You know, I bet if you increased the rows following row 35 you could make a nice deep trick-or-treat bag for kiddies, no lost candy there. 😀
I hope you like this pattern and look forward to my weekly patterns, as I do. I had fun designing it.
