EASTER IS UPON US!
It's that time of year when my children get super excited and all the chocolate restrictions get thrown out the window! It's the time of year we celebrate new life...
I love the unique yet simple style of the tie up bag and went about drawing some ideas of my own…
a reliable, diamond faced bunny with tapered ears.
a cheeky, wide faced bunny with long rounded ears.
Each year, I try to add a little 'non chocolate' gift to the kiddies little package. I love anything unique and handmade and this year I went in search of a little project to help in the 'hunt'.
I came across a sweet tutorial from 'Stitched by Crystal' for some DIY Bunny Treat Bags with cute tie up ears... PERFECT!!
You can see Crystals original tutorial > here <
WARNING: These Bunny bags are addictive!
They are quick to whip up, use very little materials and you can be
as creative as you like… You won't want to stop at one!
FIRST… You will need to download the patterns.
YOU WILL NEED:
OPTIONAL (For face and ear detail):
LET'S GET STARTED!
(Add the ear detail to both of the LINING pieces if you are creating a FLOPSY bunny bag).
Stitch along the top edge (ears).
Do this by carefully snipping into the seam allowance close to the seam without cutting through your stitching.
where the lining joins to the outer body match on both the top and bottom pieces. Pin in place.
Make sure you tuck the ears in, out of the way as you sew.
Smooth out the seams and press with an iron.
Your Bunny Bag is now ready for hunting or filling with small treats!!
I'm looking forward to seeing your take on our Easter Hunt Bunny Bags!
