Tutorial: Bunny Treat Bags with Free Pattern

I wanted to make something fun for my kids Easter baskets this year, something they could use again and again every year.

When I was little we always had the traditional treat filled plastic eggs, but we also had a few different small treat containers that got pulled out every year.  The ones that stick out in my mind the most were these little bunnies and ducks that my grandmother crocheted.  They actually had a small hole in the back where you filled them with candy so it looked like they pooped jelly beans, which I thought was hilarious when I was a kid. I am sure Andrew would love a pooping bunny too, but unfortunately my crochet skills are a bit rusty so I couldn't make him one, instead I came up with these little bunnies.

Just fill 'em up with your favorite Easter treat and tie their little ears in a knot.

They are small so they are a great way to use up some scrap fabric you may have laying around.  

These little guys are quick to make so you probably won't be able to stop at just one.  I made six, three for each kid.

Then on Easter they can be tucked in their Easter basket, or hidden with the eggs.  

Want to make some bunny treat bags?  First download the pattern HERE.
(sorry about the white on white colors in this tutorial, I don't know what I was thinking...)

Cut out the pattern piece and use it to cut out 2 white pieces and 2 color pieces.

Using a water soluble pencil, transfer the dots for embroidering the face on one white piece and for adding a tail on the other white piece.

Use embroidery thread to make the face.  To make the eyes, push your needle up from the back of the fabric where you drew the dot for the eye.  Tie a knot in the thread an push your needle back trough the fabric on the dot.  Tie both ends of string off at the back.

To make the nose, make a stitch between the top 2 dots.  Bring your needle up through the fabric at the third dot and under the stitch you med.  Then push the needle back down through the fabric at the bottom and tie off at the back.  

Add a cotton tail on the back using a store bought pom pom or make your own with some yarn.

Next put one white piece and one color piece right sides together and sew along the ear.  Repeat with the other pieces.

Open the bottoms of each side and place the two sides together, lining up the white and color sides.  Sew around the edge leaving an opening in the bottom.  Be careful not to catch his little cotton tail or one of his ears in the seam!

Clip the tip of the ears and along the seam allowance in the curve.

Turn the bunny right side out through the hole in the bottom and then sew the hole shut.

Tuck the lining down inside.  

Fill him up and he is ready for Easter!

  27. Picking an outline is vital, however a few people probably won't give it a second thought. Truly duffel bags might be intense and can keep going for quite a long while, however a great many people become burnt out on them (the manner in which they look or their plan) and wind up not utilizing them any longer regardless of whether despite everything they can be utilized.Best rolling duffel bags
