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!

    1. Are there a few ways to identify swingers? This is the million dollar question that always comes up in the swinging community.

      The general consensus among our swinger friends is that if there was a sign or symbol specific to them in the lifestyle, no one would wear it for fear of getting caught. We have friends who have tried using colorful lawn ornaments or exotic plants in an effort to send self-identifying smoke signals to others in the lifestyle
      https://florida-swingers.net.

      These little clues may serve as breadcrumbs for other lurking swingers, but they're usually not bold enough to accidentally reveal them to your friends and neighbors. While the swingers we know may not display a "swingers looking to party" banner in their backyard, that doesn't mean it's completely impossible to spot clues and signs that your neighbors next door may be into the lifestyle. .

      Signs to help identify swingers
      These are some of the signs that we, along with our swinger friends, have spotted over the years. 1. They have grass gnomes in their patio. The cute, sweet and colorful grass gnomes have always been associated with the oscillating community.

      Our neighbors, who have no idea that we are swingers, often joke about others in our neighborhood who have gnomes and do not know their true meaning. I always joke that Martha and John could make it to 80, just in case!

      Come to think of it, my grandmother had lawn gnomes all over her garden. Maybe this waving thing is hereditary? 2. They wear curious jewelry. We've heard for years that a black ring on a man's right hand is a way to identify other swingers. Or that a woman wearing an anklet on her right ankle is a sign that a couple is out and about and open to meeting other swingers. While these may be identifying clues, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't rely on these clues alone or try to break the ice by asking "...so I see your ring/anklet, are you a swinger?"

      We recently learned that there is an international symbol for swingers. Her website has jewelry, clothing, temporary tattoos, and accessories that aim to attract and identify like-minded people around the world. While we may use something like this when out of town or traveling, we certainly wouldn't use it locally for fear of getting caught easily.

      3. They have a hot tub.
      Having a hot tub in your backyard has always been associated with being a member of the swinger community. While I don't necessarily think that's a safe way to say it, it is definitely a sign.

      It's true we have a hot tub and so do many of our lifestyle friends.

      Ours was bought before we entered the lifestyle, but perhaps subconsciously we knew we had to swing? 4. They seem to get hotter with age. The swingers we know are aging like fine wine.

      When you look back on your years of dating, do you remember everything you've done to impress your dates? Those of us in the lifestyle are still making that kind of effort.

      While most people our age skip the gym, letting waxing fall off their priority list and showering once a week, we still keep things tight from head to toe. When you are part of the swinger lifestyle, it is important to take care of your health and appearance. My husband and I look better now in our late 30s than we did when we were 25. Other signs and symbols of swingers
      We've heard of various other symbols and signs used over the years, but we've been unable to confirm that any of them are accurate.

      Some other signs circulating the web include pampas grass in the front yard, a pineapple knocker, pink flamingos in the yard, women with rings on their toes, and yin-yang tattoos of couples. Most women literally can't afford a relationship right now
      The risks are too high, the payoff is too low, and if you're the breadwinner, you might not even have a real partner.

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
