What do you call a line of rabbits hopping backwards? A receding hareline! Ha!
Seriously, though, aren’t these Easter Bunny Treat Bags adorable?! I made these with some of the Snuggle Flannel I picked up yesterday because I wanted to show you that we have some really cute patterns in stock right now. But I bet they’d be even cuter if I used some of the Easter fabric we have on sale. Hmmmm… another reason for a Joann shopping trip? Maaayyybbbeee….
These are ‘sew’ easy to make, too. I whipped up all 3 in about an hour. The next time it’ll probably be even faster now that I know what I’m doing.
I found this Easter Treat Bag tutorial at the Easy Peasy Creative blog. She also has a video you can watch so I’m embedding it below.
2 pieces of fabric for outer bag of 6″x 8″
2 pieces of fabric for lining of 6″x 8″
4 pieces of fabric for ears 2.5″ x 4.5″
2 pieces of lightweight interfacing for ears
I really liked making these little bags because it’s shows you there’s more than one way to make a drawstring bag. The way you form the casing on this is different than the way you form it on the Pretty Petal Dilly Bag.
Once you get the basic design down on these I can see how it would be really easy to make them bigger or smaller. The body is just a basic rectangle which you could size any way you want, and then just adjust the size of the ears accordingly.
Honestly, these were so quick and easy you could whip up a whole herd in an afternoon. Wouldn’t they make cute treats for your kids to pass out at school?
Donna Anderson 'works' at Joann Fabrics at 4600 W. Broad St. in Columbus, OH. Just look for the crazy old lady behind the cutting counter. As a kid, she ran with scissors and ate paste. She's since found safer, more creative ways to use her Fiskars and Mod Podge. Next time you're at the store, stop by the cutting counter and have a chat! (Just please don't ask her about lightbulbs!)
