Bunny Treat Bags for Easter and More

Lazies, Look at these adorable Bunny Treat bags, just in time for Easter crafting. I made these cute, quick and easy bags last year for all the little ones in my life. I used a Moda Fabrics charm pack and some ribbon for the ties. Fill with favorite treats and you are ready to go!

I followed the Bunny Treat bag tutorial from SewCanShe.com blog here. I whipped up a half-dozen in a short afternoon. I filled them with loose candy and a few small things. The bag portion is about the size of your palm. The bags will stand at attention when filled.

This is a quick and easy project with lots of opportunities to personalize and embellish. Use plain fabric and add a nose and whiskers to the front. Add a pompom to the back for a cotton tail. Use theme fabric to make bags for other occasions, too.

Each bag uses four 5″ fabric square, one piece of ribbon approximately 16″ long.

I Cheated
I did, I confess. The project calls for making a button hole opening for the drawstring ribbon. Instead, I fused a 1/2″ x 1″ piece of my Sew Lazy Face It Soft interfacing behind where the button hole would go. Then I used my seam ripper and cut an opening 3/8″ where the button hole opening should be. I trust that the interfacing will hold up well enough for the bag’s purpose.

Tool Recommendation
I used my Point 2 Point Turner (video demo) from my Clover Press Perfect line for all the point turning and for pushing the seams out after turning the bags. A point turner will make the job go faster and have great results.

    If making the bunny bags a wee bit bigger, like using 7 inch squares instead of the 5 inch squares, the closeable sandwich bags will fit in them for jelly beans and the like so they don’t mess up the fabric and can be used over and over again….

    Rather than trace around the templates, make your templates out of freezer paper, Put your 2 pieces of fabric RST, press the templates on, and sew around the edges. Then press with warm iron to remove them. You can use the template many times, and saves time.

    What line of fabric did you use to make these? It’s so cute.

    Everything works just fine with the link and the pattern is downloaded for trying if I can find a few moments of sewing-time…
    Thank you for the great tips!

    Best wishes,
