What do you need to make Easter bunny bag?

  • 2 pieces of fabric  (main fabric) for the outer bag of 6″x 8″ (woven cotton works best; similar here)
  • 2 pieces of fabric for the lining pieces, of 6″x 8″ (contrasting fabric is recommended; similar here)
  • 4 pieces of fabric for ears 2.5″ x 4.5″
  • ear stencil (just draw one)
  • lightweight interfacing 2.5″ x 9″
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • matching thread (I used contrast to help you see the steps better)
  • marker or chalk pen
  • pins
  • 2 x 18″ ribbon
  • safety pin

Directions

How to make bunny drawstring bags?

To make the bag

  • To make the main bag, place outer fabric pieces right side together (RST)
  • Mark 2″ down from top corner, on the long edge of both sides of the outer pieces.
  • Place a pin where you made the mark then pin the fabrics all around the rectangle pieces, between those 2 pins (sides and bottom).
  • Sew down the pinned area with 1/4″ seam allowance.
  • Repeat these steps for the bag pieces for the lining but leave a gap in the bottom to turn the bag right side out (RSO) later on.
  • Box the corners if you wish or just leave the corners flat. I did both. If you decide to box the corners, follow the method here or here.
  • Fold the flaps and place the outer bag and lining “face to face”.
  • Match the top flaps RST, pinning at the sides.
  • Sew around both flaps, sides and top. Backstitch at start and finish. Take care not to sew into the existing seam.
  • Turn bag RSO through the gap in the lining, fold the fabric at the gap inside and do an edgestitch then press the bag.
  • Push the lining inside the outer bag.

To make the ears

  • Make the ear pieces. Using the ears template, draw an ear onto the wrong sides of the ear fabrics.
  • Iron the interfacing onto the wrong sides of 2 ear fabrics.
  • Place one ear with interfacing and one ear without interfacing, RST and sew down the template, leaving the bottom open.
  • Trim off the excess fabric of the raw edges of the ears and turn ears RSO through the bottom. Then press flat.

Assemble the bunny bag

  • Arrange the ears on the bag. Fold one flap towards you and place ears on the remaining flap, in the middle. Pin and sew down.
  • Flip ears up, pin and sew down the top of the flap, backstitching start and finish.
  • Fold the other flap towards the inside of the bag and sew 2 similar lines as above (no ears for this flap though)
  • Take 1 ribbon and attach a safety pin to one end. Pass through both channels made in the flaps until it comes out the same side where you started. Knot ribbon ends together.
  • Repeat with the other ribbon but starting from the opposite side.
  • Now just pull the ribbons to close your bunny bag and you’re done!

And there you have it, a super cute bunny treat bag pattern! I hope you have fun with this little bunny bag! If you make one, don’t forget to let me know in the comments below.

  1. I have just paid for a pdf copy of this but there are no bunny ears template. Please help.

    1. This file is the tutorial converted to PDF which doesn’t have a ear template included.

  2. This is adorable! I love homemade projects like this. I would love to make this for my kids, and even my older daughter might be able to make this with me.

  7. Elizabeth Neas says:

    These are absolutely adorable bunny bags. I love that you give the tutorial with your post. You are so sweet. I also love how springy they look, not only perfect for Easter but for those that maybe not celebrate Easter- for just Spring as well. Thank you!

  13. Betty Curry says:

    I wish all of your free patterns had a way to Print the patterns out. I live in the country and having not the greatest internet, we can’t stay online long periods at a time because of using to much data.

    1. I’m working on converting most popular tutorials to a PDF format, Betty. But since I have no help and this blog is a 10 hr/a day job, it’s a slow process. Thanks for stopping by and next time you’re here, I hope the tutorial you’re looking for is already converted to PDF!

  14. Juliana Carney says:

    Hi, is there a template for the ears? Love this pattern & video tutorial, but not quite sure how big to make the ears. Thank you

    1. Hi, Juliana! There’s no template for the ears but I gave the measurements for the fabric needed for ears, that should give an idea on the approximate size. It’s in the materials section.

  15. Olga Roth says:

    This is the neatest bunny bag..as in nicely done. Being a visual person, I did find, however, the video was a little too fast for me to follow, even with the printed instructions. Pausing the video at critical steps just didn’t work for me.
    Thank you…they are really cute.

  16. Rachael Dickson says:

    I had so much fun going through my scrap box and made 2 cute bags with what I could find…the video was helpful as it showed the steps clearly and was easy to follow. Thanks for such a cute project.

    1. Hi Rachel. Thanks so much for letting me know that you enjoyed my idea & it worked well for you! Have a wonderful day & stay safe! xoxo

  17. Margaret S Sharp says:

    1. Hi, Margaret! There’s no specific pattern, all the details for making the bags are in the tutorial.

  18. Sharon Schroeter says:

    Do you have a pattern for the bag & the ears? These are so cute! The video doesn’t play, only the music
    Thanks,
    Sharon

    1. Hi Sharon. Thanks so much, I am absolutely smitten with these cuties! I didn’t make a pattern since drawing ears was so easy, almost like drawing leaves. Also the bag uses square fabrics so I didn’t see a point in making a pattern. Not sure why the video is not playing for you, it may be your browser settings or the internet connection as it works just fine on my computer and phone.
