What do you need to make Easter bunny bag?

- 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″
- sewing machine
- matching thread (I used contrast to help you see the steps better)
- marker or chalk pen
- 2 x 18″ ribbon
- safety pin
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!
