WHAT YOU NEED:
- Unbleached Osnaburg Fabric 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" (muslin fabric would also work)
- Rotary Cutter and Mat (Optional)
- Sewing Machine
- Fabric Paint or Fabric Markers - Pink and Black
- Piece of Cardboard
INSTRUCTIONS for the fabric bag bunny
STEP 1: CUTTING FABRIC
Lay the Osnaburg fabric or fabric you are using on a flat work surface and cut a square 8 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches.
STEP 2: SEWING
Fold the fabric with the right sides together. At the sewing machine, use a straight stitch to sew the side seam and bottom seam using a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Remember to backstitch at the beginning and end of each seam. Leave the top open.
STEP 3: CUTTING BUNNY EARS
Fold the unsewn side (the folded side) toward the seamed side. Align the fold right next to the stitching. Insert a pin to hold it in place. By lining the fold up with the seam, when making the bunny ears you will not be cutting into the backstitching at the top opening and the seam will not unravel.
At the center fold, measure down 1 1/2 inches and place a pin or mark with a fabric marker. With a scissor, cut from the side seam to the center fold mark.
Remove the pins, open the fabric and the bunny ears are complete.
STEP 4: TURN AND TRIM
Turn the fabric right side out and press it flat. You will notice the side seam allowance showing at the top of the bag. With scissors, carefully trim this away by cutting it on an angle with the ear being careful not to cut the side seam stitching.
STEP 2: DRAW THE FABRIC BAG BUNNY FACE
To ensure that the fabric marker or paint will not penetrate to the back of the bunny treat bag, place a piece of cardboard inside the fabric bag bunny.
With the pink and black fabric marker or paint, draw a bunny face on the fabric bag bunny. Be creative! Have fun creating the face.
The fabric bag bunny is finished and ready to fill with treats.
