INSTRUCTIONS :

STEP 1: CUTTING FABRIC

Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial - Cut FabricLay 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

Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial - SewnFold the fabric with 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

Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial - MeasureFold 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

Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial - EarsTurn 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.

With the pink and black fabric marker or paint, draw a bunny face on the bag.  Be creative!  Have fun creating the face.Bunny Treat Bags Tutorial - Finished BagsBunny Treat Bags Tutorial - Finished with Basket
