Bunny Bags (part 1)!

Now that we are into March, the focus turns to Easter!

With just over 3 weeks to go, there's still plenty of time to get in some fun Easter crafting (especially if the weather continues like this)!

Over the next week or two I'll be running a mini-series of tutorials on 'Easter makes' (as you can imagine, most of them involve chocolate in some way or another!).

But before I get to that, let me show you my Bunny Bags currently featuring in the March issue of Pretty Patches Magazine.

I love piecing more than applique, and so designed a patchwork bunny with hand embroidered details on the face.  I knew this bunny would become a bag, (perhaps for collecting eggs during an Easter egg hunt) but thought it was a little too big for a smaller child.  And so the mini bag was born!

The 'heads' are both worked to the same dimensions, despite the mini bunny looking bigger!
They are called 'Big Sis, Little Sis Bunny Bags' and I used my trusty Essex Linen for the main bags.

So if you need fun bags for collecting Easter eggs, or just love bunnies, then pick up a copy of Pretty Patches for the patterns for both bags.
