It's been bunny central around here lately - making me more excited about Easter than I usually am. I wanted to make something quick and easy - something I could make a bunch of and give away at egg hunts this season. I was inspired by Holly's remake of the classic paratrooper dimestore toy (You haven't seen it? Well go check it out, for goodness's sake! It's fabulous!) and I decided to remake those carrot-shaped cellophane bags you find filled with candy at Easter. My version is made from fabric - thus hiding what kind of candy is inside. Is it M&Ms? Is it jellybeans? Oooh - the suspense! Plus it's reusable and feels so much nicer than the plastic bags. And - it's oh so easy. All you need are some scraps of fabric and a sewing machine - and this easy peasy tutorial. The link opens as a PDF. As with any PDF pattern, be sure your printer is set to print at 100% scale so it doesn't shrink the pattern.
