Bunny Rabbit Candy Pouches tutorial
I love cute, little sewing projects that I can just sit down for a couple of hours, and have at it! So when I saw this ADORABLE Rabbit Candy Pouches tutorial on Pinterest, I had to give it a shot! :)
I’m so proud with how they turned out! They’re super adorable and actually hold a lot of candy. Hint…hint…there’s Reese’s Cups and Hershey Kisses inside! :)
I promise you that they’re SUPER easy and would be quite fun to do with older kids.
- white, thin fabric
- patterned fabric
- 3 different colors of thread
- bakers twine
The first thing you do is layer some fabric (I used a type of canvas) on top of each other so you have two layers. Then draw a very simple rabbit head, with ears. It doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect, you’ll be cutting inside the lines so the drawing will never show.
Then pin the two layers together and cut out (on the inside of your drawing).
Next, free hand cut two “ears” in a designed fabric. They’re just triangle shaped. All I did was fold the rabbit head in half and match up some fabric that would be about the right size. When you have the ears cut out, pin them in place on one of the layers (the top one).
Next, take the top layer (with the pinned ears) and use a pencil to draw two eyes and a nose/mouth. Then take some embroidery thread and sew on the eyes, nose, and mouth with a needle.
You’ll end up with something like this! :)
Then pin both layers together, and sew a border around the outside making sure you sew on the ears as well. However, DO NOT sew the space between the ears!! This is where you insert candy and remove candy.
After I sewed the border, I then trimmed up my bunny so the fabric didn’t look so uneven on the finished result (as shown below). You can also see that I’m ready to stuff the pouch with candy!
After the pouch has been stuffed, take some twine and tie a bow around the ears! This keeps the pouch closed so no candy falls out! :) You may have to adjust the ears, but that’s pretty much it! :)
See, I told you it was easy! :)
