I know what you are probably thinking – “why, oh why, are you showing us this cute project just two days before Easter!” I know, I know. But, if you have an hour to spare and have time to get the supplies you need, you can make this adorable little tote!
I actually found this idea on Pinterest and I have to give credit where credit is due. Here’s the website where you can find the original tutorial that I basically adapted.
I used a medium sized tote – perfect size for an egg hunt. I found them in packs of 3 at Joanne Fabric. I had an old fashioned calico print in my fabric stash and thought the contrasting ears would be interesting. The ears are no sew because I used fusible heat and bond to attach two pieces of fabric together. Then I used chalk to draw a bunny shaped ear onto that fabric (I didn’t make a pattern, but for your reference, the ear measures 13″L x 5.5″W at the top and tapers to a point). I cut out the ears with pinking shears. You wouldn’t have to cut the ears with pinking shears (the fabric won’t fray because of the heat and bond) – I just love a pinked edge! I did use my sewing machine to sew the ears to the tote, but you could hot glue them or hand sew them as well. I also cheated and didn’t make my own pom pom for the nose (just used one from my stash that was purchased in a pack at the craft store) and used my glue gun to attach it. I used tiny buttons and glued them in place with my glue gun as well. And, instead of embroidering the whiskers and mouth – I sketched them on lightly with chalk and then went over them with a fine point Sharpie. If you need more details or see close up views, remember to check the website above.
It really is simple. The ears took most of the time. If you didn’t want to bother with the ears – you could just go with a bunny face tote! Hippity – Hoppity – Easter’s On It’s Way!
Today’s Good Friday – I love bunnies, egg hunts, and daffodils – but let’s take time today to remember and be thankful for a Savior who gave His life for us!
