How to Make DIY Easter Bunny Tote Bags: 4 Easy Steps
Step 1: Draw Your Bunny
First, sketch out the rabbit shape and size on paper. Once you’re happy with the design, cut it out and pin it to the center of your tote bag. Place some cardboard or cardstock inside the bag to help you keep your stitching and hot glue from going to the other side of the bag!
Step 2: Stitch Your Rabbit Design
Using your quilting needle and baker’s twine, make a running stitch around the paper cutout of your rabbit. Once you finish, knot the two ends of the thread together to secure it.
For a cleaner look, start and end the stitch on the inside of the bag.
Step 3: Create and Glue Your Cottontail
To create your bunny’s fluffy tail, make a tassel out of the baker’s twine. You can do this by creating loops of twine, and then tying off one end. Cut the other end that you didn’t tie, and you have your tassel!
From there, all you have to do is brush out the tassel to make a cottontail and secure it to the bag with hot glue.
Step 4: Stitch Your Grass
Now, use the pencil to lightly sketch out the grass on the bag. Make a running stitch following this pattern. Secure each end on the inside of the bag with a knot. Once you secure the stitch, you’re all done!
These DIY Easter Bunny Tote Bags are not only a fun and creative way to celebrate the season, but they also encourage adding a personal touch to Easter festivities. With endless customization options, these adorable tote bags truly encapsulate the essence of springtime renewal and joy.
