I got this idea from a sweetheart of a lady a few years ago. It makes for a really cute treat bag and pretty easy to make if you have a sewing machine.
Look at the back of this bag - so cute!
So here is how you make it:
Take a piece of felt and fold it in half (pictured on left)
Cut out to look like picture on right. Cut out contrasting inner ear and nose. Machine stitch from bottom left of right ear, all the way around to bottom right of left ear leaving the space between the ears open.
Hot glue on inner ear pieces, nose and googlie eyes. Make sure the nose is a little more than half way down and that the eyes are close to it because the bag will be tied shut and needs space for the ribbon.
Here is a bag all stitched and the pieces glued on.
Fill the bag with goodies. Tie shut with ribbon.
There will be a little bit of fabric gathered in the front between the ears.
I just tuck that in to face the back - see pic below.
What a cutie!
This is such an adorable idea, Sue! I've never seen this kind of treat bag before, my kids would love it! The little tail is the perfect cute touch!ReplyDelete
So cute! I think I might make a few of these to hold the different kinds of candy in their Easter baskets!ReplyDelete

Thank you for this! I've yet to get my kids easter baskets (eek, only a week to go). I was thinking of making something. This would be so simple and I think I may do something like this instead of the traditional basket. Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
