DIY: Peek-A-Boo Bunny Bag

With spring in the air and Easter looming on the horizon, I decided to craft up something bunny-related. Those furry little creatures are just too adorable! I've thought about making a bunny bag for a while now, and while I have done so in the past (see this easy appliqued bunny bag tutorial here), this is different. How so? Cause it features a bunny peeking out of a canvas tote pocket! It's really easy to make if you already have a bag, but if not, it would still just take you under 2 hours to construct the bag and add the bunny embellishment. Sounds good? Read on!

  • Canvas tote
  • Copy Paper
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl 
  • Template (download at the end of the post)
  • Scissors or Silhouette Cutting Machine
  • Iron
  • Marker

Start with a canvas tote. I sewed one up with a pocket just for this purpose! If you don't have a canvas tote with a pocket, you might want to check out this post on how to make one, but cut up an extra piece that's a few inches shorter than your bag piece so you have a pocket piece. 

Start by sizing your template according to your bag dimensions and cutting up a mock piece on a piece of copy paper. I always like this technique as it shows me how the bag will look like once it is embellished without committing to the design. As  you can see in the above photo, the bunny's ears are way past the edge of the main bag, so I need to resize that still. NOTE: It would be cool to use felt and have the bunny ears go past the main bag's edge!

Once you have made a template of your desired size, cut it on HTV. It's actually a pretty easy template so you can cut it by hand as well! You will want to cut 2 pairs of paws.

Iron your bunny and the first pair of paws under the pocket, making sure the bunny goes a centimeter or two lower than the edge of the pocket. 

Now using the first pair of paws as a guide, stick down the second pair of paws on the front of the pocket, cut down the excess and iron it down. 

Use a marker (in your chosen HTV color) to mask the edges of the paws where you see the canvas color (as seen above). 

And there you have it! It's as easy as that. You can even embellish the front of the pocket with a name, a quote or anything you like! I kept mine simple like this as I wanted the bunny design to be the center of attention.
