This is a quick and easy project, especially when you use the template I’ve created and am sharing here. AND, along with this cute little felt bunny pouch, some blogging friends of mine are also getting in on the action–they came up with 17 more wonderful Easter crafts. Stay tuned all the way to the bottom of this post for pictures and links to all those great project!
But, first off, let’s make some adorable felt bunny pouches!

As a first step, print out the template. Then, using clear tape, cute out your felt pieces. To get a super accurate cut, tape the paper pattern directly to the felt and cut around it.
Once all the pieces are cut, it’s time to assemble. Grab your needle and threads!
First off, add the ear details to the “Basic Shape of Pouch” piece with a running stitch. Then, place the “inside pocket” piece on top of the “Basic Shape of Pouch Piece and blanket stitch around 3 sides, leaving the top open.
Next, grab the face piece.
Stitch on the eyes, nose and teeth pieces, adding whiskers and a mouth. With all of the embellishments done, it’s time to get this thing looking like a pouch!
First up, you need to put on the button. This is a hidden closure, so it’s important to do these steps in order.
Stitch the button onto the back piece. Then, lay the face piece over it and cut a small hole where the button falls. Then, unbutton the two pieces and stitch the bow tie piece down so that it covers the button hole, but make sure to only stitch on 3 sides of the bow tie so that you can still get to the button! I used a running stitch for this step as well.
As a last step, place the face piece of the back piece and stitch along the top. This will create a flap that will cover the inside pocket.
Super cute, right? Since I don’t plan on putting a lot of candy in my little one’s Easter baskets this year, I thought these pouches would be a fun and crafty addition.
