We live in a fairly small home and I am always thinking about storage when I create, especially for the holidays. My four year old has an Easter basket big enough that she can sit in. With three kids now, that is not going to work! Instead, I found these adorable bunny ear bags, that can be flattened and folded. They just needed a bit of personalizing. I found gradient colored embroidery floss in pastels and decided to embroider names on the bags.
You will need:
- Bunny Bags (I found mine from Amazon)
- Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle (or one big enough to thread however many strands you want to use)
- Ink Pen
Using a very thin gel ink pen, I wrote out their names in cursive. If you want to make sure you write in a straight line, use a ruler or the edge of a piece of paper to guide you. Because the bags were made of burlap, I wanted to make the stitch as thick as possible. I used the entire 6 strands and did an outline stitch.
After completing them, I still felt like they were missing something. Lately, I have been admiring all of the floral embroidery as well as all of the different stitches I have yet to learn. Flowers seemed like the perfect thing for an Easter bag without being overpowering.
Chase’s flower looks almost like a spider mum, with a yellow center. I used a satin stitch and french knots (one of my favorites!).
For Caden’s daisies I found a new stitch called a lazy daisy stitch. 🙂
Here are the final products! I think my little bunnies will have a much easier time hunting for eggs and carrying these bags around. Happy Easter!
