It’s time to fill up those Easter Egg string baskets I made for the kiddos last year. Since I’m sure they will be covered in the chocolate bunny category, I wanted to give them another bunny filled with jelly beans. And the Easter bunny paper candy pouch idea was born.
I saw the concept of sewn candy pouches around Christmas time through a pin from Peppermint Plum. See, how cute at these?
I went with a light green thread to coordinate with Jack’s light green basket, but it does draw attention to the stitching! So OCD folks, beware.
I needed a final touch to top off my bunny and decided a little pom pom yarn tail was just the ticket. I used the fork technique to create my pom poms. You can find a good example of this technique here.
Just a little dab of hot glue to stick the tail and I was done! Love my adorable bunny and I’ve enjoyed eating the extra jelly beans that I just couldn’t fit in the bunny…..
