I've seen some bunnies like this and thought I'd try my hand at making them from from felted sweater stash but craft felt would work just as well. Hand sewing would also work for this project. Those fabrics turn out a bit fuzzy so unwrapped treats should be in a small zipper baggie.


First trace 2 small circles on a piece of plastic with sharpie marker.


Place that on the wrong side of a piece of fabric and pin in place.


Machine sew along the inner circle then trim at the outer circle. *** notes on how to machine sew plastic below Smiley.


Turn the fabric over and very carefully trim away the fabric inside the sewn line to reveal the little window.



I used freezer paper for the shapes I wanted. Hold the fabric up the light to centre the shape and gently press in place with a hot, dry iron for only a second or 2. Take great care not to melt the plastic! Iron around the sides of the shape. You could also opt to draw directly onto the fabric and sew along that line, whatever works best for you.



The back will be 2 pieces that overlap about a half inch or so. Place front and back wrong sides together so the nice side of the fabric shows on both front and back.


Pin in place and sew around the edge of the freezer paper (or drawn line) taking care not to catch it under the needle.


Peel off the paper, trim very close to the stitched line and voila!
I'm afraid the egg ones are shaped more like avocados but considering what's inside I don't anticipate any complaints, ha ha.


I did a variety of shapes:


Loops could be attached to the tops of these to hang them up. They'd look cute on a tree or hidden in unexpected places for older kids to find on a treat hunt.


***I have a special slippy plastic presser foot for sewing vinyl but if you do not have such a thing a small piece of scotch tape on the bottom of a regular machine foot will work, the one labelled "magic" that's a bit hazy instead of completely clear. It will peel off if you remove it right after your project. I have found the tape gets a bit extra stuck when left for a long enough time. If the tape does not work for you, placing a small piece of tissue paper over the plastic will do it though you may find it difficult to see the traced circle. In that case draw the circle right on the tissue, sandwich everything and pin it in place and it should sew just fine.

These are so great! And I can imagine them becoming a treasured tradition. I'm glad you mentioned the craft felt option, because I have some felt stash to bust, a remnant of clear vinyl, and some ideas for Halloween! Pinning.

Ooh, Groovy! I am so looking forward to seeing what you make for October. Fun fun!

I'm going to figure out a woven fabric version too. That will be a bit more work I think, a good scrap-stash buster though Wink.

Glad you like it Smiley. One thing I didn't think to say is that the fold over part is best above the clear circle, that way you can't see an opening even if you stuff the shape with lots of treats, nothing will fall out either. You can add a wee bit of velcro or a snap to the opening if you want to make sure it's very secure. I didn't bother, they close up just fine as is. Maybe if they were bigger that would be a good thing to include.

I had actually considered wovens already, too. I think not so different than many of the throw pillow covers I've made, just smaller and instead of applique, it's window.

Very clever and I can see a lot of holiday treats being packaged this way!

I must be missing something, though...how do you get the treat inside? Is there a place open for it?  I think I am not understanding the fold over part...
