Make It Monday- Burlap Bunny Bags


I am loving the natural elements in a lot of spring decor this year.  It's a great alternative to the traditional pastel party.  These burlap bunny bags are very easy to make and are great bags for wrapping presents or party favors.  I recycled the image from the bunny banner I made with burlap last year (look here).

To make these 5x7 bags, you need 
6x14 piece of fabric
acrylic paint
bunny stencil (DOWNLOAD HERE- this stencil is formatted as a banner which you can just print a tie together)


Print the banner page on a full label sheet.  Cut the pink bunny out
Iron the burlap in half so that you are able to accurately place your stencil on the burlap.


Carefully rub down all edges of the stencil.  Open up the burlap.  Dab the bunny area with paint in the color of your choice.


Let dry. Once dry remove the label and fold in half inside out.  Stitch up each side.
Turn right side out and iron flat.  


Fill and attach a cute tag.  These would be great for lots of party themes using different stencils and of course, they can be made in any size.

I just want to take a moment to share- There were two horrific events in our small town on Friday!  Things that I pray my family never has to deal with directly.  Kiss your babies and friends and family because life is short and so unpredictable. 
XO,
Jenny
