Materials

Two contrasting Fat Quarters, we've used Rose & Hubble's Bunnies & Toadstools in yellow (also available in grey) but we think they would look equally as fab in our new Spring 18 classic Peter Rabbit fabrics - you can get two bags from two Fat Quarters.

Matching Thread

Instructions

Cut from each Fat Quarter :

1  12" x 8" Panel (for the bag outer and lining)

2  2 1/2" x 7" Strips (for ear outer and linings)

Cut the ears into points

Sew each pair of ears together leaving the bottom open

Trim the triangle point to reduce bulk, turn and press

Fold the bag lining in half, pin and mark a turning gap approx 1" from the top for a couple of inches

Sew down each side of the bag lining (don't forget to leave the gap!)

Fold the bag outer in half and sew down each side

Without turning the bag or lining, 'box' the seams on each of the four corners, I marked mine at 1 1/2" if this is a new technique for you, you can find further detail here.  I didn't trim mine to add some stability of the bag

Turn the lining inside out so if you look down in it you can see the flaps at the bottom inside

Place the inner bag into the outer bag (which is still inside out)

Line up the seams and bag tops and insert the bunny ears at each side seam so they face outer to outer fabric with the ear point facing down into the bag
