How to make Monogrammed Bunny Bags:
Note: All seams are 1/4 inch
Cut four 7 inch by 9 inch rectangles, two from white oly-fun (lining) each from two additional colors.
Cut four ears using the pattern, two from white and two from another color of your choice.
Cut out two 1 inch by 5 inch rectangles for the ribbon channels from white oly-fun.
Center white ears on top of the larger ear cut out and stitch around the outside edge of the white. Fold the ear in half and stitch the dart closed. Repeat to create the second ear.
Place the ears onto the of the back bag pieces and baste in place. Cover with one of the lining pieces right sides together and stitch across the top edge. Turn right sides out and press.
With right sides together, stitch the bag front and lining pieces together along the top edges. Turn right sides out.
Press fusible web to the back of oly-fun and cut out desired monograms using the die cut machine and dies. Alternately you may hand cut monograms or other decorative shapes. Fuse to the bag front.
Center one of the drawstring channels on top of the bag front and top stitch along either side. Repeat to add the remaining ribbon channel to the bag back piece.
With right sides together, stitch the bag front and backs together along the sides and bottom edges.
Fold each of the corners together matching the bottom and side seams and draw a line 1 inch in from each of the corners. Stitch along these drawn lines. Turn the bag right side out.
Insert the ribbon through the channels, fill with goodies and tie a bow.
