Mr. and Mrs. Bunny Bag

Did you see my quick little bow pattern that I posted yesterday?  Curious what I used it for?  Here is your answer!  That bow doubles as a hair bow or a bow tie on this adorable and simple bunny bag.

This bag is a perfect surprise for Easter egg hunts or even as a cute little Easter purse!  Just imagine all of the kids running around stuffing their eggs into these bags on Easter.  How cute would that be?!

This bag is made with basic worsted weight acrylic, so if you have any kind of yarn stash lying around you probably have everything you need to make at least one of these bags.  Whip up one or several for your spring time festivities :)
