I'm back.... with a wee bunny pouch

Hello there. 
I've been on a long & bumpy journey since my last post, but I am hopeful that the path is smoothing out & a new & better normality is beginning to emerge. Thank you to all of you who have sent such lovely & messages & kept precious friendships going through instagram, pinterest & facebook. I really appreciate each one of you. Although I’ve been busy stitching lots of bits & pieces (which you can check out here & here) it’s lovely to be back. 
Easter is just around the corner, & I'm sure many of you will have special things planned with friends & family & hopefully these little bunnies will help you along your way…

Bunny Pouch Pattern

What you will need:
- 2 fat 1/8s fabric or 2 pieces of scrap fabric approx. 7” x 18”
- Approx. 38“narrow ribbon / cord (1/4 inch wide)
- Embroidery thread or buttons for the face
Finished pouch size (excluding the ears): 6½” x 7½” approx..

A wee edit:
Sorry, this pattern is no longer available as a free tutorial, as it will shortly be going into print. However, you can still download the pattern & templates through my etsy shop by clicking here.  

Well done! You now have a gorgeous bunny pouch.... ready to fill with lots of lovely Easter treats!

I hope you have enjoyed this post & am excited to see your versions of this wee cutie.
