Miffy Easter bags

I'd seen a similar idea on Pinterest and devised a way to combine our much loved Miffy with these Easter bags.
Our chocolate filled Miffy bags
I know of a couple of Easter monkeys who would appreciate these bags and decided to get sewing.

Step 1: Draw Miffy's face onto some white fabric. Then leave approx 1cm around the face and cut around the outline. (Double the fabric and pin to have 2 identical pieces)
Step 2: Using embroidery silks, sew the eyes and infamous Miffy nose onto the fabric for a cleaner finish.
Step 3: Sew the 2 pieces together by sewing the outline of the face only (not the ears). Use a running stitch for a neat finish on both sides.
Step 4: Once you have sewn around the face outline, you can sew the ears separately. Do not sew them to the back piece of fabric. Then fill with your favourite Easter treat and tie with ribbon around Miffy's ears to keep the treats safely inside.
Here's our finished Easter bag. You could also use them as perfect party bags.

  1. Hey There!

    We are having a Linky Party here and are looking for Easter projects. I found your bunny bag on craftgawker and I think it is so cute! We are choosing 3 of our favorite projects, and those chosen will get $5 in Blitsy credits. Hopefully we see you at our party! :)
