Using a rotary cutter and pinking blade, or pinking shears, to cut 6” x 18” rectangle from gingham fabric.
Note: The pinked edges will help prevent fraying, which means the seams won’t require finishing.
Cut a fun applique from the bunny print fabric for bag front. Place the applique facedown and outline edges and inner area with Fabric Fuse Liquid Adhesive.
Fold the gingham rectangle in half, wrong sides together, and place the applique face-up on the top of the bag, 1” from the folded edge. Carefully press down on all sides of the applique to ensure it’s securely attached; let it dry flat for a few minutes.
Using a rotary cutter and pinking blade, or pinking shears, cut a ¾” x 20” strip from the striped fabric for the tie.
Once the applique is dry, fold the bag in half, right sides together, and pin both sides. Sew together with a 3/8” seam allowance, leaving the top edge open. Backstitch at the beginning and the end on each side to reinforce the stitching. Turn the bag right side out and gently poke out the corners. Press the bag with a hot iron to remove creases. Fill the bag as desired and tie it closed with the striped fabric strip.
