Bunny Pouch Necklace 2 1

Make your own Bunny Pouch Necklace with Trixi Symonds

Thinking about what mums could make with their kids this Easter I came up with this super easy to sew bunny pouch necklace. Little girls seem to love bags and pouches as well as necklaces so I guess that a bunny pouch that could be worn as a necklace seemed like the perfect combination…and it makes a great place to hide treasures and little chocolate Easter eggs.

And you don’t have to use it as a necklace…enlarge the template and make a bunny tote as well.

Of course no Easter celebration would be complete with out sewing a bunny softie, so here’s one you can try.



  • 12cm X 7cm white felt
  • 7cm X 7cm white felt
  • 7cm X 5cm pink felt
  • 1 meter length of ribbon
  • 2 small wiggly eyes
  • A thick needle to make holes
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Pin
  • Glue

What to do:

  1. Download and print out the templates.
  2. From the 12cm X 7cm white felt cut out the shape for the back of the pouch.
  3. From the 7cm X 7cm white felt cut out the shape for the front of the pouch.
  4. From the pink felt cut out the shapes for the inside of the ears and the shape for the nose.
  5. Pin and sew the front and back of the pouch together as shown above.
  6. Glue on the insides of the ears, the nose and wiggly eyes.
  7. Use a pencil or fine felt-tipped pen to draw on the mouth as shown above. It’s a good idea to practice the mouth on a scrap of white felt first and to check that your pencil works well on your felt or that your felt-tipped pen doesn’t bleed into the felt.
  8. Use a thick needle to make two holes between the bunny’s ears as shown above……and thread the ribbon through the holes and secure the ends with a knot.

To complete my pouch for Easter I’ve put a little chocolate egg inside…

…and that’s it.
