Spring is soon here and Easter not long after. Why not create this super easy Easter-themed DIY bunny bags for your kids, grandkids or even for yourself? This bag can be created in two ways, so don’t worry if you don’t have a die-cutting machine or if you don’t have colored vinyl laying around. See how I made it and make one for yourself!
- Large Canvas Tote Bag
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Heat Transfer Paper (for Light Fabric)
- and Printer
- This Colored Template (PDF)
Step 1. If you are using the heat transfer and die-cut method, first size your design in proportion to your bag. Cut and weed the negative parts of your design. It’s so easy to pick out the parts you don’t need with a hook tool or any similar pointed object – just make sure you use it safely and not in the vicinity of little ones!
Step 2. Alternatively, if you don’t have a die-cutting machine, it’s still easy to create this project! Just print the template on a piece of heat transfer paper for light fabrics. I sized them to fit the large canvas bag, but you can definitely size them down if you are wanting to make them onto little totes or drawstring bags.
Step 3. Once you have done either step, it’s time to press your design onto your canvas bag! Use a hot iron with no steam and firm pressure on all parts of your design for a successful transfer.
Once you have ironed all the areas, carefully peel of the transfer sheet or the paper backing (if you are using the heat transfer paper) and you are done!
These DIY bunny tote bags are an easy project to do and you can definitely make a few for your kids, grandkids or even for yourself! Use it as Easter bags to collect eggs for your children, gifts or whatnot! I like that this design is not only Easter-oriented but you can definitely use it year round.
