Sewing tutorial: Bunny Sachet for EasterBunny sachets on the carrot boat
Bunny sachets on the carrot boat

According to Lunar Calendar and Chinese astrology, the world has entered into Rabbit year starting from this spring, that’s today, February 4th, 2011. As a memento of the year, I made some bunny sachets. I filled them with silica gel (in bead form) and turn them into desiccant bags for my metal notions stored in the glass bottles. The silica bead will help in controlling the humidity in the glass bottle, hence to protect the metal from oxidation and degradation.

This project is ideal if you have a lot of fabric scraps that you want to de-stash.  It is quick and easy to sew, I am able to complete a dozen of them within hours including taking photos for all the steps.

This bunny sachet pattern is not confined only as a desiccant bag, you can fill it with other ingredients and turn it into personal amenity, for example:
1. Scented sachet if filled with Potpourri (great gift for this coming Valentines)
2. Sleep pillow if filled with dried chamomile & lavender flowers in a bigger bunny poly-fill (perfect as baby shower gift)
3. Heat bag if filled with rice or wheat and herbs which to be heated up in mirco-wave oven (for medical purpose)
4. Shoes freshener if filled with activated carbon or charcoal (as shown below, best use in summer)
Get the pattern and step-by-step instructions with photos after this jump:

Material:
1. Fabric or scraps (2¼” x 3″ – 2 pcs. for mini bunny, 4½ ” x 6″ – 2 pcs. for large bunny)
2. Sachet filling ingredient – silica bead, activated charcoal, or scented potpourri etc.
3. Ribbon, lace, yarn or cord
4. Fusible web (for large bunny)
5. Embroidery floss (for large bunny)Tools:
1. Sewing machine
2. Sewing kits
3. Iron
4. Printer & letter size paper
5. Pencil or fabric marker
6. Blunt point tweezers

How to sew a sachetCut the paper pattern and trace it on the wrong side of your chosen fabric.
Mark a minimum 1″ opening on the side seam.

Start from one of the opening markings, sew alone the sewing line and end at another opening marking.
bunny sachet Trim the seam allowance to 1/8″ for mini bunny, 3/8″ for large bunny.
Clip and notch at the curves on the seam.

Turning right side out Insert the blunt tweezers from the opening and grab one of the ear.
Pull the ear out through the opening.

making sachet Repeat the same to the other ear. Use the tweezers to adjust the seam and smooth the curvature.
 Turn the face and smooth all the curvatures. Press with warm iron to smooth crumples.
For large bunny, trace bunny’s face to the fusible web (paper side), cut out and iron the adhesive side to the wrong side of the face fabric. .
Peel off the paper from the fusible web. Embroidery the facial features.
Cut fabric. With adhesive side down, iron the face onto the large bunny.

Fill sachet Roll a piece of paper into cone, cut at the sharp point to make a funnel mouth. Insert the mouth into the opening. Fill the bunny with your chosen ingredient. For this instant, I filled it with silica beads.
You may omit the funnel if you are filling it with scented potpourri, use tweezers to fill it instead.

ladder stitch Close the opening by sewing with slip or ladder stitch.
long ear bunny Shake the bunny so that the ingredients fall to the bottom part..
Tie the ears together with sewing thread, adjust while you pull the thread to gather.

 Finally, tie your prefer ribbon or yarn to the thread.
~~Done~~
