Granny Square Bunny Bag
By Vickie Howell, for Caron

vickie_howell_caron.jpgI believe a gal should have a purse for every occasion, even if she isn’t quite old enough to need to carry one. With spring in the air and Easter on the horizon, every little lass needs a cute carry-all! Inspired by those marshmallow bunnies, the Peeps-a-Boo Bag uses simple granny squares to form a rabbit motif. It’s sweet and easy, and makes for the perfect egg-hunt companion. Switch out the pink for a brown or blue bunny, and make it for the lad in your life. Either way, your kiddo will hop for joy when she or he gets this tiny tote!

Materials
Vickie Howell for Caron Sheep(ish) (70% acrylic/30% wool; 167 yds/153 m) in colors:
(A) White(ish) — 2 balls, (B) Pink(ish) — 1 ball, (C) Brown(ish) — scraps
Size US H-8 (5mm) hook or size needed to obtain gauge
Tapestry needle
Fabric for lining (optional)
Sewing machine (optional)
Sewing needle and thread (optional)

Finished Size
9 1/2″ x 10″/24 cm x 25 cm

Gauge
1 square = 2 1/4″/57 cm

Directions

FRONT
Granny squares: (Make 15 with Color A, and 10 with Color B)

Ch 4; join with a sl st to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, (counts as a dc here and throughout), 2 dc in ring, [ch 3, 3 dc in ring] 3
times, ch 3; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-3.

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same ch as joining, sc in each dc, 3 sc in each ch-3 sp, and 3 sc in
each corner ch-3 sp around; join with a sl st in first sc. Tie off. –24 sts

HANDLES (Make 2)
With Color A, ch 38.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in every ch to end. Turn. –37 sts

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in next st and in every st to end. Tie off.

Rows 3-4: Join Color B; repeat Row 2. Tie off.

Finishing
Using yarn, tapestry needle and the photo as a guide seam granny squares together to
create bag front.

Front edging:
With RS facing, join Color A at top, right corner of bag front.

Row 1: Ch 3, dc evenly across top edge (you’ll have to use your own judgement for how many stitches you work, based on how your edges look after seaming). Flip piece over.

You’ll now switch to working in a round.

Row/Round 2: Ch 1, sc in every dc across top edge, *3sc in corner of piece, sc evenly down side (again, you’ll have to fudge the number here — just make sure you work evenly); repeat from * twice more, 3sc in last corner. Tie off.

Bunny face:
Using Color C and a tapestry needle, embroider eyes and a nose onto the bunny’s face.

Seam together bag, and sew on handles.

Weave in ends.

Lining: (optional)

Cut 2 pieces of fabric, measuring 1/4″/1 cm more around than your bag.

With RS facing and using a 1/4″/1 cm seam allowance, machine sew the sides and
bottom of fabric together. Without turning RS out, place lining in bag. Fold top of lining
over 1/4″/1 cm; hand sew to inside top edge of bag.
