Both the outer seersucker fabric for this bag and the chenille used on the ears and tail were found at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. I guess Lola is happy with my choice of chenille ;).

I was able to squeak out the lining from my last bit of Urban Zoologie that Ann Kelle was so kind to send me last year. I also used it for the lining of the free bunny backpack pattern I released last year, and I was excited to get to use it on another bag!

      Hi Shirley! The measurements to cut the straps are on the pattern pieces, but they need to be cut 4″x15″ – cut 2 from the main fabric and 2 from interfacing :).

  6. Very cute! How do you transfer the embroidery markings to the fabric?

  7. Thank you for this cute pattern, it´s really nice bunny bag for little girls :)
