Supplies

Felt in various colours

Coordinating thread

Pinking shears (optional, but I really love the look of pinked edges on felt)

Sharpie marker 

2-inch white pom-poms

Hot glue gun

Buttons

To begin, cut out all of your pieces using the template provided. You will need 2 pant body pieces, 2 belt pieces and 4 strap pieces. For a decorative touch, use pinking shears to cut out some or all of the pieces.
Pin the belt pieces to the waist portion of the pant pieces; pin. Edgestitch around the belt pieces to attach them to the pant body pieces.
BUNNY TREAT BAGS - Step 1
Place the two pant body pieces together, right sides facing, aligning all raw edges. Stitch the pants together along the right and left curves (refer to the photos below) using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Fold the pants so that the seams you just sewed are aligned at the centre, making sure the lower edges of the pant legs are precisely aligned. Pin.
BUNNY TREAT BAGS - Step 2
Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, stitch the lower pant edge closed with a continuous line of stitching, as shown.
Use a Sharpie to draw lines 5/8″ from the bottom and side seams of each pant leg, as shown, so that the lines at each corner meet at a 90-degree angle. (Refer to the photos below.) Carefully trim away these squares, and then use a machine to stitch at the point in the seams where the cuts are made to prevent the stitching from coming loose.
BUNNY TREAT BAGS - Step 3
Pinch the inner corners of each set of notched squares together to align the side and lower pant seams. Pin and stitch along the cut edge with a 1/4″ seam. This will create a set of boxed corners on each pant leg.
BUNNY TREAT BAGS - Step 4
Pin the strap pieces in two sets of double layers; edgestitch around each set to secure them together.
BUNNY TREAT BAGS - Step 5
Affix the completed straps to the assembled pant body, as shown, with the strap edges extending about 3/4″ below the pant edges. Use either a needle and thread or hot glue to affix the straps to the pants. Embellish further with buttons and a pom-pom tail.
