Easter Bunny Bag · Free Crochet Pattern

Looking for a free crochet Easter basket pattern to make for your little one's Easter egg hunt? Look no further! This quick, easy, and ADORABLE pouch is the perfect handmade basket for this activity!


The Easter Bunny Bag is a clutch-style basket with a cute and 3D bunny applique. The bag itself is colorful, no-sew, and spacious for storing lots of Easter eggs! Use your child's favorite colors to make this block colored bag! 

The PDF pattern includes many in-line progress photos as part of a detailed photo tutorial to help guide you through the project.

About the Pattern

  • Easy / beginner-friendly
  • Works up quickly
  • Height of bag is easily adjustable by adding or decreasing rounds 


    This pattern is designed with super bulky weight chenille velvet yarn, which produces a soft and velvet look, while working up quickly. I used Hobbii's Toucan yarn, which is a 100% polyester fiber. The results are so plush and smooth! 

    PDF Pattern

    The PDF pattern is printable, ad-free, easy to read, includes lots of photo references, and helps support Sweet Softies! (If you enjoy my free patterns, you can consider it as a donation to me when you buy one of my pattern PDFs! It allows me to maintain my blog and continue sharing more free patterns.)

    You can get the PDF pattern from my storeRavelry, or Etsy.

    2. Position the bunny’s face and ears over the center of the bag.
    3. Sew the ear’s bottom edge down first (this way, the face can cover over the ear’s stitches). You can pinch the center to create a crease if desired.
    4. Lightly stuff the bunny’s head, then sew it down to the bag.
    5. OPTIONAL CLOTH LINING: Place the bag over a folded piece of cloth (two layers). Trace the shape and cut out the shape. Sew around the sides and bottom of the cloth, then insert it as a lining inside the bag and sew the top edges to the mouth of the bag.
