Crochet Easter Basket Pattern. Bunny Bag with Drawstrings

This cute Bunny Bag with Drawstrings and floppy ears makes for a really cute Easter Basket. I  was wanting to crochet something for my husband's friend's children for putting in as part of their easter gift.

Easter Bunny Crochet Basket Bag Pattern 
 SO I set out to crochet a cute treat gift bag to give them easter as a gift. Big enough to put a few little chocolate eggs into but also a handy size that they could use at any time of the year to keep their bits and bobs in. 
You could also crochet the 5 Little ducks and put them in the bag, I originally crocheted my grandson the 5 little ducks, as he just loved the nursery rhyme.

I decided that since they are in primary I wasn't going to crochet a traditional basket as I wanted something they could carry without anything falling out of it.  So when I started out crocheting them an easter basket, somehow along the way I made the cute Easter Bunny Basket with pull ties. 

I Love how it pulls together and looks ends up looking like a long-eared bunny. I used this yarn i had laying around and it made quite a rustic easter bag.

Easter Bag Crochet Pattern 

It is so easy to Crochet a Bunny Easter Bag, with Drawstring, and with long floppy ears. And you can crochet easter eggs and let the kids have a fantastic easter hunt and fill their little bags 

This is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern. YES, you read that right. 
You will work in continuous rounds, and use markers to help keep track of rounds. 

I try to make the sequencing of the crochet pattern easy to remember where to place the increases. 
So to Simplify the Pattern, I have added some Cheats within the pattern. 

When you START the crochet bunny basket, You work a chain and work on either side of these initial chains.
YOu will INCREASE by 4 stitches in each round, and EACH increase will be into the middle of previous rounds 2 single crochet that you work into the SAME stitch. 
SO once the first round is done simply remember to work 2sc into the middle of the previous rounds 2 sc. 
I have made several of these. And love adding little crochet items into the bag 

The most Perfect size I have found Using a 4.5mm hook and ARAN yarn (PINK as shown in tutorial photos)

Newborn Baby Crochet Hat Pattern Perfect Crochet Hat for Donating to Hospitals

This newborn crochet hat is perfect for babies just coming out of the hospital or making a few baby hats in varying colors and donating them to your local hospital.  Newborn Babies can lose heat really quickly straight after birth so they require warm hats immediately to help keep them warm and cozy.  If they lose heat too quickly after being born they can become quite unwell.  Please check with your local maternity unit on what colors they may need, as some units run a traffic light system and are a fantastic visual aid for the midwives to easily identify babies that may need a little more help and attention in the first few hours.  RED -   red hats are used for babies who are more at risk and require more regular observations.  AMBER hats - require just a little bit more attention.  GREEN Hats - lower risk babies and only require routine observations as they are healthy and a good weight.  (Please check with the labor Delivery suite midwives if donations are being taken at this tim
