If you celebrate Easter, it is on 4 April this year. In other words, there is still time for some non-sweet Easter sewing projects.

Trying to limit the number of sugary treats you give your children (or yourself), does not prevent you from having a hippity-hoppity Easter. All you need is a little imagination and a love of sewing.

For your convenience, we have curated the best tutorials from the world wide web. All skill levels are catered for – from novice to adept sewist. Click on the appropriate image to follow the link.

Drawstring Treat Bags 

Not only can these bags be bunnies, chicks, or carrots, but they are also quick and easy to make. What’s more, you need as little as four 15-centimetre squares of fabric, so you can use up those pesky scraps.

Bunny Backpack 

Up your bag-game and progress from treat bags to basic backpacks in the shape of an Easter bunny.

Baby Things

Mark baby’s first easter with a rabbit “love” or bunny ear teething ring.

If you would prefer a bigger item, how about sewing a soft toy.

Pencil Holders 

Combine the celebration with a useful pencil holder. Not only will it look cute, but you won’t have the kids’ pencils strewn all over the room.

Kitchen Items 

Adults can be treated too! A real hens’ egg basket is a handy way to keep your pantry organised. The best part is that it is useful all year long.

The joy of celebratory placemats is that they are easy to store between holidays. From basic egg-shaped versions to more advanced rabbit shapes, they make a lovely addition to your Easter table.

Even as a beginner, these ideas and an affordable sewing machine will turn you into the star of Easter! For more information on which sewing machine or overlocker is best for you, contact the knowledgeable team at Empisal today.
