Easter Candy Pouches Tutorial and Printable

I made these thinking it would be a fun craft to do with the kids. You know, cute little Easter chick and bunny candy pouches. Well, they were so much fun to make that I ended up doing them myself. I think I’ll save them as an Easter surprise for the kids. Or the kids can make some for his/her class at school and share them with their friends.

It’s so simple to make and you probably already have the supplies at home. And I made the pattern downloadable for you to print from your own printer. If you make something inspired by Simply Modern Mom, please upload pictures of it to our Flickr group to show it off to everyone.

Supplies:

  • construction paper
  • chick and bunny pattern (click to download)
  • yarn or string
  • scissors
  • small hole punch
  • candy
  • googly eyes
  • markers
  • large eye needle or tape

1. Print the chick and bunny egg pattern (click link to download) and cut out the pieces.

2. Use the pattern to trace two egg, two bunny ears, two feet and one beak onto construction paper. Cut out the pieces.

3. Match the front and back of the egg patterns then punch holes around the edges about 3/4-inch apart.

4. Stitch the egg pattern together using yarn, but leaving an opening at the top. I used a darning needle, but if you don’t have large eye needles, you can always tape the yarn end to help sew through the holes.

5. Glue chick and bunny parts to create a face. For the bunny’s face, I drew nose and mouth then colored the ears with thin markers. Attach the bunny ears and chick feet by gluing it to the back. And fold the beak in half (top point meeting the bottom) then apply glue to the back side of the beak.

6. Using the opening at the top, fill the pouch with candy. Hold the yarn ends while filling with candy so the stitching doesn’t come loose and the candy doesn’t fall out.

7. Pull the yarn tight. Then sew the remainder top of the egg and tie the ends together on the back. And done!

    These are cute, we are going to have to make these! I’m not sure jelly beans maybe, because I have them already. I’m a chocolate girl but dont think that would be very good filler.

    Had great fun making these with my boys (6yrs and 4yrs). We made them as a present for their little cousin who’s too young for a big chocolate Easter egg. We put a small Freddo and little fluffy chick in each.
    Thank you for the tute!

    I’d love to try these using felt, leaving the top open a little to stuff little candies in.
