    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    The ITH Easter Candy Bags are designed for small candies. Due to the sticky nature of these small candies it is recommended that you put them in a 2” x 3” plastic bag before inserting them in the bunnies. Do not use adhesive spray in the layering of any of the fabrics in this project.


    Step 1:

    d. Vinyl 3” square
    e. Stable 2.5 ounce cut away stabilizer to fit your hoop

    Step 10:
    Align the 3 x 5 ½” felt rectangle over the bottom of the project so that the 5 ½” width of the felt is placed right along the original front felt stitched placement line. Align the 4 ½” x 5 ½” felt so that the 5 ½” felt width is placed right along the top of the original front felt stitched placement line. This will cause the top felt to overlap the bottom felt the appropriate amount. Place embroidery tape down both sides of the felt layers to hold in place. To keep the tape from being caught on the bed of the machine have the tape extend all the way to the top and bottom of your hoop.


    Step 11:
    Return the hoop to the machine and run the last CS to complete the candy bag.
