Easter Treat Tags from Art Gallery Fabrics

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know about you but I am ready for April, the beautiful weather and new life it brings! Easter is around the corner and it is a great holiday to spend with family and friends and an excuse to eat candy. We have a super sweet and cute project to share with you today, Easter themed treat tags! I loved how this project turned out and it will for sure bring a smile to the person’s face you give it to. What better way to hand out sweets then with a personal touch? My tags are made with Les Petits fabric by Amy Sinibali. I love this collection because it is full of cute dot, stripe, and check prints that is perfect basics to have in your fabric stash. Mixing these fabrics with Bernina’s decorative and alphabets stitches turned my tags into such a fun make!

Step 3: Creating your words and decorative stitches

Touch the Alphabet button and select the type of font and words you would like to stitch. (If you have a different BERNINA model, check your manual to find out how to program lettering.)

Then touch the “i” icon. If you want your word to be stitched only once make sure the pattern repeat is set at 1.

With a fabric marking pen mark where you would like to stitch your word and make sure to test the word on some scrap fabric so you will know how much room it will take up on your tag. (Very important!)

Play around with the decorative stitches to add some extra cuteness to your tags! I used decorative stitch #103 and #101.

Step 4: Adding the Final Touches

Stick egg and bunny to one of your tags and iron into place. With a bit of hot glue attach the bunny’s tail. Fold tags in half . Fill your mini treat bags with your favorite treat and place the tags over the opening of the bag and staple into place on each side of your tag!
