The Loop Rabbit Bag: Figures 41 and 42 show the bag. The top is hemmed well. Round holes are then cut in the top an equal distance apart. These holes are buttonhole stitched to keep from raveling. At one end a loop of tape or shoe string is sewed on securely. Rabbit is placed in bag. Loop A is then threaded through the holes all around the top of the bag back to the starting point. This serves as a drawstring.
When top of bag is drawn together, bag can be hung on nail at back of chair by the loop. When bag is removed from nail and loop released from fingers, the bag opens easily. The loop need not be very long. You can best determine the length for yourself by finding the most convenient length for you.
Another bag similar to this one has, instead of holes cut into it, small rings sewed along the top about an inch and a half apart. The loop is passed through these rings.
The Handkerchief Rabbit Bag: Figure 43 shows the construction of this bag. It is made from a black or dark-colored handkerchief. A ring is sewed at each corner and a larger one a few inches from one corner.
Rabbit is placed in center of handkerchief on side opposite from ring. The four corners of handkerchief are pulled up together. The four corner rings are then passed through the larger ring. Push larger ring down around rabbit to keep him secure in bag, Figure 44.
The Flap Rabbit Bag: Figures 45 and 46 show this bag. It has a flap on bottom which folds up and is held in place with a simple catch made of leather. Part of this catch is sewed to bag proper and part to flap. A nail secures the catch. Nail is tied to ring at top with piece of string to keep it from falling down when it is removed from catch.
The ring at top goes over the nail on back of chair. This bag is most used for
a quick production of pigeons or a duck. When catch is released, flap falls down and out come the animals.
It is also good for production of candy kisses when there are children in the audience.
The Basted Bottom Bag: Figure 47 illustrates this bag, which is also most often used for quick production of doves rather than rabbits. Make a cloth bag like the illustration with a ring at top. Put animals into bag with open bottom. Then attach a small button to a thread and baste bottom of bag, leaving a few inches of thread at free end. When ready for production, merely grasp button and quickly pull out basting thread. This opens bottom of bag and releases animals.
