Create Your Own Easter Bunny

Easter crafting means lots of Easter Egg and bunny rabbit projects so I thought I’d kick off the theme with a rabbit soft toy – perfect for a little one at this time of year.

You’ll only need a few materials to create your own little bunny so let’s get started!

Tools and Materials

  • Scissors
  • Material – base colour for the rabbit, pink for the ears and some scraps to make clothes
  • Needles and thread
  • Stuffing
  • Access to a sewing machine although you can make by hand

Start by creating your pattern.  I drew mine out on old newspaper as it was nearest paper to hand but to help you out I’ve attached a template – Easter Bunny Sewing Pattern

Next pin your pattern to your materials and cut leaving an inch/couple of centimetre gap around the pattern.

Start by sewing your limbs together, remember to leave a gap to stuff each limb.  Once you’ve sewn the edges trim any excess material and turn rightside round and fill with stuffing.

Once you have all your limbs assembled – ears, arms, legs, torso sew these together – easiest to do this by hand to create your bunny.

Next you need to make some clothes – I opted for a more male looking  outfit but a little tutu skirt would look gorgeous as an alternative.

At this stage you’ll want to embroider the facial features and add any additional embellishments.
