Ecru DMC Floss
#3799 DMC Floss
Acrylic paint (skin color)
1. Print the template available HERE. Cut it out. Place the “bunny” template on your felt. Trace around it with a pen, pencil or marker. You’ll need 2 bunny pieces. Stitch the face details on one of the cut-out felt piece. See pattern for placement.
2. Pin these bunny pieces wrong side together. Whip stitch around the outside edges with Ecru DMC Floss. If you don’t know how to do a whip stitch, head over to YouTube and check out Laura Ann’s SewVeryEasy YouTube channel for a quick tutorial. Make sure to leave the bottom of your bunny open for stuffing. Or you can stuff as you go. After you’re done stuffing it, sew the bottom shut.
3. Using the template, cut one blanket from the fleece piece. Wrap the bunny as indicated in the picture and stitch the bottom closed. Tack the “lapel” down if desired.
4. Using a Q-tip, dab a little bit of paint on the ears and the cheeks. Let dry. Snuggle to your heart’s content!
