DIY Bunny.

What is Easter décor without a bunny or two?

In this post I’ll be sharing a super quick and easy DIY to make you’re own Easter bunny – so easy that even someone who can’t really sew would find it… ‘sew easy’ (see what I did there?).

You’ll need:

  • 2x fabric cuttings of equal length (it all depends how big you want your bunny to be)
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon or lace
  • Pencil
  • Needle and thread or a sewing machine
  • Stuffing

Step 1

Draw your bunny shape on a piece of card as a stencil and the cut the bunny out (I do not have an image of this because I got carried away with excitement)

Step 2

Trace the bunny shape on the backside of each piece of fabric and then cut the shape out.

Step 3

Sew the two half of you’re bunny together with the 2 outside panels facing in.

Leave a gap to allow for the ‘inside-out turning’ and stuffing.

Then once you have sewed them together turn the bunny inside out so that the side of fabric you want to show is on the outside again.

Step 4

Stuff your bunny carefully but as fully as you can (Use a stick/paintbrush/knitting needle to make sure you get stuffing as far up the ears as possible).

Step 5

Sew the opening you left for stuffing closed and tie a bow (or not – it’s your Easter bunny). You now have an Easter Bunny.

Did you Know?

The Easter Eggs associated with Easter represent the New Life that comes through Christ. The Easter Bunny is related in a similar way, (due to their prolific ability to create an abundance of new life) but from a more pagan tradition that according to the History channel started round the 1700s – with the Germans (as did easter eggs).
