Last year I uploaded that pattern to create a simple Easter Bunny - and many of you made so wonderful and amazing Easter Bunnies! Some made them out of paper, many sewed really cute bunnies. And so I decided to take the bunny from last year (only made a few modifications) and sew two different versions by using the same pattern: a very simple version and another one with arms and legs and a more detailed face. The simple version is really very easy - absolutely perfect for beginners. And the other version is only a tiny little bit more fiddly - but not really difficult.
And hey, next weekend its already Easter - so hurry up
First download the >>> RevoluzZzionary Easter Bunny pattern and print it - cut it out, chose your fabric, pin the pattern on the fabric and cut out:
Simple Easter Bunny:
When you want to stitch the face of your bunny on a fabric itâ€™s good to iron some Vlieseline on the inner side of the fabric. I donâ€™t know the proper English word for this: Itâ€™s something you use to make the fabric a bit thicker:
Now make your little bunny a unique face - maybe some cute cheeks, maybe Miffy-like pout. Whatever your like. And you could give your bunny a heart now
Before you sew the front and back of your bunny together, you serge the bottom of the bunny - where you will close it later with a blind stitch. And then: pin the front and the back together - of course the outside in. Sew the parts together and cut the parts between the ears and on the neck. Then serge everything:
And now the most exciting part comes: Turn your bunny inside out!
Thatâ€™s it! Now you fill your bunny with doll wadding, use a shop stick for the ears and close your new friend with a blind stitch.
This cute bunny is perfect for Easter decoration - but itâ€™s also perfect as a toy for babies. Itâ€™s perfect for little hands to grab it. And it gets even more exciting for babies when you put a rattle in the bunny tummy.
When I started sewing for kids about 3 years ago - my first best sellers were pretty simple bunnies (I called them Ladus) which were resembling this simple bunny. And I sewed to ribbons between the ears to tie them to a baby bed. And I filled the bunny tummy with lavender which has a very positive impact on babies. And you can even put a musical box inside this bunny and make it a wunderful and unique musical cuddly toy.
OK, that was really easy. Now try the other version.
