I had so much fun creating this quirky little bunny doll. I’m planning to gift this to Jeremy’s niece, Isabella, for Easter. I looove Easter, but I’ve never been a fan of traditional Easter colors. This plushie can easily be adapted into lots of different animals or you can even make a cute bunny family! Anyway, here goes…
I stitched this plush up in about 2 hours from %100 recycled materials (minus tread)! I went ‘fabric shopping’ in my own closet. Lucky for me, I recently made a huge donation bag so it was easy to choose. I found a few oversized dresses in fabrics i loved to rework!
Step 1: Cut 2 pieces each of these two measurements (inches). These will be the base for the head and body of your cute bunny. note: when reworking used garments, it’s best to avoid seams and try to find large sections of unstitched fabric to cut from.
Step 4: To stitch together your bunny’s head; stitch, reverse and stuff ears (example below) stitch the face together with the facial features facing down (insider) and the ears upside down on the inside. Leave a 4 inch hole at the base of the bunny’s head for stuffing and body attachment.
Step 5: It’s time to choose something sweet for the front of your bunny’s body (one of your 6×6 pieces). I thought a pocket from my lumberjack shirt would be cool, but in the end i settled on a heart instead!
Step 6: Cut our arms and legs (2 layers or fabric for each limb). My cut fabric for arms was 2×3 inches and legs were 2×4 inches. Stitch the pieces, turn them inside out and stuff like (just like you did with ears).
