With our unusually warm weather (it will be in the 60's tomorrow), my thoughts are turning to spring. This weekend I made a couple of these linen bunnies. I stuffed one with fiberfill and the other with lavender. At 6.5" tall, they would be charming grouped together in a display, or added to an Easter basket.
I tied a vintage religious medal around the neck and a sewed a paper rose for the tail. A button or found rhinestone piece would also work well as a tail. If you'd like to make your own, I've provided a template for the bunny below. Simply print out the file on cardstock, cut out the template and trace two pieces onto your choice of fabric. Bright colorful prints would be adorable too. Sew along the traced line and leave a 1.5" opening to add the filling. Trim edges to 1/8" and turn right side out. Press, add filling, and stitch opening closed. If you create your own bunnies, please share your photos. I'd love to see them!
(April 2014 update: We now have a sweet little Easter Chick pattern to accompany our bunny. For details visit this post.)
