I just love bunnies. Plushies, stuffies, stickers, you name it! That’s why I decided to try out making an Easter bunny plushie. It’s super easy and fun to make. You can make tons and tons for everyone who you want to make a basket for.
Making an Easter Bunny Plushie
I decided to join Tiny Sidekick’s Pinterest Challenge. This is where bloggers were challenged to create something that they pinned. Since it is close to Easter, I went to search for Easter Bunny Craft Ideas. I created this plush bunny, an easy Easter craft to make. It’s such an easy to sew pattern! Especially since it uses felt, which makes it very easy for little fingers (if you are completing this Easter project with children), or adults with fat fingers (like me).
Of course, you will need some felt … I love pink!
I traced the template and ironed it onto plush material. Sorry for the blurry picture. 🙁
Here are all the pieces.
Here’s Peter’s head and ear. I didn’t have any pinking shears so I had to cut it out with a pair of scissors.
Ear turned inside out.
And finally, attaching his head to his body.
Next time, I am going to cut more of a seam allowance based on my own seams, which were admittedly more like 1/2″ rather than 1/4″. I’m also going to invest in some pinking shears. The only issue that I had with this pattern and template was that you should pink around the body as well since it is very bulky once it is turned inside out (of course … that could also be my seam allowance!).
Pink bunny was just in time for my friend Peter who is experiencing some troubles.

I actually think she took it down, which is totally a bummer. But you gave me a great idea for an Easter project! 🙂 I will try to redesign it. In the meantime, if you come across another bunny plushie, please let us know.
