Some Bunny Loves You!

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine's Day! I made it back just in time to share my V- day bunny.

Here she is in a close up. Technically, I made her as a Valentine's decoration, but she's become a little pin cushion holder and now sits on a shelf just above my work area.

This project was very simple to make. The  pattern / image (seen below) is actually from my Silhouette library. I used a sketch pen to draw the image onto some cardstock, then cut it out by hand to make the pattern. After tracing out the images  onto some felt, I cut the pieces out and added about a 1/4" around each piece for the seam allowance.

The two body pieces were stitched together, turned inside out then stuffed. The ears were stitched together and turned inside out also, but instead of stuffing them I used a blanket stitch around the outer edges.  The ears were then stitched onto the head. For the front paws, I cut them out freehand. I wanted them to hold the heart and the original design's feet wouldn't have worked, as I needed them to look more like hands. I also decided to add a white muzzle, (which was also cut freehand) to the face and omit the teeth. The base the bunny is sitting on, is made out of a paper mache box lid. The lid was covered in felt and then embellished  with a felt border, ribbon and flower.

Supplies Used:
Fancy Pants - felt arrow, flowers and frames.
Maya Road - red flower
Basic Grey - felt trim and small hearts
Hobby Lobby - felt, paper mache box lid, stuffing, embroidery thread, micro beads, wood dowel.
Other - cardstock, black marker, brad, felt ric-rac and printer.

Have a great Valentine's Day!
