DIY Stuffed Bunny Pattern – Step by Step
Step 1 – Trace The Stuffed Bunny Pattern Onto The Fabric
out the pattern and cut out all the pieces, lay over the fabric all the paper templates and with a pencil or a marker for fabric, trace all the pieces, you will need to trace 2 ears, 2 arms, 2 legs and one body on the back of the fabric.
Lay each piece of fabric over a piece of fabric, right side to right side and pin it.
Stitch on the ears, arms and legs, the pencil mark will be the stitching guide. Remove all pins and cut out each stitched piece, when cutting out each piece add the 1/4″ for the seam.
Clip all curved seams, and turn out each piece.
Step 2 – Stuff Up Arms and Legs
With soft stuff for pillows, stuff up arms and legs gently.
Step 3 – Pin Up Arms, Legs and Ears
Take the piece you marked for the body and cut out the piece with 1/4″ for the seam, clip the seam on each mark for the arms, legs and ears.
Pin arms, legs and folded ears on each mark.
Stitch on all around the piece on the edge so you can remove all pins from the piece.
Step 4 – Stitch On The Bunny
Lay the piece with the arms, legs and ears, on the piece for the back, right side to right side, pinch a few pins to keep both pieces in place as you stitch on the piece on the sewing machine, don’t forget to leave a gap open to turn the piece out on one side.
Step 5 – Trim All Around
With the help of a pair of scissors for fabric, trim the piece all around, leave 1/4 inch for the seam.
Clip the seam all around, cut the two bottom corners diagonally. Turn out the piece, push gently the seams out from the inside with your finger tips or with the help of a rounded point pair of scissors.
Step 6 – Stuff Up The Bunny
With the help of a pencil or a marker for fabrics, trace the face on the bunny, I traced a happy face on one side and a sleepy face on the back.
Stuff up the bunny gently. Stitch on to close the gap, it can be done on the sewing machine, reinforce the stitching at the begining and at the end.
Step 7 – Embroider The Bunny Face
It’s time to do the hand embroidery for the face, with embroidery floss any color you want to use.
Satin stitching for the nose and eyes and back stitching for the mouth.
Don’t forget to add some cuteness with big basting stitching on both ears.
The Stuffed Bunny is done and it looks so cute!
