Essentials
Get started
  1. Fabric: Washington Street Studio Vintage 1930s Florals fat quarters; coordinating plain cotton; white cotton
  2. Lightweight quilt wadding
  3. White yarn
  4. Buttons
  5. Fibre filling

1

    Download and print the templates from sewmag.co.uk, then trace the pieces onto the back of printed fabric and cut out, adding a 5mm seam allowance. Pin the ears, right sides together, onto a scrap of lightweight wadding and sew around the edges leaving the bottom open. Clip away the excess wadding before turning out, then fold in 5mm around the bottom edge and tack.

2

    Pair up the legs, right sides together, and stitch around the edges leaving the base of the foot open. Clip the curves, turn out and fold in 5mm around the base of the foot. Firmly stuff with fibre filling before closing up the leg by oversewing a felt oval to the folded edge. Remove the tacking stitches.

3

    Sew the arms, right sides together, leaving a 3cm gap in the back of each one. Clip the curves and turn out. Firmly stuff before folding in the raw edges of the gap and slip-stitching closed. Oversew the small felt ovals to the front of each paw.

4

    Sew one side of the head gusset to one body piece. Stitch the darts in the bottom of each body piece before matching them up and sewing right sides together, leaving a 5cm gap in the back seam. Clip the curves and turn out. Stuff firmly before folding in the raw edges of the gap and slip-stitching closed.

5

    Cut a large oval of felt and oversew to the front of the tummy, stretching it slightly as you do so to fit the curve. Using button joints and extra strong thread, attach the limbs to the body by sewing from button to button through the limbs and body. Make a pom-pom from white yarn and stitch to the bunny’s bottom.

6

    Squeeze the base of each ear so the side seams meet up, then pin. Slip-stitch the ears to the top of the head along the lines of the gusset, and use small stitches to hold them upright. Sew pairs of small, stacked buttons halfway down the head as eyes and add a small pink heart-shaped button to the tip of the nose.
