  2. Fusible adhesive sheet
  3. Pom-poms, 20mm
  4. White yarn

1

    Download and print the templates from sewmag.co.uk, then trace the bunny onto a fusible adhesive sheet, flipping half the images over so that the bunnies face different directions. Cut out the shapes, then iron them onto the back of various printed fabrics. Cut out and peel away the backing paper.

2

    Cut plain yellow cotton rectangles, 14cm x 20cm. Fuse the bunnies on the centre of each piece and secure with a small zig zag stitch in yellow thread. Stitch a 20mm pom-pom to the centre back of each bunny.

3

    Cut matching rectangles of plain white cotton and pin the appliqué panels on top. Cut several 3cm wide strips of printed cotton and join end to end. Use the strips to bind each rectangle on three sides by sewing to the back of the rectangles, then press over to the front, folding under 5mm on the raw edges and topstitching in place.

4

    Create the top binding and suspension cord at the same time by binding a continuous strip to the back of the work, leaving a 5cm gap in between each pennant. As you fold and topstitch the binding to the front of the bunting, fold in the raw edges of the gaps and topstitch.
