I had so much fun creating this quirky little bunny doll. I'm planning to gift this to Jeremy's niece, Isabella, for Easter. I looove Easter, but I've never been a fan of traditional Easter colors. This plushie can easily be adapted into lots of different animals or you can even make a cute bunny family! Anyway, here goes...
I stitched this plush up in about 2 hours from %100 recycled materials (minus tread)! I went 'fabric shopping' in my own closet. Lucky for me, I recently made a huge donation bag so it was easy to choose. I found a few oversized dresses in fabrics i loved to rework!
Step 1: Cut 2 pieces each of these two measurements (inches). These will be the base for the head and body of your cute bunny. note: when reworking used garments, it's best to avoid seams and try to find large sections of unstitched fabric to cut from.
Step 4: To stitch together your bunny's head; stitch, reverse and stuff ears (example below) stitch the face together with the facial features facing down (insider) and the ears upside down on the inside. Leave a 4 inch hole at the base of the bunny's head for stuffing and body attachment.
Step 5: It's time to choose something sweet for the front of your bunny's body (one of your 6x6 pieces). I thought a pocket from my lumberjack shirt would be cool, but in the end i settled on a heart instead!
Step 6: Cut our arms and legs (2 layers or fabric for each limb). My cut fabric for arms was 2x3 inches and legs were 2x4 inches. Stitch the pieces, turn them inside out and stuff like (just like you did with ears).
