One of the highlights of my niece Josie’s ‘snow bunny’ party was the array of bunny rabbit softies that dotted the decor.
These bunnies would make great Easter basket treasures and were fairly simple to put together (the most labor intensive part was embroidering the faces), so I thought I’d share the DIY process.
I used the free Black Apple Doll pattern and tutorial as my guide. I made a couple of Black Apple Dolls awhile back and just modified my head pattern to add ears. Then, after cutting out all of my pieces, I embroidered bunny eyes and bunny noses onto the faces and followed the same steps as the doll tutorial suggests.
Since these bunny softies double featured as party decor and as a gift for the birthday girl (well, one did), and since they are just so darn adorable, they were totally worth the effort!
If you’re looking for an extra special addition to an Easter basket (or anytime present), may I suggest whipping up one of these bunny softies? If your Smooches are like Josie and Piper (who was the recipient of the pink bunny), you’ll have one happy girl on Easter!
This is darling!
So sweet! Love all the colors.
Thank Jenilyn! 🙂
They’re so cute – I want to make a bunch and line them up to look at. Mantle decor? Think the line-up would last long? Probably not…
Thanks Stef! Funny you mentioned a mantle lineup- I had them up there for a little while during party prep. Well, sort of. My kids just kept taking them down and I’d find them tucked all over the house. Hilarious. 🙂
hello – i am making a few these for my daughter for easter. did you follow her pattern exactly or did you make your arms and legs a little longer? i want to be sure mine look just like yours – adorable!
Jesse, now that you say this, I think I did make the arms and legs a little longer (and maybe even the teensiest bit skinnier- I sewed right on the traced lines instead of leaving a perimeter). I should add that to the post!
i mean, Kirstin!!
They look ADORABLE! <3
