DIY Cute Felt Bunnies




About: Hey, I'm Muhaimina! A crazy craft addict! Obsessed with swirls and polka dots... Love green craft and rustic home decors... and Instructables is pretty much my second home!

I love plush toys, especially when the tiny ones! Felt plush toys have become very popular these days and I’ve made tons so far.

These bunny plush toys are one of my favorite felt creations. I’m so happy with how they turned out. You'll need only a few supplies, they're so easy to make and great for last minute decoration or gift.

Check out the tutorial and try making one :-)

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make this bunny plush toy you'll need:

  1. Felt
  2. Scissors
  3. Bunny template
  4. Pencil or pen
  5. Needle and thread
  6. Small black beads

Step 2: Template

Simply print and then cut out the patterns. For the belly of the bunny you can use the oval shape or the heart shape as you want.

Step 3: Trace and Cut

Prepare the bunny template and select a felt fabric.

Place the main body pattern on the felt and carefully trace around the sides of it on the felt. You’ll need 2 of these.

Use scissors to cut out the 2 felt pieces for the body.

Cut out the belly part (oval or heart) and ear parts from pink colored felt.

Use a matching thread to attach these pieces with the front body piece of the bunny. I did flat blanket stitches around the sides to attach them.

Step 4: Stitching Details

Mark the 2 points for the eyes and use black beads for the eyes. Stitch or glue the eyes, but it’s better to stitch.

Also use black thread to stitch the other features of the bunny, I did the face only.

Place both body pieces together, with the patterned piece facing up. Stitch around the sides to join both pieces. Start to stitch either from the bottom part or the top part, I started from the right ear. But do not stitch all around, go to the next step for further instruction.

Step 5: Stuffing

When you’re done stitching halfway through, start to stuff it with wool or scrap felt. After stuffing half of it continue to stitch again. Stuff each part after stitching around that part.

Done stitching? Simply tie 2-3 knots with the remaining thread and cut off extra threads.

Done! Mix and match different colored felt fabric for variation.

Happy crafting!
