Who doesn’t love tiny little cute animals that fit in the palm of your hand?! I tried to get this sweet felt bunny diy done in lots time for Easter, but with the state of the world being what it is, and my boys being home 24/7, I only got it done with a few days to spare. But I figured that was ok because honestly you don’t need Easter as an excuse to make this adorable rabbit! Any time of year is a good time for crafting woodland critters!

This little felt bunny diy could be used in a number of ways. It could be a simple pocket pal for kiddos, you could turn it into an ornament or a gift topper and it’s kind of perfect for putting in Easter baskets or using in a mobile or garland. So many ideas!
This is a very simple diy, you could finish one felt bunny in about 45 minutes. Sometimes a real quick project is all you need to satisfy your creative needs, plus it’s really nice to do a project start to finish all in one go! (That hardly ever happens to me, lol!)

I used more traditional bunny colours for mine, but these would be really sweet in pinks and blues too!
I actually designed this little cutie pie bunny to accompany my woodland animal pattern pack. Which you can find here in the pattern shop. Look how sweet they all look together!

Felt Bunny DIY
Cut out the paper pattern and pin it to your felt. Carefully cut out the bunny using small sharp embroidery scissors. Cut out two sides.
Next add some embroidery details. I did a simple back stitch with two strands of pink thread to fill in the ears.
I only embroidered details on one side of the bunny but you could definitely do it on both sides depending on what you’re using it for.
For the darker bunny I stitched the eye with the pink thread too. But for the light coloured bunnies I used a grey thread.
Use a blanket stitch with two strands to stitch the front and back together.
Start at the back of the bunny’s neck, go around the ears and carefully use tweezers to stuff the ears. Continue stitching around, stopping after the front paw and again after the tail to stuff it. Keep going up his back, stuffing as you go until you’re back where you started.
Now you can tie a little ribbon around it’s neck! Ok, that brown bunny totally looks like a chocolate Easter bunny! Haha
While I was sewing up these little guys, I realized they fit perfectly in the garden I designed for this colouring page!
