I'm so glad I bought those pinking shears! I have used them so much for my Easter projects! Today I am working on some farmhouse fabric bunnies.
I love that you can take scrap fabric and cut it out with the pinking shears and it gives the edge a finished look.
This project is so simple but, the results are SUPER cute!!
Want to make these Easter bunny bowl fillers you've seen in Hobby Lobby? You will need the following supplies.
- Bunny Pattern
- Cotton Ball
- Scissors or pinking shears
- Hot glue gun and glue
First, take the pattern and trace it to a piece of cardboard so that you can make a pattern. I traced a bunny that I bought at Hobby Lobby.
Pick some fun fabric for your bunnies. You can really use anything you have on hand. It can literally be scraps because you need very little fabric. I had some fabric leftover from another project but, I have also used fabric from an old sheets as well.
Double your fabric putting right sides facing each other. Trace the bunny to the back side of the fabric and cut out the bunny. You should now have 2 bunnies. Turn the fabric to the right side and put the two pieces together.
Grab the glue and the glue gun and begin to glue the bunny on the inside in small sections glueing the bunny together.
Be sure to leave an opening at the bottom of the bunny so that you can stuff your bunny with the poly-fil.
Stuff the bunny and then seal up the remaining opening with more hot glue.
Once you have completely sealed your bunny, grab some ribbon and tie a little bow. Hot glue the bow to the bunnies neck and that's it!
Your bunny is ready to hop into a dough bowl or onto a tiered tray! It will be so cute for Easter!
