This super quick Free Bunny Sewing Pattern is great for any occasion, and seriously they are so easy to make. 3 things are needed- fabric, ribbon, polyfil.
A few years ago, I convinced my Eliza to sew up a few bunnies for some cousins.
Sewing with kids isn’t terrible….but it does take the right blend of everything.
This does it…… which just means that if she can do it, you can too!
These bunny softies are perfect for Easter gifts, for your best friend. It’s such a cute bunny, and super simple to sew.
You can make a bunch of Easter bunnies – pile them in a Easter baskets with Easter eggs for some fun decoration.
The beauty of this little bunny plush pattern is that it does not need to be turned inside out when you are done. You are going to lay it out, cut it out and then sew it up – stuffing before finishing closing the hole for stuffing.
There is no large head you have to hand sew. No ear tip that doesn’t push out – because it’s not turned inside out.
You can use little snips to add a little ‘shag’ to the edging or just use pinking shears like we did.
This easy bunny pattern makes good use of your scraps, your leftover quilt blocks, or just some fun different fabrics you have sitting in your stash.

Free Bunny Sewing Pattern Step-by-step Instructions:
Step 1: Fold fabric or quilt block WRONG SIDES TOGETHER
Step 2: Pin pattern pieces, template on the quilt block
Step 3: Cut out using pinking shears – this is so the raw edges won’t ravel when they get used, loved or on display. You aren’t turning these right sides out- so your pinking shears cut line is it.
Step 4: Using your sewing machine, Sew all the way around leaving the bottom open for stuffing. You’ll need to watch that your seam allowance is 1/4 inch
Step 5: Stuff firmly make sure you get little stuffing into those long ears!
Step 6: Sew the opening closed by hand or by machine on the bottom of the body
Step 7: Tie bow around the bunnies neck
Don’t overstuff the bunny. You don’t want a super hard or chubby bunny. It’s fun to have a little floppy.
If you want to add a bunny face – then go right ahead! You can use light pink embroidery floss, or black thread to highlight the eyes, nose whiskers, or highlight the bunny ears.
