Step 3

Cut a length of thread about 12 in. of black, using all 6 strands of thread. Using an embroidery need thread the need and embroider 2 black eyes and 1 mouth. I used 4 stitches starting just above the pencil mark. Make the first stitch small. Then make the next 2 larger center under the first stitch. Then make 1 more smaller stitch to match the top. Use pink thread for the nose. I started at the dot making a small stitch then increasing each time. You could also use felt or a sharpie or fabric paint pin.

Step 4.

Use straight pins to pin both layers of the bunny together. Use your sewing machine to sew the bunny together using 1/4 in seam allowance. Start at the bottom about a 1/2 in from the 1 side. Sew around the either bunny. Go slow and pivot as needed. Leave a 2 in opening at the bottom. Don’t forget to back stitched at the start and end.

Step 5.

Stuff the bunny with polyfil. Start with the ears. Use something to help stuff. I used the eraser end of a pencil.

Step 6.

Sew the whole closed using the sewing machine. Push the edges together and smash the filling down.
