How cute are these? I found a picture tutorial here, and decided to give these a go. They are a great way of using up scraps and the reels of cotton are rather old ones that were given to me when an old aunt had a clear out!
There were no real measurements given in the original pattern – so I had to wing it a bit.
I cut out the pieces (shown above) and made a body out of the linen semi-circle and large flowered piece of material – rather like an egg cosy. Then I stitched around the outside of the two circles and gathered them in to make two Suffolk puffs. The larger puff was stitched to the bottom of the body and the smaller was sewn on top of the bunnies ears – which were made from the oval piece of linen. For a better set of photo instructions go to the link above.
Buttons were then sewn onto either side of the little rabbit and a cotton reel secured onto the front by running a ribbon through the reel and tying it around the buttons.
Happy stitching to all!
