Make Your Own Basket Stuffers this Easter with my Simple Stuffed Easter Bunny Tutorial with Free Pattern
Hippity- hoppity... Easter is on its way!!! Ok. So I never really thought I would be the kind of mom that makes an Easter basket, especially for a 16 month old, but I'll admit it, I got wrapped up in the Easter spirit this year. I mean, how could you not? Candy, bunnies, pastels, eggs, chocolate, weird fake grass paper stuff. Did I mention candy and chocolate? So I found myself trying to figure out what to fill her basket with when I came upon an easy (super easy) craft tutorial to share with y'all. Here is a super duper easy stuffed Easter bunny tutorial. Hoppy Easter!

1. Use the cut-out template I've provided for printing. Click here to print.
2 You could skip the embroidery if it seems too challenging for you and just use fabric paint to paint a face and a tail. For the face, I just used a simple line stitch and a satin stitch. I've included an illustration on how to do a satin stitch below. For the tail, I just did a loop stitch and then cut the loops.
3. Lay the two bunny cut-outs face to face and sew inside out. Leave the part between the legs open. Turn right-side out and stuff with polyfil. Use a loop stitch to sew up the hole between the legs.
