Step 2

Transfer the pattern to the felt.

I like using a trick marker since the color disappears by itself after a day (in contact with the water, it disappears immediately). 

Step 3

Cut out two pieces, one for the front and one for the back (turn the pattern on the back side for the back part).

Step 4

Hand stitch some flowers and leaves on the front side of one piece —see the picture for the reference where (not too close to the edge). 

Step 5

Sew the bunny together—put both bunny pieces together facing wrong sides together. Sew them together using the blanket hand stitch. Do not forget to leave the opening at the bottom (see the template where).

Step 6

Stuff the bunny through the opening tightly. If you would like to stuff the ears as well, then stuff them right after you sew together the whole head – it will be much easier.

Step 7

Close the opening continuing the blanket stitch. 

Step 8

Create a small tail using wool or cotton yarn, and sew it onto the bunny (see the downloaded tutorial on how).

Step 9

Final touches. Add ribbon around the bunny’s neck if desired. Create eyes using the black sewing beads on both sides (sew tightly onto the place). Add a string if you want to create a bunny ornament.

I really enjoyed making Bernie the cat it was a nice break from sewing twenty pillows covers and inserts and two quilts a twin and a queen.I’ve made a dog,Bernie, a teddy bear and a rabbit.I think it took me longer to stuff them than it did to make. I was in a mva six years ago which put a stop to all.But I’m back now been sewing for six months and that’s about all I can do now I have excursiating pain I’m rebuilt with titanium mud back to toes but I’m trying my son gave me a very first singer sewing machine built in late 1700 to early 1800s it’s a music box when it plays all parts move.I’ll cherish that forever but he gave me more incentive to keep on trying instead of giving up so that’s why Bernie got made.My hobby that keeps me going and my mind working even if my body doesn’t Thank you for encouraging me to do what I love.Thanks Emily Engle [email protected]
