Easy Sewing Projects For Beginners: Plush Bunny
Step (1) Place the main body pattern of the template on the selected felt and carefully trace around the sides of it on the felt. You’ll need 2 of these.
Stitch the heart belly and ears with this part as it’ll be the front side of the bunny.
Work with flat blanket stitch or running stitch to attach them.
Make sure that the stitching is neat and even.
Step (8) Done adding all the details for the front side of the bunny?
Time to craft the plushie!
Take the other felt piece for the main body part.
Step (9) Place both body pieces together, with the patterned piece facing up. Stitch around the sides to join both pieces.
Step (10) Start stitching either from the bottom part or the top part.
But do not stitch all around; go to the next step for further instruction.
Step (11) Keep an opening on any one side for stuffing the bunny.
Use a pointy object, such as pen or tip of paint brush to push the stuffing through the tiny legs and eras of the bunny.
Step (12) Once the bunny is fluffy is enough you can stop stuffing and prepare needle and thread to stitch the open end.
Step (13) Stitch the open end nicely.
You can attach a ribbon loop through the open end before closing it if you want to make a key fob or charm, but it’s optional.
Happy Sewing! This is a fun easy sew project. However if you’re looking for an easy to use sewing machine you might want to consider thesewingflow.
