Bunny Plushie DIY

No, your memory is not failing you, nor is it that funny taste that may have been in your drink.  Although, if that actually happened, you may want to look into it.  You may have seen this post before.  In an attempt to make everything easier to navigate for everyone, I am working on transferring all of the old beauty and craft posts from the recipe blog to their appropriate homes on the newer wings.  I'll be only one a day so as not to clog up your feeds, so please bear with all the boring re-caps!

This post is a tutorial for...SURPRISE!  Another felt plushie.  A bunny plushie!

You're in shock, aren't you?

Yes, I'm on a plushie kick.

First, figure out what basic shape you want your bunny to be, then draw it onto the felt and cut it out of your desired color and don't forget to use two layers so you have a front and a back.  I wanted my bunny to have an abnormally large head.

Using one of your body-pieces, lay it on your sheet foam and cut around it so you have a roughly bunny-like sheet foam shape, then sandwich them all together.

Play around with face parts and figure out how you want your bunny to look.  This look really creeped me out, so I went with this one instead:

Once you get the look you want, either stitch or glue on all the pieces.  I glued most of them, but stitched the tiny white pieces and the sequins for his dreamy little eye glimmers on with thread because hot glue and felt tend to be a hard combination to control at times, and I absolutely loathe a project with hot glue bubbles and strings sticking out all over the place, so if its something tiny where I'm afraid I won't be spot-on in my application, I use another method.

Sandwich it all together, stitch it up, and now you have yourself a bunny plushie.

A cute little happy one without the creepy "I'll-come-alive-and-kill-you-in-your-sleep" teeth.

Unless its a gift for someone you secretly hate and you want them to be peeking out at the evil thing from under their blankie at night and trembling in terror - then use the creepy face for him.  This was for my niece and I love her and don't want to creep her out, so I made him all cute and friendly.  :)
