DIY Bunny Stuffies--Easy enough for a kid to make!

Happy Monday friends!

I hope your week is off to a great start.  Today I'm sharing a simple project that I did with my kids last week.  It was totally spontaneous and unplanned, but my kids totally ate it up.

It seems like as my kids get older it's harder and harder to be able to just have a crafting afternoon.  Between sports and extracurricular activities we are just so busy!  So I really cherish the times when we do get a chance to do a little unplanned crafting.

We made bunnies!  They are tiny little things, made exclusively from my scrap bin.  Yet my kids love them so much!
 My 7 year old did almost all of the sewing herself, and she was so proud of the result.  She really liked trying to figure out how we could make a simple bunny from just a few pieces.
These little bunnies are a really great first sewing project for kids, and you can even use a hot glue gun if you want to make it even simpler.
 Who wants to make some bunnies?

Here's what you need:

  • scraps of fabric
  • polyfil
  • small pieces of felt for the ears
  • pom poms
  • glue gun
  • puff paint for the facial features 
  • template 
Let's get started!  Cut out your pieces using the provided template.  Place the right sides together and sew around one edge.  Then line up the third piece, again with the right sides together and sew it to each side of the double piece you just sewed.

Turn right side out and stuff.
Here you can either close the opening with a blind stitch, or you can use a glue gun to close it. 

Then just use a glue gun to attach the ears and tail.  To make the ears pinched at the bottom I just added a little bit of glue to the center of the base and pinched together the two sides. Finally I used a little bit of puff paint to make the eyes on the bunny.  My kids added noses and whiskers as well!   So fun!

Have a great week everyone!
