My close friend’s daughter is turning one this month. When I asked Krista what Everleigh needed, she said NOTHING. She honestly has everything. Of course I couldn’t go to a birthday party with nothing, so I made it my mission to make her something. I started brainstorming and decided I had to use up some of my fabric scraps. I thought about making a quiet book and then decided to look at actual books. I ended choosing “How Much I Love You”. This sparked the idea to create a bunny to go with the book… and then I decided the bunny needed a home, so created a bag to carry bunny and some accessories around. And it is similar to a quiet book, so is perfect for restaurants and such.
Download and print out the Scrap Fabric Bunny Pattern.
Now let’s create a Rabbit Sandwich. Place the body, right side up. Place the ears at the top of the head, right side down, with about a 1/2″ space in between. Place the arms on the sides, making sure they are the same height from the bottom. Last, place the legs with a 1/4″ space in between.
Place the second body piece right side down and pin all pieces into place.
Starting about 1/2″ from the bottom on one side, sew around the entire edge of the bunny using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave a 2″ space for turning (I tend to end about 1/4″ below the bunny’s arm).
Flip the bunny right side out.
