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 and not bring a gift, so I made it my mission to make her something special. I started brainstorming and decided I had to use up some of my fabric scraps. I ended up picking out the book “How Much I Love You” which sparked the idea to create a bunny to go with the book. That spiraled into the bunny needing a home, so I created a bag to carry bunny and some accessories around – making it perfect for quiet play in restaurants, etc. So today I’m going to share with you how I made this super easy Scrap Fabric Bunny!

Sew the extremities
Attaching extremities and sewing the body
Now let’s create a Rabbit Sandwich!
Place the body, right side up.
Set the ears at the top of the head, right side down, with about a 1/2″ space in between them.
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 at 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.
he is sooo cute!!! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for later today that links to your pattern:
I just make a small version, just have to fill it and embroider the face. I just looked at your pics and cut, my doggie will be happy with it. Now I know how so my gd can make a bigger one with me
LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Pinning!!

Can you tell me where you ordered those little labels you put outside the rabbit? They just what i need: little, folded and with a heart. Thanks from Portugal ????
I really wish I could remember… I got that about 5 years ago and I can’t remember what site I ordered it from! It’s just a printed twill ribbon.
