Making a Plushie Easter Bunny ... Here Comes Peter Cottontail!

I decided to join Tiny Sidekick’s Pinterest Challenge. This is where bloggers were challenged to create something that they pinned.  I created this plush bunny just in time for Easter.

I traced the template and ironed it onto plush material.  Sorry for the blurry picture. :(

Here are all the pieces.

Here’s Peter’s head and ear.  I didn’t have any pinking shears so I had to cut it out with a pair of scissors.

Ear turned inside out.

Finished head.

And finally, attaching his head to his body.

Next time, I am going to cut more of a seam allowance based on my own seams, which were admittedly more like 1/2″ rather than 1/4″.  I’m also going to invest in some pinking shears.  The only issue that I had with this pattern and template was that you should pink around the body as well since it is very bulky once it is turned inside out (of course … that could also be my seam allowance!).

Pink bunny was just in time for my friend Peter who is experiencing some troubles.

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin’, Easter’s on its way

Bringin’ every girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter bright and gay

He’s got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There’s an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin’, Easter’s on its way

Try to do the things you should
Maybe if you’re extra good
He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way

You’ll wake up on Easter mornin’
And you’ll know that he was there
When you find those chocolate bunnies
That he’s hiding everywhere

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day

Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day

Hoppy Easter, everyone!
