HOW TO MAKE A BUNNY PILLOW
MAKE A BUNNY PATTERN
I found my bunny outline at Sun Catcher Studio. On their website, you can enter the size of the bunny you want to download and print. They have instructions for printing options, also.
My pattern was printed out on 4 sheets of paper which I taped together.
Cut the pattern out so you can trace it on drop cloth.
PREPARE THE DROP CLOTH
Since I’m upcycling my drop cloth fabric that is used when we paint, I washed and dried the piece that I cut off.
There are different weights of drop cloth fabric and I chose to use our lighter weight one versus the one that felt heavier and stiffer.
BEGIN GLUEING AND STUFFING THE BUNNY
The easiest way to assemble the bunny pillow is to glue and stuff in sections.
- 1st section – ears
- 2nd section – head
- 3rd section – body
- 4th section – feet
- 5th section – bottom
Stack and line up the bunny pieces on top of each other.
I used the Surebonder glue gun with the detail tip which puts out a thin line of glue. It’s perfect for this project since it doesn’t put out big blobs like a regular glue gun.
Run a bead of glue beside the inside edge and complete around the ear. Press down on top of the fabric to ensure a seal.
Now, work on stuffing the ears.
This prevents your bunny pillow from looking clumpy once completed. Do this each time before you add more stuffing.
Begin pushing the stuffing up in the ear.
Use your fingers and a pencil end to arrange the stuffing in each section.
Now, glue and stuff the head, then continue like so for the rest of the sections.
When you have completed the bunny feet sections, glue a little more along the bottom, but leave an opening so you have enough room to complete the stuffing.
Once you get close to completing, glue half of the hole together, continue stuffing then seal the hole closed.
I hope I’ve inspired you to make a no-sew drop cloth bunny pillow. It’s easy and fun to make!
It’s time for another monthly Sustainable Craft Challenge, where my blogger friends and I create an eco-friendly project which we “use it up,” recycle, or upcycle a craft or home decor. Our March theme is “soft.” Be sure to click the links at the end of my post to see many more “soft” decor and craft ideas!
