HOW TO MAKE A BUNNY PILLOW

1 – 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.

2 – 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.

Place the bunny pattern on top of the drop cloth and trace out two bunnies using a pencil. Use sharp scissors to cut them out.

3 – 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.

Grab a palmful of Poly-fil stuffing and begin pulling it apart several times to loosen it up.

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.

4 – ADD EMBELLISHMENT

I used just a simple tie of jute twine but you can choose another option, such as, making a bow of shredded fabric strips, glueing on small faux flowers, make and add drop cloth rosettes, etc..

  1. Allyson, I love this bunny. Drop cloths are so versatile to use for so many projects, but I never thought of a bunny pillow. I cannot sew to save my life, so this is right up my alley! Thank you for sharing your inspiration with Whimsy Home Wednesday!

  2. I love using drop cloth, but haven’t in a while. Thank you for inspiring me with your darling bunny pillow! pinning -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. Love this no sew bunny pillow! A simple but very pretty and festive craft for Easter or anytime! I love the drop cloth as I use a lot of that type of material in many projects but I think I’m going to try your project in denim too! Thanks for the very detailed instructions…so helpful! Pinning!

  4. So cute! I love the country chic look your bunny pillow has and it looks SO quick and easy to make. You really don’t have to spend a lot of money to create beautiful things.

    1. Gail, thank you! Yes, it was a breeze to make. The hardest part was finding areas on the drop cloth that weren’t covered in paint droplets – lol
