Cute, fun and rather addictive. Welcome to the strange world of the Easter bunny…
You might just have a few days to spare over the Easter break. Hurrah!
The trouble is, the weather forecast isn’t as good as it might be, so what better way of indulging in your favourite pursuit than getting out the sewing machine and trying some Easter bunny projects?
You’d better get moving – there are only a few days to go. So enjoy these fun and even downright wacky sewing projects…
Easter bunny bags tutorial
An excellent place to start is the Jude Designs website. These lovely bags are a great way to present a gift to friends and family – especially if they’re a fan of chocolate (don’t get us started…).
A very detailed and straightforward how-to with plenty of wonderfully clear images.
There’s a useful ear template to download, helping with one of the trickiest parts of the project.
Be aware: if the ears aren’t right it will look very strange – hence the template!
Bunny face bag tutorial
This is one we’ve used ourselves – the excellent Bunny face bag project on the always entertaining Sew Very blog.
It’s quite simple, but you do need to pay close attention to this one. There’s a free template to download, but you will need to register first.
Alternatively, try out your own templates by making the key parts in paper first and trying them out. You may find that your first couple of attempts look rather strange, but stick with it and you will be able to make this project your own.
Top tip: the positioning of the eyes is particularly important!
Roly poly fabric easter bunnies
Another one where the tiniest eyes and mouth detail can make the difference between “cute” and “strange” – and we much prefer the former!
This lovely project comes courtesy of the Flamingo Toes creative blog by Beverly McCullough.
Simple and straightforward, the tutorial photos are lovely – and you’ll just keep smiling every time you look at all those bunny faces!
Be warned – these things are addictive and we can’t quite work out why.
When you’ve made one, you’ll quite like the idea of making another – and another…
Spring bunny tutorial
We love the Sew Mamma Sew website – and the latest project to excite us came with this Spring bunny how-to.
A free downloadable template gives you a very sound start (just click – no need to register to download). Be aware that the templates do not include a seam allowance – so you can make bunnies of varying sizes from the same pattern by enlarging or reducing the original file to suit.
We suspect that these may become addictive…
