How to Make a Farmhouse Bunny
I love blue and white ticking, which is so very farmhouse chic. Check out this neutral pumpkin pillow that I made out of drop cloth and ticking. I just knew that my bunny would look great made of ticking.
Farmhouse Bunny Supplies:
- 1 piece of cardboard (I used a cereal box)
- about 1/4 yard of cotton ticking fabric
- fiber fill
- sewing machine
- paper scissors and fabric scissors
- straight pins
- needle and thread
- lace ribbon
- 1 white pom pom
Draw a bunny shape onto the cardboard with a sharpie. I did mine freehand, but feel free to use a template. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
Cut out the cardboard bunny pattern with paper scissors.
With right sides together, put the bunny pattern on top of the ticking fabric and trace the design.
Cut out the bunny design with fabric scissors.
Pin the bunny with straight pins and machine stitch the bunny together using a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Leave an opening about 5 inches wide. If you don’t have a sewing machine, feel free to hand sew.
Turn the bunny right side out through the opening.
Stuff the bunny with fiber fill.
Hand sew the opening shut.
Tie a big lace bow around the bunny’s neck and you’re done!
Because I wanted a neutral farmhouse look, I styled my bunny in a white basket on a bed of raffia. He’s surrounded by book page eggs that are left over from my Easter Tablescape Inspired by Books.
Now it’s time to check out what my creative friends have been up to! Next on the hop is Patti from Hearth and Vine. You’re going to love her beautiful galvanized hanging planter!
Have a great day!
