You need:

Selected cotton fabrics
Matching thread
Bunny template, printed using a Brother printer
Rice, dried lavender flowers, dried cloves or dried star anise
Brother sewing machine
Small lengths of ribbon

Instructions

  1. Print out the bunny template and use scissors to cut it out just outside the dotted line.
  2. Either fold a piece of fabric in half, or lay two pieces of contrasting fabric on top of each other with the reverse sides together.
  3. Pin the template onto the fabric and cut out around the edge.
  4. Starting at the bottom paw, use your Brother sewing machine set to a straight stich, to sew around the edge of the bunny. Leave the bottom of the rabbit, between the two paws unsewn. Allow a 2cm seam.
  5. Select zigzag stich and sew around the outside edge of the bunny.
  6. Without cutting the straight edge seam, carefully snip into the fabric corners.
  7. Turn the bunny the right way around and fill with a mix of rice and lavender flowers, dried cloves or star anise.
  8. Fold in the unsewn flap between the rabbit’s two bottom paws and press flat. Sew along this edge to seal.
  9. Trim any loose threads and decorate with a ribbon tied at the neck.
