Taking the stress out of your child's annual celebrations!

A photo tutorial

Easter bunny puppet

Make this cute Easter Bunny puppet with her pocket for eggs.

You will need:

Bunny puppet pattern

A bunny template , feel free to copy this.

Materials to make puppet

Safety eyes, scraps of white and pink felt, scrap of material for pocket and two pieces of white fabric or felt for body

White knitting yarn, some pillow stuffing.

Scissors, glue and something to sew with, in my case a sewing machine. You can of course hand sew if you wish.

Step 1: Trace out the pattern and use it to lay on top of your two pieces of white fabric.

Pin it down.

Step 2:

Cut around the pattern.

Step 3:

Cut out these shapes from the felt. Set aside.

Step 4:

Mark the position of the eyes on one piece.

Step 5:

Push the eyes through a white felt circle

Step 6:

Step 7:

Do the same on the other side so you have two eyes fixed on the front of the puppet.

 

Eyes snapped in position.

Step 7:

Now finish the face using the felt shapes cut out earlier.Glue down.

 

Step 8:

Now sew the pink shapes onto the ears.

Ears and face all done.

Step 9:

Seam all around the pocket piece edges to neaten.

Pin and sew the pocket in position.

Step 10:

Now pin right sides together and sew around the edges leaving the bottom free

Sewing the puppet together

Step 11:

Clip the curves to ease movement.

Turn inside out.

Step 12:

Draw an oval the size of the head on two scrap pieces, sew around leaving an opening for stuffing.

Now stuff with pillow stuffing and sew up the hole.

Step 13:

Stuff the ears lightly with pillow stuffing and push up the head pillow into the head space.

Step 14: Almost done! Making the pompom for the tail.

Wind some white yarn around two fingers

Tie tightly in the middle

Trim pompom to shape and sew to bunny's bottom.

The finished tail.

You are now all done! Enjoy your Easter Bunny Puppet!

A perfect gift for someone special. Remember to fill that pocket with Chocolate Eggs!
