A photo tutorial
Make this cute Easter Bunny puppet with her pocket for eggs.
You will need:
A bunny template , feel free to copy this.
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.
Cut around the pattern.
Cut out these shapes from the felt. Set aside.
Mark the position of the eyes on one piece.
Push the eyes through a white felt circle
Do the same on the other side so you have two eyes fixed on the front of the puppet.
Eyes snapped in position.
Now finish the face using the felt shapes cut out earlier.Glue down.
Now sew the pink shapes onto the ears.
Ears and face all done.
Seam all around the pocket piece edges to neaten.
Pin and sew the pocket in position.
Now pin right sides together and sew around the edges leaving the bottom free
Sewing the puppet together
Clip the curves to ease movement.
Turn inside out.
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.
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!
