Sewing Easter bunnies is effortless and a great little project for sewing beginners. After the pattern is printed, cut out of felt each of the front and back.
You can sew them by hand or sewing machine. The eye-catcher is a bow made of satin or woven ribbon, which you sew on the front of the bunny.

Material for sewing the bunny egg warmer :
You can sew the egg warmers from either craft felt or boiled wool. Craft felt has the advantage of being much more dimensionally stable than woolen felt. To compensate for this disadvantage, the rabbit’s head and ears are padded with some filling material.
I used boiled for my eggwarmers because I had a remnant of a sewn jacket in my closet.
- Gray craft felt or boiled wool
- optional: bow made of woven ribbon or satin
- optional: filling material
- sewing machine
- sewing yarn
- fabric scissor
Cutting the bunny
Using the cut out template, cut a front and back for the bunny.
The best way to cut is with sharp scissors. If you don’t want to cut directly around the paper, draw the design on the fabric beforehand.
Place the front and back on top of each other and fasten with pins.
Set a zigzag stitchwith stitch width 5.5 and stitch length 2.5 on the sewing machine. Especially with boiled wool, you should not choose the stitch length too small, because otherwise the fabric will not be transported properly during sewing and will stretch out.
Sew the bunnies all around with zigzag stitch.
Fill with filling material.
Carefully stuff the ears and head with a little filling material.
If you stuff it with too much, the bunny will quickly get unsightly bumps.
In the last step you can decorate the bunnies with a bow. Sew a bow of satin or woven ribbon on the neck of the bunny with a few hand stitches.
In one hour you can make about 2 – 4 eggwarmers, depending on how fast you work. It is also a nice project for sewing beginners to gain more experience.
