This may be the cutest felt craft I have ever seen! Easter is my favorite holiday and I love to decorate the entire house. When my kids were younger we started doing holiday themed felt crafts so that they could decorate their rooms as well. I think this Happy Bunny in Egg Pouch, Easter craft project is just so sweet.
I have provided great photographed step by step instructions to make this craft simple for you to duplicate. Keep reading till you get to the bottom and you will also find a printable template.
List of Supplies:
- Felt fabric – 4-5 different colors
- Craft glue or fabric glue
- Needle and thread
- Pink highlighter
- Pencil – for tracing template
- Template cut outs
Prepare your template by printing and cutting out the patterns. Use a pencil to trace the patterns on the selected felt fabrics and cut them out of the felt carefully.
The bunny plushie has 2 parts, 1 front and 1 back. Take the front part and use a dark thread to stitch the face details of the bunny.
Done stitching the face details? Use a pink highlighter to create blush shades on both cheeks of the bunny. Also prepare needle and thread to join the front part of the bunny with the back part. You can start your stitching from anywhere but keep in mind to keep a small opening for stuffing.
Using the left over felt pieces for the stuffing is the best. Cut the left over felt pieces into smaller pieces and push them inside the bunny through its open end. Use the pencil to push the stuffing towards the head part of the bunny.
When you’re satisfied with the stuffing you can simply close the open end and tie 2 tight knots; cut off extra thread.
The Egg pouch has 2 parts, 1 full egg pattern and 1 about half. Place the smaller part on the top of the larger part and match their bottom ends. Prepare needle and thread to join both parts together. You can do running stitch or flat blanket stitch to join the pieces.
Keep the top side of the smaller part open. Once you are done stitching the sides tie a tight knot and trim extra thread. To attach the heart patterns on the pouch you can either stitch them or use craft glue, however you want.
You can add more details to the bunny or pouch, the possibilities to decorate them are endless! Have fun!
