I received a request for a tute for her, so I thought I'd have a go.
You will need:
The Lil' Miss Bunny Pattern (Down load her here.)
2 complementary fabrics (I use corduroy and a light weight cotton.)
1 scrap fabric suitable for a tail (I use fleece.)
sewing machine (You can hand sew her, but I use a machine.)
hand sewing needle
chop stick (or some other long thin object.)
embroidery floss in 2 colors ( I used navy for the eyes and pink for the nose.)
Now that her face is done, it's time to work on her arms, legs and ears. Match together two two arm (or leg- they are interchangeable) pieces right sides together and sew with an 1/8" seam allowance around the pieces leaving the flat end open.
Make sure and do both ears!
Now it's time to figure out where you want to place your ears. Mess round with them until you are happy with the look. Here are a few options:
Once you have one arm in add the other. Yes, she's going to be rather stuffed. As long as you keep pinning you won't have anything to worry about when it comes time to sew her, I promise!!
Keep pinning around her body, again, like the ears, making sure that her arms stay clear of your soon to be seam.
Then squish in the edges like this:
Hand stitch it so that it becomes a little ball like this:
The back side.
The front side. See? Little cotton tail. :)
Now trim off the excess fabric from the back.
Once you have sewn up the whole gap, you will have the issue of tying the end off. I don't like to have a string hanging down, so I take the end of the string out a leg or out the side body. That way you can hid the string. Just pull it a little farther out, so that when you cut it it will pull back inside the bunny's leg, like this:
Snip off that string and you are done!! She's ready to be loved and squeezed by your little one!
