- white and pink fleece, minky or felt (I have used fleece for this tutorial)
- cotton or more fleece or minky for the blankie
- 2 black beads
- white and black thread
Cut the pieces:
Download the free pattern here, print it and cut the pieces. You will get:
- 2 pieces for the head
- 2 white pieces for the ears
- 2 pink pieces for the ears
- 2 muzzles (white)
- 2 paw (white)
- 1 nose (pink)
- 2 10x10 inches of fleece/felt piece for the blankie (you can also make one of this pieces out of cotton like I did for this tutorial)
- Take one white and one pink piece for the ears together, right sides facing and sew along the curved edges, leaving the straight edge open. Turn the ears right side out.
- Place the ears over the right side of one piece for the head, align the open edge of the ears to the top edge of the head. Stitch to attach the ears to the head. Lay the other piece of the head, right side down. Sew along the curved edge, leaving the straight edge open. Turn right side out.
- Stuff the head with cotton and close the opening.
- Take needle and thread (white) and make long stitches along the edges of the muzzles, stuff with cotton and close. Repeat this step to make the paws and nose.
- Use your fingers to pinch about 1 cm in the middle of the head and sew from side to side (as shown in the picture below) to create the "orbit" of the eyes, you will sew the beads there.
- Sew the nose it in the middle of the face. Then sew the muzzles one next to each other right below the nose. Sew the beads in the eyes.
- Wrap the black thread around the paw to make the fingers.
- Sew the paws on the sides, under the head.
- Use needle and black thread to make the whiskers.
- Next you have to make the blankie by taking the fleece and cotton fabric together, right sides facing, sew along the sides leaving a 2 inches opening. Turn the blankie right side out though the opening, sleep stitch to close it and then top stitch along the edge (this last step is optional).
- Finally sew the bunny to the blankie and it's done!

This is SO CUTE. I love bunnies, and would totally make this for any future nieces (or nephews!) I may have.

This is an absolutely adorable bunny blankie and the instructions are super! My first thought was the safety of the tiny buttons for the eyes, and then I read the other comments and saw a similar concern. The embroidered eyes is a good idea, but you could also use some non-toxic fabric markers or paint to dab them on as well. Of course anything like this a baby could put in their mouth, so you do need to be safe, and this would make such a cute baby gift!

This is super cute and been meaning to make one but have not yet.This post makes it look so easy with the instructions you give. I will be making many for gifts for new babies. I love the bunny but would like to make different animals for the top. I have been thinking of cutting the head of old stuff animal off and sealing off hole and attaching to the top of blanket. Has anyone tried this yet? Does it work. Thanks for idea.

If you can find the safety eyes use them.Because the embroidery french knot doesn't work to well either.they keep coming undone,and doesn't look good. Finally made four small knots to make one eye,not bad. Even used different weights of thread. And I'm pretty picky how things look. My little great-grandson loves it and that's what counts. Thanks for the pattern.

Unfortunatly you chose to use beads as opposed to safty eyes. That's a big bobo

I agree and think a french knot (embroidery) would be better.
