Pocket Bunny Tutorial

Pocket Bunny Tutorial at DoingSplendid.com I made this darling pocket bunny for my niece for her birthday, but think it would be a fabulous addition to any Easter basket. I found the pattern for the bunny at Martha Stewart and got the idea to add a pocket to this sweet little pocket bunny at Alice and Lois. Such great sites and so many cute ideas!

Now I’m sure that you have someone that would love a pocket bunny of their own, so I put together a little tutorial for you.

Materials needed:

  • 1/3 yard fabric for the bunny
  • scraps of fabric for the pocket and ears
  • stuffed animal filling (affiliate link)
  • acrylic paint
  • sewing machine and supplies (thread, needle, etc.)

To make your own pocket bunny, you’ll first want to print out the pattern at Martha Stewart (the link above will take you there). Cut out the pattern and all the fabric pieces. Then cut out a 4×4 inch square for the pocket.
