Fabric Bunnies Tutorial | Optimistic Mommy

We’ve been “hopping” with lots of Spring and Easter crafts lately. 😉 This Friday is no different! Check out these super cute, and super easy to make fabric bunnies! They require just a few supplies and only a few minutes to put together! These are perfect to go along with your Easter/Spring display, or make smaller ones to put in your children’s Easter baskets!


  • Fabric cut into square pieces (the bunnies pictured are from 6″ and 9″ squares)
  • Needle & thread
  • Poly-fil stuffing
  • Yarn pom poms

Begin by hand stitching across the fabric, a little more than half way up. Stitch at an angle to the top, center of the fabric and then back down to where you started.

Pull thread tight, gathering the fabric into a ball. Fill the ball that is created with the stuffing to create the head of the bunny. Draw the thread tighter to close the opening and knot.

Fold the loose part of the fabric over the head and stitch the two edges together inside out to create the body of the bunny.

Turn the body right side out and fill with stuffing. With the needle and thread, draw the opening closed and knot.

Attach the yarn pom pom to the backside of the bunny for the tail.

Tip: You could add a washer or a bag of rice to the inside of the bunny body to give it weight if you choose.
