  • fabric

  • large pompom
  • scissor
  • needle and thread
  • sewing machine

Print out one of my free bunny templates or choose another bunny template that you’ll like. Cut out two bunny shapes, and one long strip of fabric – as long as the outline of the bunny shape.

Sew together one of the bunny shapes and the long fabric strip with a straight stitch.

How To Sew A Bunny Pillow

The bunny pillow is a great way to use up fabric scraps: the green striped fabric was a kitchen towel before, and the pink striped fabric is leftover from a summer skirt and my 1900s maid’s dress. Because the pink striped fabric is very thin, I used white cotton as lining.

Now sew the other bunny shape to the fabric strip. It’s not necessary to finish the raw edges.
