Pattern Release and FREE tutorial!

Time to dust off the blog to bring you a free tutorial on how to make an Easter bunny from my new mouse pattern!  You can purchase my mouse pattern HERE!

Start by making the ear.  Trace your middle finger to the top of the second knuckle.

At the bottom of the ear, taper it in 1/4" on each side.

Cut out the ear shape out of felt.

Add it to your mouse/bunny head.

For the dress, cut out two rectangles 5 1/2"x 5".  Cut one in half to measure 5"x 2 3/4".

Sew the smaller rectangles to the bigger one creating a side seam.  1" from the top make a 3/4" opening for the arm holes.  Repeat with the other side.

Press seams open.

 Top stitch the opening with a small 1/8" allowance.  Repeat with other arm hole.

Press and hem the side and bottom of the dress 1/4" around.

Press and sew down the top 1/2" to make the casing for the string. 

Add some fancy string/ribbon/ric-rac.

Cinch it in!

Tie it up.

And finished!  A cute little Easter bunny!
