Drop Cloth No-Sew Bunnies

Are you ready for a little Spring? It started yesterday and I am more than ready for it! These little bunnies are the cutest little things and there is no sewing involved! You heard that right, no need to drag out the sewing machine!

The first thing I did to make these little cuties was to draw and cut out a bunny silhouette on copy paper.

If you are not an artist, and most people are not,  just Google bunny silhouette and print one out. 

Make these bunnies any size you want!

Make several different sizes!

Once you have your silhouette cut out, place it on a folded piece of fabric. 

I used painter's drop cloth fabric because first of all it's cheap, and secondly, I love neutrals and this fabric has texture and a beautiful oatmeal color! 

Next, you're going to trace around the bunny silhouette on your doubled fabric.

I drew around the bunny about 1/4" away from the paper.

I used a fine line marker, don't use a fat marker, you're going to cut off the marker and the thinnest marker line works best.

So now, using pinking shears, cut on your marker line. 

Now you will have 2 bunnies.

With a hot glue gun, go around the edge of your silhouette leaving the bottom open. 

Now using Poly-fil stuffing and a chopstick, stuff your bunny from the opening at the bottom.

Use a chopstick to make sure to get the stuffing all the way up into the ears. 

Don't use too much stuffing, you want them to be soft and squishy.

You're only going to lightly stuff the bunny to give it a little puffiness. 

If you don't have Poly-fil you can use the stuffing from an old pillow.

If you want to add a stick to the bunny, put a little bit of hot glue on one of the chopsticks and glue it to the inside.

Now close the bottom edge with more hot glue making sure not to get any stuffing in the way of your glue. 

Add a gingham bow, mine came from Dollar Tree, and you're done!
