Rice Bunnies

I figured my boys could use some more friends for Bunny & Clyde this year and after seeing Dana’s Peeps Bunting, and pondering on it for a while, this is what came to mind:DSCN5257
Rice bunnies! You know the rice bags that you heat up for a sore tummy…or bean bags for throwing around?
I drew up this bunny pattern… image0-1
and cut out a front and back piece, with extra seam allowance…DSCN5249
Then I sewed the pieces together with wrong sides together. I sewed around the bunny twice to give a little extra protection from rice leakage, making sure to leave a gap big enough to pour rice in.DSCN5252
I took scissors and cut into the seam every 1/4 inch or so, all the way around the bunny. This will give the bunny a fun, frayed edge.DSCN5251
I chose to put my bunnies in the wash to expedite the fraying process, but kids will do that well enough in time too :) Use a marker, embroidery thread, or fabric paint and put a cute little face on your bunny.DSCN5254
Fill with rice and sew the hole shut.DSCN5256
Sneak these cute little bunnies into your kiddos’ Easter baskets and give them a cute little friend to remember this miraculous holiday by.

  5. I love this idea! Have a grandchild coming this spring and this would be a great gift idea because it won't be long before he's walking around and getting bumps!
