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:
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…
and cut out a front and back piece, with extra seam allowance…
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.
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.
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.
Fill with rice and sew the hole shut.
Sneak these cute little bunnies into your kiddos’ Easter baskets and give them a cute little friend to remember this miraculous holiday by.
