DIY Stuffed Bunny

See how to make this darling DIY Stuffed Bunny for a sweet Easter gift! 

DIY stuffed-bunny on aliceandlois.comI could not resist making a stuffed bunny for Harper’s Easter basket this year. What could be cuter than a little bunny made from modern designer fabric?! I started making my own pattern for the bunny and then stumbled onto Martha Stewart’s stuffed menswear bunny. I printed her pattern but wanted to add a little something to the front to make it special.

I had this amazing gray and white modern fabric that works perfectly for this bunny.

How to make a DIY Stuffed Bunny

I followed Martha’s tutorial but made a few changes to add a pocket on the front to make it extra special. Harper still loves to keep little treasures in little purses and pouches so I wanted to add a little place for her! I also simplified the face of the bunny by using fabric paint to add the eyes and nose instead of embroidery thread. I was so happy with how the bunny turned out!

  1. Love this! I was going to try to do my own pattern for the kids easter basket, this just made my task a lot easier. Thank you!

  2. This is an adorable bunny pattern thanks so much for sharing.


  4. I love this little rabbit but once again Martha makes her patterns very wasteful, why does she have to use 4 pieces of paper and have us fit the parts together in a most ridiculous way?!
    thanks I do appreciate a free Pattern but she could have put the whole pattern on 2 pieces of paper.

  5. I was wondering if this bunny can be made with 4 way stretch knit with cotton lycra ??

    1. Hi pam – I do not see why the stretch knit would not work. Good luck and happy sewing. =)

  6. I just made one out of a soft gray print fleece with pink and white striped flannel for the ears and the pocket. I added an oversized poof tail made of gathered pink bridal lace and put a little stuffed felt heart in the pocket. It’s really cute, I do say so myself. I hope the little girl likes it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I made these several years ago. I no longer have the pattern, will you make yours available?
    thank you

  8. Thanks so much for the wonderful instructions and pictures. My 13 yr old daughter is working thru a beginner’s sewing class at our library. She desperately wanted to make some bunnies for a few of her little cousins. This was exactly what we needed – simple, easy, and super cute.
