You will need:
Poster board or lightweight cardboard
Freezer or Butcher Paper
Scraps of felted wool
Small amount of Wool Roving
Small amount of polyfil
Trace this pattern and cut out of lightweight cardboard.
Trace onto freezer paper, two of body, two of head and one of blanket.
I flipped the head, but that is not necessary if your wool is the same on both sides.
Iron onto wool with the wax side down, hot setting on iron and no steam.
Cut out pieces and blanket stitch the blanket onto one piece of the body.
Beginning at the right side of the blanket start stitching down the top of the back and around the foot area.
Sew the button on and then stitch up to the middle of the bottom and stuff that side with polyfil.
Finish stitching around, repeating adding the button to the other side, leave a small opening at the blanket and finish stuffing the other leg and close up the opening.
Stitch the head and ear starting at the yellow pin and you will finish at the white pin,
you will want to stuff this as you go and indicated in the next three pictures.
Position the head on the body and blanket stitch it to the front and then not breaking the thread
blanket stitch the back area down also.
I made french knots for the eyes, but you could also use a small bead for the eyes.
You can tell in the pictures, but I pulled the thread through to make the eye pull in and knotted it.
With a small amount of wool roving, felt a small ball into the a little ball for the tail.
Felt it right onto the bunny for a tail.
You could also stitch a little face on the bunnies. I did that on some, not on others.
Please use this pattern as you wish, however don't take the pattern as your own.
