Use up your fabric scraps to make an adorable no-sew fabric bunny!
Last week I started working on my Spring crafts. I made some really cute and easy carrots out of paper bags.
I thought they looked kind of lonely on the shelf all by themselves, so I decided to make a cute little no-sew fabric bunny to go with them.
And I enjoyed making this bunny so much that I plan to make some more as soon as I get a chance!
This easy DIY is also part of this month’s Spring upcycle challenge hosted by Terrie from Decorate & More with Tip. Be sure to check out her blog for some fun inspiration ideas!

What you need:
- Fabric scraps
- Bunny template (here)
- Cotton ball
- Rotary cutter or scissors
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
What you do:
First, you’ll need to print and cut out the bunny template.
Next, take a piece of fabric and fold it in half. Or you can use two different colors. Either way, you’ll need 2 pieces on top of each other.
Lay the bunny template on top of the fabric. Pin it down so it doesn’t move while you’re cutting it. (FYI – I had to use sewing needles because I couldn’t get to my pins! lol!)
Cut around the bunny template with a rotary cutter or scissors. I use a rotary cutter just because it’s easier for me.
You should have 2 pieces of bunny-shaped fabric.
If you accidentally cut through the ear as I did, it’s no big deal. It’s going to be glued together anyway.
Lay the fabric pieces together with the wrong sides facing each other.
Start gluing the ears first, but don’t glue all the way around just yet. Add a tiny bit of Poly-fil to the ears. Be careful not to stuff too much or it will just come apart.
I used a chopstick to carefully push the stuffing into the ears.
Now all you have to do is just keep gluing and stuffing!
Once you get to the bottom, leave a little hole to make sure you’re satisfied with the stuffing. If not, add a little more. Once you’re satisfied with the amount of stuffing, glue the hole shut.
Grab a cotton ball and cut it in half. Use the hot glue to glue the cotton ball half to the no-sew fabric bunny.
That’s it! The no-sew fabric bunny is complete!
