DIY Plush Bunny Stuffie

Sharing is caring!

I created this tutorial, How to Sew a DIY Plush Bunny Stuffie that your Kids will Love! My niece loves all types of stuffed animals, or as they are now known, stuffies!  (I always love learning new things from the kiddos in my life). As a beginning sewing project since I am just learning how to create, construct and sew simple patterns.  Filled with Poly-Fil® for maximum huggability! This project is perfect for Easter and takes about an hour to complete.

Here’s what you will need to Sew a Plush Bunny Pillow:

Here’s how to sew a Bunny Butt Pillow:

STEP ONE

To begin the DIY Plush Bunny Stuffie, gather all supplies. Download and print Bunny Pillow Patterns below ⇓ then tape both pages together to create a full-size template. Cut out patterns with scissors. Trace two bodies and four ears onto the back of the plush fleece fabric with a permanent marker. Cut out all patterns with scissors.

STEP TWO

Pin the right sides of each set of ears together. I like to use large straight pins with big, colorful heads for heavyweight or plush fabric, so they can be easily seen and removed.

Then sew using a long stitch, and a 1/4″ seam edge. Leave the bottom edge of both ears open, so they can be turned right side out.

Clip stray threads, remove straight pins and then turn the ears right side out. In pairs, twist eight white chenille stems together at the top, creating four sets total, and insert two sets into each ear. Use a chopstick or pencil to move them in position around the edge of the ears. The chenille stems will provide some structure for the Bunny ears once assembled.

STEP THREE

Line up Bunny’s body, right sides of fabric facing in.  Position the ears along the INSIDE TOP edge of the Bunny body and secure them with straight pins.

Leave a four-inch section open at the bottom. This opening will be used later for turning and stuffing.

Sew around the perimeter of the Bunny’s body using a long stitch. Due to the thickness, push down on the fabric with your fingers as it feeds through the machine. Remember to leave a four-inch opening at the bottom of the Bunny’s body.

STEP FOUR

Clip stray threads, remove straight pins and then turn the Bunny pillow right side out through the opening at the bottom.

STEP FIVE

The secret to creating a soft and huggable Bunny is Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World™ which has a smooth consistency that won’t bunch and is non-allergenic. Take fist-sized pieces of Poly-Fil® and starting at the top, stuff the entire Bunny body. I used my fingers and hands to distribute the stuffing evenly.

STEP SIX

Once completely stuffed, thread an embroidery needle with sewing thread and whip stitch the opening closed using fairly tiny stitches. The nice thing about this super plush fabric is that the texture totally hides all of the stitches!

Create a four-inch pom pom from bulky white yarn. I love using the Red Heart Pom Pom Maker, but you can definitely roll old school and use a rectangle of cardboard.  Tie off the pom pom and trim it to a sphere shape. To finish, stitch the pom pom tail onto the bottom back of the Bunny’s body.

Here is the completed DIY Plush Bunny Stuffie that I completed in just one hour. He’s all business in the front and party in the back! Being fairly new to sewing I took my time for each step and didn’t rush through the process. Taking it slow definitely lowers the number of mistakes I tend to make.
