Kids can never have too many toys, right?! Perhaps the parents would not agree with this since they are the ones who usually do the cleaning up after playtime and also have to pay for them. But ask any kid and their answer would definitely be yes. Since your kid is always right, we bring you this amazing Rabbit sewing pattern, for you to sew your kid their own soft toy.
To sew this cute little bunny, with a finished size of approximately 20 inches (50 cm), you will only need to have basic sewing skills. Sewing is made very simple as your rabbit is not jointed and that gives your rabbit a softer “raggedy” look.
The PDF pattern is detailed and the step-by-step well-illustrated instructions are easy to follow. No scaling is required since the pattern is full-sized. A seam allowance is already added so you don`t have to worry about that too, which is great.
The Rabbit pattern also includes a full list of the materials that you require. We have listed those below. All you need to do is to click on the button below and then download, print and cut out the pattern.
If you don`t know which fabric you want to use to make your Kooka Rabbit then this is not really a problem, because you can make your little bunny with any fabric you want. Cotton, linen, plush, minky… the options are so various. Use your creativity and make the rabbit as you desire.
The designer used wool felt for a warm huggable old fashioned feel, but as already mentioned, you can use whichever fabric you want.
Crafty Kooka is an authentic cottage industry and all their sewing patterns are carefully developed over weeks and sometimes months, with continual modifications, and improvements until it’s up to the highest standard. They design and test all their own patterns in their workshop in rural Ireland.
For sewing this cute Rabbit you will need:
Main fabric: half-metre of quilting cotton (which is typically 112cm wide) would suffice – or 2 fat quarters, the rabbit looks gorgeous in cotton, linen, fleece, denim, corduroy, even baby clothes as a memory rabbit – the largest pattern piece is approximately 15cm by 30cm, so you can use small cuts of fabric you have in your stash.
Accent fabric: 20cm by 52cm (8″ by 20″) (for the footpads and inside ears).
