Holy Cow!

How in the world are we in April already and Easter is here in four days?

Are you ready for Easter?

Our kitchen makeover took all of the time I had for decorating so this year the only room that got some Easter love was my entry!

 

 What about you?

Do you have any special traditions that you do every year?

Do you eat a special meal?

We are going to have a simple and hopefully meaningful day.

In our home we do the Easter Egg Hunt on a Saturday so on Sunday we focus our thoughts and dedicate the day to think about the life of our Savior and the meaning of his resurrection.

I am excited to have a peaceful Sunday and spend the day with my husband and kiddos.

 

Anyways, today I am sharing the tutorial of my Easter Pillow and the little bunny just in case you missed it a few weeks ago

when I shared it over at Tatertots & Jello.

 

This pillow and little bunny were super easy to make.

I want you to know that I’m not that good when in comes to sewing so if I was able to make this project I am sure you will too.

You’ll need fabric and ribbon.

 

 

 

TUTORIAL

1

After you cut and iron your fabric the first thing you will need to do is to trace the shape of the bunny.

{ My fabric was 15 x 25 inches and I folded it in half }

I found my template over at Yonnie At Home.

I placed the fabric right on top of my computer screen and with a pencil I traced the shape.

 

 

This is how it looked at this point.

 

 

2

With an exacto knife I carefully cut right on top of the traced shape.

Make sure you put under the fabric a cutting board to protect the surface where you are working on and

please be careful not to cut your fingers.

 

 

After you cut out the bunny you will have these two pieces.

Cut your second fabric and put it under the cut shape.

Pin the two fabric together so it is easier to work with as you sew them.

Time to sew!

When I was done sewing the two pieces together I turned the pillow around and I cut the excess blue fabric.

I was almost done at this point all I had left was to sew the other sides together and insert the pillow.

 

 

 

Time to Make the Little Bunny!

Then I remembered I had the white fabric bunny cut-out.

I just cut another piece of fabric, sewed it together and after I was done sewing I trimmed the extra fabric matching the shape of the original bunny.

 

My Anni helped me to fill it up.

 

After a few final stitches to completely close the bunny I was finished with both projects.

 

 

 

You can use this same technique for any other Holiday or occasion.

Just change the image for whatever you want and there you can have your own pillow.
