Stitched Bunny Craft
Spring Stitched Bunny Craft
Take a bit of yarn and some bunny cutouts and do a fun activity for spring or Easter with this stitched bunny craft! Stitching is one of those lost arts or at least fading, I find that kids actually do enjoy this activity though and I think it should really be introduced to them as a fundamental skill to learn and know. Start with paper bunnies with pre-punched holes to make it a bit easier for small hands!
Here’s a quick tutorial for putting these paper bunnies together, it’s a fun and easy activity to do with the kids plus you’re practicing fine motor skills which is really important. As an art teacher I see a lot of older kids having trouble with their craftsmanship of small details. With some practice they’ll get better and better preparing them for executing more complicated tasks. So grab your materials and make these fantastic stitched bunnies for hanging or giving as gifts this spring season!
Step 1. I cut my bunnies using the Cricut machine but you can trace a pattern or use pre-cut shapes found at the craft store. Then layer your vellum shape on top of the solid shape and punch holes around the perimeter.
Step 2. Thread your needle with yarn and start stitching, I used a running stitch, which means you thread in an up and down pattern.
Step 3. Stop before you get to the end and stuff the bunny with some shredded paper, be careful you don’t want to rip the vellum or paper.
These turned out really nice! I plan to hang them as decoration for Easter! You can stuff these bunnnies with things you have like chunky glitter, feathers for color, shredded paper, scraps of felt, tissue paper or candies like jelly beans!

I just purchase a few of your downloadables. Is there, or can you offer, a Rubik's cube without the color? I think my Math genius 9-year old grandson would love figuring out how to color it in properly. Thanks! -- Proud Nana
