I’m not sure if you know this, but I went to school for illustration. I don’t draw as much as I’d like, but it was on my list of 2014 goals to do it more.
I love working with felt, and this felt wool from Benzie Design is so wonderful to stitch on! I created a free pattern for you to make your own felt hoop, but I’ve also made an embroidery pattern as well!
To make the bunny you’ll need:
Wool felt – I made her white, but I think she would also look pretty cute in brown!
Matching embroidery floss
6″ wooden embroidery hoop
Print out the template and cut out all the pieces. Stitch each piece in place with a whip stitch around the edge, using three strands of embroidery floss.
Stitch the mouth with a backstitch, stitch the eyes with satin stitch, and stitch the necklace with backstitches and lazy daisy stitches.
Tighten the fabric onto the hoop and whip stitch your bunny on. I just trim away the extra fabric, but you could cover the back with a felt circle if you want.
If you don’t want to make a felt bunny, I’ve also included a pattern to create an embroidery!
