Just in time for spring and Easter season, Krista has sewn up some felt bunny pocket pals with carrot pockets! In addition to making these cute little creatures, her tutorial also shows you how to make some tiny felt overalls with buttons and a dress with patch pockets.
Similar to our other pocket pals, this is a great beginner/intermediate project. While this is an easy-to-sew project overall, the small details and stitching make it lean toward intermediate. And — due to their size — this is also a good project to use up some smaller scraps of felt.
These felt bunny pocket pals would make an adorable gift for kids. And if you want to get them involved in the creative process, you could even have them pick out their favorite felt colors to use for the bunnies as well as their clothes and carrot beds. Depending on the age of your little one, they could also help out by using a peach marker to add some color to the bunny’s cheeks and ears.
Skill level: Beginner/Intermediate
Embroidery stitches used: Whip, back, blanket, ladder, and straight stitch. Want more guidance on these stitches? Check out our free embroidery guide.
Crafting Tips: Like our other pocket pals, we recommend cutting the pieces for these felt bunny pocket pals by hand due to their small size. And because they’re small, they also require small stitches! If you’re interested in an easy no-sew version, you can assemble a flat version of the animals instead using tacky glue and a fine point fabric marker for the faces.
