Easter Pocket Bunny DIY
This lovely Easter sewing project would delight anybody who gets one. The bunnies have tiny pockets in the front to tuck in some money or even a hand written note for a special recipient. They come in two sizes. The small one measures about 8.5 inches and the large one measures 9.5 inches tall. That includes the ears!

This project is also a great fabric scrap buster as it only requires a small amount of fabric. I made mine with woven cotton with cute dots from the Michael Miller dots fabric collection. I added some pom pom trim to the pocket to give it some cuteness. I love how they turned out!
The bunny templates I used for the video are from my Easter bunny applique post, which has 5 different shapes of bunnies. I printed the small bunny at 125% enlargement and the large bunny at 150%. The small bunny had super narrow ears and I scrambled to turn them with right sides out, so I redrew both templates to make it a bit easier to turn them right sides out.
This post only has a video tutorial (above) so you can follow the process visually. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
How to make an Easter pocket bunny:
- download and print the templates <<======== click this link!
- some scrap fabric, best woven cotton
- some pom pom trim
- straight pins
- paper scissors
- fabric scissors
- double threaded hand sew needle
- optional fabric clips
To make the large pocket bunny, I used fabric clips to hold the pom pom trim in place. I actually liked those better than straight pins 😉
I think I need to make many more and also enlarge them! My daughter loves stuffed animals and she would be thrilled to have a large bunny with a front pocket!
