Project by Nicola Hills
Peter Rabbit fabrics are a personal favourite. I was so happy to get the chance to make a project with these beautiful new designs..
My finished cushion size 17.5” x 17.5”
You Will Need:
Home grown happiness fabrics.
Felt or Cotton Wadding.
An 18” Zip
Wool for Pom Pom
Pom pom maker
Basic sewing kit
1. Cut 4 x 3.5” strips of the white fabrics
Cut 3 x 2.5” strips of the blue fabric
With right sides together sew the fabric strips together.
Iron the seams out flat.
2. Adding the Bunny- if you don’t feel confident to draw a template there are many free images on the internet. *Just make sure you choose one without a copyright or restrictions of use*
I used a cotton wadding for the appliqué bunny , you could use felt.
Pin to secure onto your front fabric, I used the blanket stitch on my sewing machine.
3. Cut a piece of backing fabric the same size as the front, when trimmed mine measured 17.5” x 17.5”
A zip can be inserted or envelope back if you do not feel confident inserting a zip.
I added decorative stitches across each strip joint.
4. To finish off Make a lovely fluffy Pom Pom to decorate bunny’s tail.
