Peter Rabbit Easter Cushion

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

  • Rabbit Template.

Tools Required:

  • Iron

  • Pom pom maker

  • Basic sewing kit


How To:


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.
