How to:

I created this template for the shape of the Zombie Bunny.
Cut out the template and lay over the felt you have chosen for your Bunny’s body.
Sew a Softie Day Zombie Rabbit SoftieCut around your template. You may like to secure with pins to hold your template in place.
I like to live on the edge and just hold the template tight as I cut around it.
(AKA I couldn’t find the pins.)

I traced around a lid to create the whites of the eyes.
The fun part of this project was creating the “embellishments” that I so desired.
I highly recommend it!
If you’d like the templates for the ears and belly, they are here.

I don’t know if the sewing purists will approve, but I used fabric glue to glue down the Bunny’s features. I then stitched everything into place.

Once all the features were in place, I laid the front of the bunny onto the back of a piece of glittery black felt.

My sewing Yoda, Trixi taught me this technique- you simply stitch the cut-out front to the back. No need to cut out a second piece according to your template. Once you have sewed around the edge of your softie, you simply cut along the shape. So simple!

I did a simple running stitch along the edge of the softie to secure both pieces together.
I started at the right foot and worked in a clockwise direction.
Make sure it’s a close stitch- otherwise your stuffing will poke through!

As you sew around the left foot, arm and ear, make sure to stuff your Bunny with filling.
I just used some filling from an old cushion inner that we no longer needed.

Stuff the head with filling before you stitch down the neck towards the finishing line. I used a skewer to push the stuffing in. Because I’m clearly a professional.

So this guy doesn’t yet have a name. Thoughts?
