Chevron Bunny Pillow Tutorial

 



Visit thecsiproject.com



What you need
1.  freezer paper
2.  Exacto knife ( or a silhouette machine)  We still need one!  And I don't think I would share
3.  Fabric - two 16.5in circles
           - one 5in x 52in strip (side of pillow)
          -  two 1in x 100 strips (ruffles)
4. Stuffing



I drew a bunny and then scanned to my computer and filled with a chevron pattern.  I just LOVE chevron.


I placed my print out on top of my freezer paper and cut out my bunny.


I ironed on the bunny onto a 16.5 in circle that I traced from a plate onto drop cloth. 


I painted the bunny with lime acylic paint.


I painted a thin outlin around the bunny.  Then let dry.


I serged the edges of my ruffles. Gathered. Pinned.  Sew in place.  Repeat with 2nd row.


I sewed my 5x52in strip along one side of pillow.  Repeat with back of pillow with right sides together.  Flip. Stuff. and Stitch Close.


I have had this fabric for a year.  I finally had a cute easter project to use it.

  1. I saw when you guest posted this at Sumo's Sweet Stuff, but SERIOUSLY, this pillow is mad cute.

    I also have great love for the freezer paper stenciling on pillows. I made a Diet Coke/Scrabble Tile pillow to rave reviews for a friend. I can't wait to make more.

    Thanks for the inspiration to break it out again :)

    Also, that easter fabric rocks.
