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.

  2. That is the cutest ever easter pillow! I love it! Such a sweet bunny, and the ruffles set it all off so nice! :)

  3. Love this pillow! So cute! The bunny fabric on the back is darling and I love how instead of just a silhouette, you upped it with the chevron pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That pillow is darn right adorable. Love it. winks- jen
