Choose a fabric you like to use and fold it in two, hiding the right side of the fabric inside. Draw a sketch of the rabbit with a vanishing pen or pin the shape pattern to the fabric.

Sew, following the lines (or the pattern shape). Make sure to leave a hole to stuff it with and to turn the “parts” inside out. This hides the stitches and makes it look neat.

Cut the parts out leaving about a 0,3 cm (1/5 inch) of cloth and turn them right side out.

Stuff the animal with cotton or polyester pillow filling (this one will be washable).

Sew the hole closed, either by hand or with a sewing machine and stitch all the parts together.

Add a mouth and eyes with a black yarn. Make the ears in the same way, leaving the hole to turn them right side out. There is no need to fill them with polyester. You might add different fabric or different colour to the inside of the ear if you want.

Now all you need to do is tailor some nice outfit and the rabbit is ready to make someone happy…like my nice for example.
