1/2 yard of felt (I was able to get 25 Peep bunnies per 1/2 yard if I traced them right next to each other with their bottoms touching)
Brown fabric paint
Ribbon/fabric/bias tape for bunting
I started out by tracing the template onto my felt, with the felt folded in half so that I ended up with a bunny front and a bunny back. I used 1/2 yard each of pink and green. Once I had traced my bunnies I cut them out and painted their faces.
The faces are very simple to paint and only need to be painted on the front piece. I used an inexpensive fabric paint, it was $1.29 for the bottle and I hardly used any of it. I just put a little bit of it on a paper plate and, took the eraser side of a new pencil and dipped the top of it in the brown paint. I then pressed it onto the bunny front. I did two eyes and a nose.
While the bunnies’ faces were drying I sewed the bunny backs onto bias tape. I wanted to use extra wide double fold bias tape but I didn’t have any so I used the regular width bias tape. If I make another one of these I will definately use an extra wide bias tape. You can also check the original tutorial at Dana Made It as she gives another option for the bunting.
Once the bunnies’ faces were dry I pinned and sewed, one at a time, one front bunny onto one back bunny. I topstitched all around the bunny and that was it. I left a little bit of bias tape on each end of the bunting so that I could use those ends to hang up the garland.
I am looking forward to the boys seeing the Peep bunny garland in the morning. I think that they will really like. I know I do!
