Are you looking for a DIY Peep bunny plush tutorial? Here is a really easy craft for the Easter season. You can even make it no sew if you’d like. My kids love Peeps, how about you?

I made Peep pillows for Easter, and my kids loved their plush toy with the perky ears. These little bunnies are perfect to add to an Easter basket surrounded by all the Easter candies. This craft didn’t take a lot of time, there are options listed to make it easier, and there is an option for easy storage.

My mom gave me a bunch of fabric. Every year I sit down with it and try to create something. This year I decided on Peeps.

Peep Bunny Plush Materials

  • Fabric, of your choice. You can use pink fabric if you want a pink bunny
  • Buttons for eyes or peel and stick felt
  • Stuffing
  • Sewing Machine, hand stitching material, or hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Optional Velcro
Fold a piece of fabric in 1/2 & put your "right sides" (which means the part that is facing out on your bunny) of fabric together. Draw a peep shape. If you are not comfortable free handing your Peep, google search a picture of a peep, cut and paste it onto a piece of paper, make it the size you want, and print it for a pattern. Cut your double layer of fabric, and stitch or hot glue the bunny together. Make sure to leave an opening at the bottom for stuffing.

I opted to use Velcro strips to close my bunny. I used a stitch Velcro but you could use a Velcro with a sticky back. This allows me to stuff the bunny when I decorate, and then un-stuff it and pack it away for the year.

We called this “sitting with our peeps” when we sat on the couch.

Now while my kids are enjoying their marshmallow treat, they can cuddle with these. No need to run to the bear workshop for those expensive pets. Boy did my kid’s love that store. There was a serious passion for stopping there whenever we were near there. What is your favorite Easter treat? (My moms is hot tamales, my kids love sour things, etc) Do you have any special requests that you look forward to? Let me know in the comments below.

    1. Thanks Victoria, and thanks for the laugh about the pillow fight. I’ve been lucky so far that my kids haven’t done that yet. lol

  1. So adorable! I no longer have extra fabric around, but I do have a bag of clothes that I keep adding to for Amvets. Maybe I can find something in there. They would be cute take home goodies for my grandkids. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh I love the idea of the using old clothes! What a great idea πŸ™‚ Otherwise Walmart sells some fabric folded into squares – I think it’s a yard – for around $1, those might work as well.

  2. So cute! My kids saw these at the store and I refused to shell out for overpriced stuffies. But I do have a stash of fabric scraps….this would be a fun project! Curious, did you have stencil or pattern you used?
