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
- Sewing Machine, hand stitching material, or hot glue
- Optional Velcro
Peep Bunny Plush instructions
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.
Turn your bunny “right side” out and stitch on the buttons or use the peel and stick felt.
Stuff the inside of your bunny to the desired amount. Stitch the bunny closed, or see the next step if you want to make it more pack-able after Easter.
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.
