This week is all about inspiration, and from one of our favorite places Pinterest. After doing a bit of searching and find a sweet bunny pattern along with a large pile of fabric strips sitting at the end of the craft table, a quilted project seemed like a perfect way to go.
With strips of torn fabric (you’ll need about 30 strips that measure approximately 2 by 17 inches), I laid them out on top of a square (approximately 14 by 11 inches) piece of HeatnBond Fusible Fleece and created a basket weave effect. Once each strip was in place where I wanted them, I ironed the front panel to the Fleece and trimmed any extra fabric off each side. Then I quilted the strips by sewing the edges and middles of each strip (using a ¼” seam allowance so the edges of each strip were left raw). The back panel of the pillow was then cut from one solid piece of fabric and ironed on to Fusible Fleece as well.
*This sweet bunny pattern can be downloaded free from this page. I found it on Pinterest here too! I cut the Bunny from two pieces of white fabric and fused the layers together using HeatnBond Lite Iron-on Adhesive. I added thread for the eye. Then I used a light coating of SpraynBond Fusible Adhesive Spray on the back of the bunny (be sure to protect your project from any overspray), allowed it to dry and then placed the bunny on my patchwork square. When I had it where I wanted it, I ironed it onto the pillow so it stayed in place as I stitched around it. I added the felt flowers and leaves to the bunny.
*Lastly, the pillow face and back were sewn together, stuffed and completed with a stitched side and a pom-pom tail.
