DIY Stuffed Bunnies by Anders Ruff!

Post by Adria Ruff of Anders Ruff

andersruff-diy.stuffed.easter.bunny-07I don’t know about you, but my girls are getting super excited for the Easter Bunny to arrive in a couple weeks. We have been decorating at my house and to get ready for this Easter season, I decided to make DIY Stuffed Easter Bunnies with scrap fabric and ribbon I had laying around the house. I’ve created a tradition that every Easter I give the girls some sort of Easter Bunny. Now that the girls are older, I like coming up with more creative bunnies – ones that we can make together and create memories along the way. I’ve seen several ways to make your own stuffed bunnies and this particular style caught my eye. I designed an Anders Ruff FREE PRINTABLE Stuffed Easter Bunny  to share with you, so you can make some too!


Supplies needed:

Anders Ruff FREE PRINTABLE Stuffed Easter Bunny
Scrap Fabric
Scrap Ribbon
Sewing Machine
Needle & Thread
Pinking Scissors
Sewing Pins
2.5″ – 3″ Yarn Poms – Tutorial Here
Pillow Stuffing
Wooden skewer/dowel rod  *helpful to poke stuffing in the corners


Directions:

1. Print template on 8.5×11 cardstock.
2. Trim along line.
3. Cut two pieces of fabric, allowing 1/4” extra all the way around template. Fabric will be approximately 7“ x 11.5”.
4.  Trace bunny on reverse side of fabric, 1/4” outside of the template line (draw it freehand, so the bunny is bigger than template). If you don’t want bunny to be bigger, that is fine too… but this gives you a larger size option.
5.  Pin both pieces of fabric together, (right side to right side) and cut both at once with pinking scissors.
6.  Flip fabric and place together (wrong side to wrong side), so right sides are exposed. Repin together.
7.  Starting at the bottom left foot, sew 1/4” along the entire edge until you reach the right foot.

andersruff-diy.stuffed.easter.bunny-039. Leave 2” opening at the bottom for stuffing.
10.  Stuff bunny. A wooden skewer or dowel rod comes in handy, when trying to get the stuffing in the bunny and feet corners.  You have to poke it in to fill the corners.
11.  Hand stitch bottom to close.
12. Tie ribbon around neck. (I used 3/4″ ribbons in different colors – I tied in a knot and trimmed off the edges to create little bow-ties)

13.  Sew on a 2.5” – 3” yarn pom for bunny tail. Tutorial Here
14. Tails will create a way for bunnies to stand upright.
15. Create several bunnies with various shades & colors!andersruff-diy.stuffed.easter.bunny-05

Are these bunnies cute or what??  Brynne helped me pick out color combos and Graycie helped me stuff the bunnies and also helped me make the yarn pom bunny tails.  The girls and I loved them so much, that we decided to put them on our mantel display this year!  And the best part… I didn’t spend a dime like I have on several other Easters – all my supplies were found right here, in my house!!!andersruff-diy.stuffed.easter.bunny-06

How fun would these be in your kids’ Easter Baskets? Or pass them out as favor gifts if you are hosting an Easter dinner at your home. You can even make adult versions by making them in neutral colored fabrics such as linens & burlap with twine neck ties.

Even my husband commented on how much he liked these festive little bunnies… and we didn’t even prompt him to say it! Have fun creating new Easter Memories for your family – We would love to hear what Easter traditions your family does each year!  Feel free to share with us your family favorites!

Stella’s Modern Girly Nursery

It’s always exciting to come across photos of our customers’ rooms on Instagram. One customer, Brooke, had posted a couple pics of her daughter Stella’s nursery. It is so adorable, we asked if we could share those pics and more on our blog!

11004011_942501032428802_1852076731_nInspired by Kourtney Kardashian’s nursery for daughter Penelope, Brooke added personal touches that baby Stella can treasure for years to come. She designed the print above the crib and the pray sign that sits on the shelf. 11005924_942501669095405_1318891376_n copy11004948_942501589095413_280980394_nThe Newport Cottages bookcase displays dolls, personalized items, and pretty vintage decor.11005749_942501925762046_1803899007_nBrooke found the mirror (which hangs above the crisp white changing table) at an antique store and painted it gold. The rocking horse was also an antique store find!11006146_942501982428707_628429251_n copyThe tree bookcase is always a show-stopper!

We think it’s too cute that she has a miniature version of Mom’s chair!11004844_942501362428769_1718425109_nAbout the nursery, Brooke says, “I love a modern girly nursery with a vintage touch. I’ve had  a ton of people ask about the tree bookcase and the rocking chair!”

Modern Marsala Nursery

color-of-the-year-2015Who says Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala, isn’t a good fit for the nursery? This red-brown hue may seem like an unconventional choice, but that’s why we love it!

Try mixing it into a modern-and-minimal, black-and-white nursery design for a totally unique look! This color scheme can work for both a boy or a girl and provides just enough edginess while still being fun, bold and playful.

Holly Becker's Nursery Tour

When we stumbled upon Holly Becker’s nursery for her son, we just knew we had to share it! Holly is the founder and managing editor of decor8, a blog dedicated to sharing unique, inspiring and beautiful products, people and places with a heavy focus on creativity and decorating.

Holly and her husband, Thorsten, worked together to renovate this room in time before their son was born. They started with the most important piece of furniture – the crib – and decorated around it. A changing table just to the left of the crib makes diaper changes a breeze, and fun trinkets are displayed above.

after_hollybeckerThe wallpaper was the jumping-off point for this room. Applied only to a feature wall, it’s a beautiful backdrop to the room without feeling too overpowering. Its modern-yet-vintage vibe adds just the right amount of contrast to all the white furniture, oak floors and light-colored walls. Well done!babyroom16Opposite the crib is the mini library book shelf, providing the perfect place to store books, toys and trinkets. A gallery wall is prominently displayed above the book shelf, featuring vintage, indie and handmade art.  Holly used washi tape to hang some of the art for a more casual (and flexible) look. The soft flokati rug softens the entire room, and a custom glider in the corner is ready for snuggling. (Doesn’t the lightning throw pillow add a fun punch of yellow?)after3

Thank you so much to Holly and the decor8 blog for sharing this fabulous room with our fans!

Dont-Eat-Pete-for-Valentines-Day-1

I’m the room mom in both my 5th & 1st graders classes this year so I’m always looking for fun things to do for the classroom holiday parties. Don’t Eat Pete is a favorite with kids of all ages so I thought it would be fun to make my own version of this school Valentine’s Day party game – Don’t Eat Val. Foxes are so trendy right now, so our game has a darling little fox theme, which is perfect for both boys & girls!

Dont-Eat-Pete-for-Valentines-Day-board-topIn case you haven’t played before, I’ll give you a quick run-down of how to play. First you place candy or other little treats on each square of the board game. Then you choose someone to go out of the room or just far away that they can’t see or hear what’s going on around the game board. Everyone else chooses which square is going to be “Val” and keeps it secret. Tell the person to come back and then that person starts taking the candy off of the game board one square at a time (and eating it if they want). When they choose the candy covering the square that’s “Val” everyone yells “Don’t Eat Val!” Then it is the next player’s turn and you just continue in the same way until everyone’s had a turn and time runs out. Dont-Eat-Pete-for-Valentines-Day-board-vertical I made the game in a couple different sizes and formats to suit your needs. I made an 8×10 and an 11×14 in JPEG format if you want to print at Costco or another photo place. You could even mount your 11×14 onto some foam core poster board to make it last longer.Dont-Eat-Pete-for-Valentines-Day-board I also made an 8.5×11 PDF to print on cardstock at home or at your favorite print shop (I love Office Depot).Dont-Eat-Pete-for-Valentines-Day-Closeup-collage

CLICK HERE FOR THE 8X10 JPEG

CLICK HERE FOR THE 11X14 JPEG

CLICK HERE FOR THE 8.5X11 PDF

Tip: For the JPEG’s, once the image downloads and opens in a new window, simply right click and save to your computer. Then you can upload it to a photo lab.

And check out this post for more classroom Valentine’s Day party ideas!
