Print out bunny. Trace onto freezer paper and cut out. Pin to fold fabric. Cut bunny out, cutting through both layers.
Use a pencil make a dot where the eyes are through the paper. Next make an another dot at the bottom of the nose.
Cut a length of thread about 12 in. of black, using all 6 strands of thread. Using an embroidery need thread the need and embroider 2 black eyes and 1 mouth. I used 4 stitches starting just above the pencil mark. Make the first stitch small. Then make the next 2 larger center under the first stitch. Then make 1 more smaller stitch to match the top. Use pink thread for the nose. I started at the dot making a small stitch then increasing each time. You could also use felt or a sharpie or fabric paint pin.
Use straight pins to pin both layers of the bunny together. Use your sewing machine to sew the bunny together using 1/4 in seam allowance. Start at the bottom about a 1/2 in from the 1 side. Sew around the either bunny. Go slow and pivot as needed. Leave a 2 in opening at the bottom. Don’t forget to back stitched at the start and end.
Stuff the bunny with polyfil. Start with the ears. Use something to help stuff. I used the eraser end of a pencil.
Sew the whole closed using the sewing machine. Push the edges together and smash the filling down.
