Make This DIY Bunny Cardigan Sweater Just In Time For Easter!

Since Easter is so early this year, it will still be cool. The kiddos will need a sweater. Good thing I have my Big Shot handy! A decorated sweater can transform a simple outfit into a show stopper. Did I mention it is easy, too?

First, buy a yellow sweater that will fit your child.

Next, you will need a 6” square of felted wool, felt or polar fleece, pink embroidery floss to match the Bunny and gray to stitch on the face. I used Sizzix die-cut Bunny by Jorli. Simply place your pink fabric on the die-cut, place a cutting pad on the top and the bottom of the die creating a Sizzix sandwich. Place this Sizzix sandwich into your Big Shot machine and a few quick turns of the handle and the Bunny is completely cut-out.

I like to use a pattern for stitching the eyes, nose and whiskers. Use a piece of paper and a pencil and draw the face. You can create your own personality for your Bunny. When satisfied with the drawing, grab some grey embroidery floss and split it into two strands. I used a French Knot for the eyes and an outline stitch for the mouth and whiskers.

Next, place the Bunny onto the sweater. Pin in place.

For more personality, I folded the ear over.

I used an applique stitch to sew the Bunny down to the sweater and you're done!

Your family and friends will think you shop at a fancy children’s boutique. Only we will know the secret...our Big Shot.
