Flour Sack Bunny
Watch me! – YouTube (Coming soon!)
I couldn’t help myself, I had to make one more bunny. I’m thinking this will be the last one for this season, but I can’t promise. This bunny is my favorite so far. Just look at those cute, chubby cheeks, and that button nose. She is so sweet! Let me show you how you can make one of your own.
- Flour sack ( you can find these at Walmart with the tea towels)
- left over morning coffee
- Rice or beans
- Hot glue gun & Glue sticks
- 2 buttons ( for the eyes)
- nose ( pink button, pink pompom.. be creative =) )
- Whiskers ( I cut off 6 bristles from my broom, haha)
- blush and Q-tips or round paint brush
Step 1: The first thing you will want to do is coffee dye your flour sack. To do this just soak the flour sack in your left over morning coffee for about 10 minutes. Once it is finished soaking, gently ring it out and hang it somewhere to dry. It is a good idea to coffee dye a few at a time, this way when you need them for another project they are ready to go!
Step 2: Lay the flour sack out flat and fill the center with some rice, just enough to add a little weight. Then add a big glob of poly-fill onto of the rice. You may have to gather your material together and keep adding more poly-fill until you get your bunny as full as you’d like it to be.
Step 3: Once the bunny is full then pull up two corners that are diagonal from each other and tie them. Tuck the ends into a hole by the knot. Then take the two left over corners and do the same thing except this time don’t tuck them as they will be your bunnies ears.
Step 4: Now you can begin to put the bunnies face together. This is my favorite part! I’m going to try and break this down the best I can for you, but I think just by looking at it you can see what I did.
- First play around with the ears and determined which side you want to be the front of your bunny. Next, glue a bow to the top. Now put a little dab of glue on each side to hold the bunnies ears in place. You might also have to put some glue at the top where the knot is if poly-fit is peeking out.
- Glue two buttons on for the eyes. I always start with the eyes, I think its the easiest way!
- Next glue on the nose. Now, if you are using something different for the whiskers, like raffia, then you may want to glue that down first.
- Before adding the whiskers use some blush and make rosy cheeks.
- Once the nose was glued on I stuck the broom bristles where I wanted them. I then pulled them out, put a dab of hot glue on the end, and stuck them back in. The glue will help to secure them. I also ran a VERY thin bead of glue on the back side of the whiskers and stuck it to the flour sack so it stays in place.
- For the bought I just glued down some twine. You can skip this part if you wish but I think it just added a little something extra, don’t you?
