Fusible Applique Makes These a Quick Project!
These adorable pot holders feature realistic rabbit silhouettes. The spring colors make them perfect for Easter. The bunnies would also be great for a baby quilt, wall quilt, table runner … well, just about anything.
The tutorial from So Sew Easy by Amy from Friends Stitched Together comes with a printable PDF pattern for cutting out the rabbit and grass shapes.
While we love the silhouette look, we can easily imagine the rabbits made in a soft gray or brown fabric, and features added. A small button or french knott eye maybe be all that’s needed.
Insul-Bright batting is used for heat-proofing and Heat ‘n Bond is used for fusing the shapes onto the background. Pre-quilted fabric is used for the backing but it’s not necessary. Simply stitch through all the layers of the finished pot holders, perhaps in an echo or cross hatch pattern, to give both sides that quilted look.
The pot holders are about 11″ square once completed.
Supplies you’ll need:
Heat ‘n Bond
