It’s Fun for the Nursery Too!

This darling pillow is perfect for spring and a fun accent piece to enjoy every Easter. It will also be great in the nursery made up in colors to match a baby quilt.

Plus, the pattern is quite versatile. It’s easy to imagine a longer strip of bunnies made into a table runner. Or finish the pillow top into a wall or table quilt. The cute bunnies can be used in larger projects as well.

Bunny Hop Pillow Tutorial

Machine-sewn reverse applique is used to create the bunnies. It’s a simple technique, and a fun one to try, that looks and wears a bit differently than standard applique.

Bunny Hop Pillow Tutorial

If you dislike the idea of raw edges that might fray in the wash framing the bunnies, it’s easy to adapt the design to typical fusible applique. Simply cut out the bunny shapes from colorful prints and fuse them to the background, then sew around them with a blanket or other stitch.

The finished pillow, designed by Amy from Ameroonie Designs, is 18″ square.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
