I Love to Create: Robbit Plushies!

Robbit Plushies!

Rabbits are nice but robots are (dare I say) cooler–this year add a little techie love to a traditional bunny to make the kids a Robbit plushie for their Easter basket! Here’s how.

Materials
Grey Felt
Poly or Bamboo Stuffing
Sewing Machine & Grey Thread
Fashion Graffiti Fabric Paint Tagger (in either color: Soho, Merge or Taxicab)

Fabric Marker (Black)
Fine Tip Paint Brush
Optional: Embroidery Needle & Floss (Silver & Light Blue)
Optional: Wooden Skewer
How-To
  • Cut front & back pieces for the head, body, legs, arms & ears (see photo below for examples.)

  • Use Fabric Paint Tagger to color in the center of the front ear pieces, and a square on the front body piece. Let dry.

  • Use Fabric Marker to draw a robot-y face on front head piece and the frequency modulator line on the body front.

  • Using needle & floss, embroider detailing on the body & eyes (optional).
  • Sew Robbit together using a top stitch & 1/4″ seam allowance; stuffing all pieces (except the ears) as you go along.
Note: If you don’t want your Robbit to be all flopsy-mopsy, insert a wooden skewer through the stuffing in the body & head.

    Ooooh that is the perfect idea for use with the bunny eyes I came across at the thrift store last week! OOH yeah! I see me making a few of these for Toy Society drops in the next week or two! Thanks for the idea!!

    Hi. Am making these for Easter. Could use some more specific sewing instructions… For example, do you sew and stuff the limbs first and then attach to body? Any details would be much appreciated. Thanks.
