Bunnies: Freezer Paper Stencil and Applique with download


We are gearing up for Easter. We made bunny shirts with a freezer paper stenciling and applique! If you want to make one too just follow these simple directions! It doesn't take long and your little bunnies will be Hippity Hopping to find their eggs!

This is what I did.
-Made a template using power point shapes. There is a big bunny and a little bunny.
-Cut out the bunny and ears.

-Tape on the ears. I couldn't find a "tool" on PP that allowed me to slant the ears so I just cut them out and taped them on the way I wanted.

-Tape the bunny onto freezer paper to hold it in place. Use an exacto knife to cut it out. Cut out the little tail too.

-Place the outline of the bunny onto the shirt and iron it on!

-Paint(your little helper will have fun helping too).

-Let it dry and peel off the stencil. You will need to let it dry for 24 hours and press with the iron. You can wash after 72 hours.

Here is your little bunny T!

Your little bunny will be so excited to wear it!

They will Hop, Hop, Hop...

right down the bunny trail.

-While other bunnies just want to relax.

Now for the applique

You need...pellon heat and bond, a piece of fabric, the bunny template, thread, sewing machine,
pins to hold template in place and scissors

-Place the "bumpy" side of the heat and bond to the wrong side of the fabric.

-Pin in desired spot. I wanted both pink and orange colors in my bunnies.

-Cut the bunnies out. I din't cut out the tail. I just left it as is. A different fabric may be cute for the tail.

-Peel off the back of the interfacing and iron onto your shirt.

-Stitch around the bunny and you're done!



I would love to see your version!

They are so cute!! I think we need bunnies on our tops too. Never heard of that amazing freezer paper though. Think I'll keep to applique as it's less mess for me. Your girls are just adorable! I love the dress, did you make it?
