Acrylic Paint: Black, Pink and White
Jute String or Ribbon
Black Wire (0ptional)
Glue Gun (optional)
Wire Cutter (optional)
Cut 2 identical pieces of burlap 7 inches wide by 10 inches long. This is the measurements I used, you can use any size your wish.
Pin burlap pieces together. Determine the size of the ears you wish to have. I like long eared bunnies and I begin sewing my edges at 5 inches down from the top. Sew the two sides and bottom using a 5/8 inch seam allowance on the sewing machine.
Cut out a V shape at the top of your sack with the bottom of the V in center of your burlap sack. Refer to photo above.
Turn your bunny right side out and stuff with Polyfil. Prepare the ears for sewing by pinning.
You will now sew up the ears. I sew them in a M shape then sew across the top of the head.
You now have your bunny sewn up and ready to tie the jute string or ribbon around the ears. I gather it up tight in my hand and tie into a simple bow.
Now for the fun part to paint the face and add personality to your bunny. Paint the face to your own style. If you are using wire for the whiskers you will add them now. I just poke them in the burlap and add a little dab of hot glue.
You are now ready to enjoy your burlap sack bunny.
