These simple Easter Bunny pillow slip covers are the perfect craft project for kids of all ages, well kids who are old enough to use a pair of scissors. Best of all when Easter is over, you can remove the slip covers and pack them away and bring them out again next Easter!
These Easter Bunny pillow covers can be made to size to cover your child’s existing throw or bed pillows. Simply insert your pillow for some added Easter Bunny décor. I love these because once Easter is over I can take them off, fold them up, and not look at them until next year!
To make this easy Easter Bunny fabric craft project you will need:
Felt (in white, pink, lavender and blue)
Fabric puff paint (optional)
Fabric paint (optional)
To start your Easter Bunny pillow slipcovers you will need to decide which pillows you are going to use. I used some extra throw pillows. In my case I made pink felt pillows with colorful cut out Easter Bunny designs. Lay your pink felt fabric on a flat large surface; a dining room table or kitchen counter works well.
Trace out your throw pillow shape on the pink fabric. Leave at least 2 inches around the shape of your throw pillow. You will need two-piece of this. Leave one piece of fabric whole. Cut the other in half exactly. If your Easter Bunny pillow is square this will be simple. If your pillow is rectangle, cut your 2nd piece of fabric in half horizontally equidistant from top to bottom.
Now, decorate the front of your Easter Bunny pillow cover before you assemble it, but you can assemble it first and then decorate if you would like. Use your white felt to cut out your Easter Bunny eyes. Cut out some blue for the pupils.
Use a pencil or piece of stalk to outline the Easter Bunny face shapes, like, eyes, nose, and mouth, making about one for each pillow. Cut them out with scissors.
Now use black and red felt to cut out the tongue and some whiskers.
Draw some pink long ears out as well. Cut them out.
Next, use fabric glue to attach your Easter Bunny face cut outs to the pillow cover.
You can then glue on the Easter Bunny features onto the pink pillow cover. If you have chosen to assemble your pillow before decorating make sure your fabric glue doesn’t leak through and glue your Easter Bunny pillow cover together or you won’t be able to insert the pillow. Once you have attached your felt you can use puff paint to add small details. Make sure all of this dries before you assemble the Easter Bunny slipcover.
To assemble the Easter Bunny pillow cover lay your front decorated panel face up. Outline the edge with no sew or fabric glue. Lay you back panels on top of the front panel. If you are using fabric glue, press the panels together and let this dry. If you are using No Sew then you are ready to iron the pillow together.
Turn your Easter Bunny slipcover inside out once it has dried or your No Sew has cooled off. You can easily insert you pillow through the center opening in the back. Enjoy your Easter Bunny pillowslip cover for years to come.
Here are some tips you can use while making this Easter craft project:
Always wash your fabric before making anything out of it. This will allow your fabric to go ahead and shrink before your cut it out. While all fabric won’t shrink. Some will; so don’t risk it.
You can make this Easter Bunny slip cover out of any fabric you would like. If you use a fabric besides felt you will need to No Sew or fabric glue down the edges of the two back panels where the pillow slips in. Do this while your panels are unassembled. Fold them over with the rough edges towards what will the inside of the panes. Assemble as described before after this point.
Try cutting our your Easter Bunny facial features with some inking sheers. It will create some beautify edges and really make your designs pop.
