Begin with all of the textile pieces cut. Then trace the bunny body pattern from a template on to the reverse of the wonder under. Make use of iron setting stated on wonder according to information sheet. Iron wonder beneath to cloth colour of the alternative for the bunny body.  

Start by cutting out the large circle, measure 3” from the bottom edge of the 10’x10” square, find the midpoint and iron circle into place, stitch around the edge with the sewing machine. Iron ears in to place and sew around, then follow with little circle for head, iron into place and sew around. Using a black textile marker, draw a cute little face of the bunny!

By means of green embroidery threads sew some grass around bunny body. After that, using the white pompom sew bunny tail into place.  Measuring 2” from the left side edge use a pencil to sketch out “Happy Easter.” Use embroidery thread of the color choice to stitch the letters. I used a back stitch besides adding a few green pieces of grass to the sides. To make points: Use 2” x 2” squares, fold in half diagonally then fold again and iron flat. Pin one of each of the 5 colors to the edge of the front panel.

Repeat for all 4 sides. Once all points are pinned in to place stitch down, and then remove pins. Using 2nd 10” x10” square place on top side and pin all the edges in to place. Using a ¼” seam stitch all around the square leaving a 3” opening to turn to pillow right side out. Cut all corners. Then pull right side through the small hole. Continue until the piece is all right side out. Iron edges flat, then use a ¼” seam to top stitch edge of pillow. Remember to leave opening so you can fill with stuffing. Once you have pillow filled up to the mark, pin the opening shut and go on with ¼” seam to sew shut.

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Plastic Spoon
  • Plastic wrap


  1. Cut drawings out of the masking tape.
  2. Place the tape drawings on the egg.
  3. Put the egg on a plastic spoon and plunge it into the dye. One should leave the egg in the dye longer for a darker color and shorter for a lighter color.
  4. Put the egg on a piece of plastic wrap and let dry.
  5. When dry take out the tape.
  6. One can then replicate the process by adding up different tape pieces to different areas of the egg and dipping into a different dye color.

 Crepe Paper Dye Method

  1. Cut strips of crepe paper (crepe paper is the kind of material they make birthday party bunting out of).
  2. Place the strips in a bowl.
  3. Pour hot water over the paper in the bowl. Make sure there is an adult is observing.
  4. Take the paper out of the water using a large spoon.
  5. Add some white vinegar to the dye (about 1 tablespoon). The vinegar facilitates the dye to set.
