Easter Bunnies personalized. These are actually for my children’s dogs since I don’t have grandchildren but who says I can’t practice? Choose bunnies with long ears that don’t have plastic or wire inside. I used the Teddy Bear font in my Master Works II software in size .65 and added a basting frame. I rotated the name upside down and moved it to the far right side of the hoop so I would have more room for the bunny body on the left side. Even with that I had to punch the nose in and hold it for the last couple of letters. (No bunnies were actually hurt in this project.) I stitched the basting frame before pinning the bunny to use as a placement guide. I found that I didn’t actually need to use the basting frame on the ear itself, pins were enough. I hooped tear away stabilizer and pinned the bunny ear down with wss on top. (This is a good use of wss scraps.) I filled a bobbin with matching thread and chose the thread color to match the back of the ear so it wouldn’t look too bad. Some people open the ear up so the back is inside but then you have to sew the ear back together. I didn’t want to put that much effort into these. Using the 5x7 frame allowed me to use the same stabilizer for all 4 bunnies as you can see in the picture.

I added accessories to some including one with a tiny bib that said, "My First Easter", and one with a super hero cape and mask.
Ideas for next time: long ties if the bunny didn't have a bow tie already, tutu, Easter bonnet.

What a great idea and it's good to practice for grandchildren. You will have to update us on the whether the 2 that live together keep their "own" bunny or try to steal each others. ;)

They didn't try to steal yet but one of them chewed the ears off, embroidered side first!

I didn't make the bunnies. They are store bought. But if I did make them I could have personalized them before they were put together and that would be easier.

OH so cute.... I just bought bunny for my GD.... so I might have to check it out and see if the ears are able to be embroidered onto. Thanks for the idea... I would have never thought of it.... and I think I'll put the year on the other side if possible... Thanks again for the idea.... Keep up the good work and ideas.... Mechille :)

One of the dogs will probably tear it apart but one of the other dogs will cuddle it. They all have very different personalities. The 2 that live together will fight over them like siblings.
