So it’s Easter soon. This means chocolate, bunnies, chocolate, eggs, hot cross buns, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. But if you want to give a treat that is a little longer lasting then this bunny egg cosy is a perfect Easter gift. He is super speedy to make; cut out. Sew up. Done.

You can download the template here and below are the steps.

If you aren’t a great fan of eggs you can always turn this little cutie into a soft toy by simply filling the bunny with toy stuffing and sewing up his bottom. Make sure you close the hole between his ears as well.

My wonderful friend Lady E has a blog over here at Modernmummusthave.com. She’s having a baby soon and is always on the look out for stylish, beautiful things for the new baba’s room. Her post about cushions in the shape of clouds caught my eye recently and got my creative juices flowing. ‘I can totally do that’ is what I thought and then I thought ‘I can totally do that using an old jumper’. So I did and using these instructions so can you.

The jumper cost me £4 from a charity shop but I made some others using a cashmere jumper I (oops) shrunk in the wash. If you’ve got an old sheet or pillow case lying around you could use that for the lining fabric instead of buying some and if you use the stuffing from a cushion that’s seen better days you could do the whole project for actual free.
