I have had my eye on Two Little Hooligan’s Fat Quarter Friday since she started the project a few weeks ago. Genius! Fat quarters are something I never really know what to do with, seeing as how I am not a quilter, and don’t buy fat quarters just to have them on hand.
When she announced Fat Quarter Fridays, I was intrigued, and immediately went to the fabric shop to pick out some fat quarters myself. I was going to figure out something to do with all of these little squares come heck or high water! Lol
They have been sitting on my desk staring me in the face ever since that fateful day…until yesterday. Here’s how it went down…
Chloe: “Mommy, can you please make me a Rabbit for Show and Tell this week?”
Me: (In my head) Du du du daaah! Never fear, SuperMom is here!
“Of course I can sweetie!!!”
Lol – What an idiot. I had some misconceived notion that I could whip up a stuffed animal in under an hour, because of course it would be easy to find a pre-made tutorial and rabbit pattern! Ummm….
While coming up empty handed, visions of my daughter’s tear stained cheeks
tantrum started floating in my head because Mommy didn’t make her a rabbit like she promised! Then the fat quarters started staring me in the face again (they may have been mocking me by now), and an idea was born.
I must admit, I am happy with the end result. And so is my daughter, and that is what truly counts! It won’t take you longer than an hour or two to whip up, the hardest part for me was figuring out the pattern and how to put it together.
The best part? You only need 2 Fat Quarters for this project! I used 3, but that was just so I could have an additional coordinating fabric.

Of course I had to do a little embroidery on the back. I wouldn’t want Chloe to forget that Somebunny loves her very much 🙂
I hope this tutorial will make many a child smile on Easter morning, waking up to two floppy ears hanging out of their little baskets – Happy Sewing everyone 🙂
