Easter bunny from a jumper

Craft afternoon with my son, turning an old jumper into a new cuddly easter bunny.

We used a great online tutorial and pattern http://crafts.tutsplus.com/tutorials/transform-an-old-sweater-into-an-adorable-bunny-softie-for-easter–craft-5227

Having printed out the pattern we chose which bits of the jumper to use where. We picked contrast sections for the ears and arms. The instructions show hand sewing but I used my machine to sew round the main body/head piece, arms and ears. The arms and ears are then hand stitched into the body before turning and stuffing. Use the instructions that the link takes you for the pattern and step by step instructions.

Fun afternoon project.
