Easter project: no-sew bunny ears for your pet - a tutorial by Ooh Leela!

Hippity hoppity, Easter's on its way!

Have you ever come across anything cuter than a puppy wearing bunny ears?Ok, maybe you have, but you have got to agree that this is pretty darn cute!

This is a super easy, no-sew project, that you will be able to finish in just a few minutes! Such an appropriate last minute Easter project, dontcha think?

1. Supplies & tools: white felt, pink felt, elastic, fur trim (sold by the yard, in the trim/ribbon section at Joann), fabric marker, hot glue gun, needle and thread (optional). 2. Mark your pieces, according to the template, using your fabric marker. 3. Using template, cut 2 pattern pieces "A" of fur trim, 2 pattern pieces "A" of white felt, 2 pattern pieces "B" of pink felt and 2 pattern pieces "C" of white felt. 4. Glue the back o pattern piece "A" - fur to pattern piece "A" - felt.

5. Glue pattern piece "B" to the furry part of the ears. 6. Add glue & pinch ear as show in the picture. 7. Using pattern as a guide, make two 0.5" cuts to 1 of the pattern pieces "C" (the other "C" piece should remain intact). 8. Insert bunny ears in pattern piece "C."

9. Glue (or sew) elastic to pattern piece "C" (the one without the cuts). The length of the elastic will depend on the size of your pet's head. 10. Glue both pattern pieces "C" together, making sure the elastic ends are "sandwiched" between both pieces. Ta-da - done! 

Sit back and look at your pet. Warning: your heart might melt. Take lots and lots of pictures. Do post them on our Facebook wall! 

Happy Easter friends! May the Easter Bunny bring you lots and lots of chocolate! Oh, and don't forget to take a moment to think about the true meaning of Easter.
