Project: Bunny Rabbit made in-the-hoop
Make a furry bunny rabbit art doll in the hoop of your embroidery machine by combining the rabbit head with any of the cloth character bodies.
The bunny is great for Spring or Easter decor. And he looks extra cute with a jacket or other clothes.
This one uses a car wash cloth from the dollar store so he’s super budget friendly!
As with all the cloth characters – you can add a wire armature to make it pose like a wired puppet, or leave out that step.
Read down below to see all the materials and how they were used to make this doll in the hoop of your embroidery machine.
