Easter Bunny Applique

These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Easter Bunny Applique Set.

Size: 109mm x 126mm (4.19" x 4.85"). Stitches: 5703. Colors: 6.
Size: 108mm x 137mm (4.15" x 5.27"). Stitches: 5556. Colors: 6.

You can embroider these designs on a base fabric as regular applique, or make them freestanding.

You will need :

  • embroidery threads, either rayon or polyester,
  • base fabric (fabric on which you embroider),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • pieces of applique fabric,
  • polyester craft felt for the freestanding version.
  • scissors.


Note: both designs are embroidered in the same way.

Stabilize the base fabric with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Hoop it tightly. If you are making the freestanding version, hoop a piece of polyester craft felt.

Prepare the embroidery threads.

Upload one of the embroidery files into the machine.

The first color will embroider the outline of a rabbit and stop.

Cover the outline with a piece of applique fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the applique fabric and stop.

With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric around the outline as close to the stitches as possible.

Return the hoop to the machine. Start it again. The next, third, color will embroider the rabbit's nose and cheeks. We recommend pink for this.
The fourth color will embroider the eyes and eyebrows. We recommend any dark color.

The fifth color will embroider the outline of the rabbit again. If you're making regular applique, you can skip this color.

If you're embroidering the freestanding design, before you embroider the 5th color, turn the hoop around. This is the back of the emboidery:

Cover the back of the embroidery with a piece of applique fabric. Pin the fabric outside the embroidery field, or use scotch tape to hold the edges. Return the hoop to the machine.

Start the machine. After it embroiders the outline it will stop again.

As a final touch for a freestanding embroidery, you can glue a small pom-pom to the back of the rabbit as a tail.
