You will never believe how easy it is to make your own DIY kids clothes. Add a little craft fur, embroidery floss, and ribbon to a clearance sweatshirt (or shirt or dress), and you have the sweetest fuzzy bunny shirt, perfect for any Easter/Spring celebration. Keep reading for the tutorial!
- Shirt or Clothing Item of Choice
- Craft Fur
- Black Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
- Fabric Glue
- Hot Glue
Step 1: To begin making your bunny inspired DIY kids clothes, use a pencil or marker to draw a bunny head shape on the back of the craft fur. I printed the shape off on cardstock, cut it out, and used it as a template.
Step 2: Cut the shape out of the fur.
Step 3: Draw eyes and a nose (or whatever kind of face you’d like) on the back of the fur head. Use embroidery floss and back stitches to stitch the face.
Step 4: The eyes and nose got pretty lost in my fur, so trim it down, if needed.
Step 5: Position the bunny head where you want it on the shirt. Then, lift one ear, apply fabric glue to the back, and lay it back down. Repeat with the other ear and then with the face. This way you don’t have to worry about dropping it in the wrong spot with glue all over it (lesson learned the hard way)!
Step 6: Make a bow out of ribbon, and stick it on the ear with hot glue.
Once the fabric glue has dried, the shirt is ready to be worn. It also machine washes and dries beautifully – just turn it inside out.
Can you believe how cute these DIY kids clothes are? I made a couple for a friend and used different color ribbons for each bunny’s bow. I love that it makes each one different!
And apparently, having a fuzzy bunny on a shirt is what little girls’ dreams are made of because these cuties LOVED them!
