Pattern Details

  • full-sized pattern pieces – no enlarging needed
  • detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right
  • links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to make your own squishy bunny – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!


He's about 13 inches tall when sitting - not counting his legs or his super tall ears. His arms and legs are about 7 inches long. That's long enough to hug a friend. :-)



There's nothing tricky on this one - just cuddly cuteness. :-) If you can use your sewing machine, you can make him.

If your sewing machine doesn't have a free arm, you may need to sew the head to the body (the neck seam) by hand.

Materials Needed

You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

You'll Need. . .

  • 1/2 yd. fleece fabric (I love using Cuddle Fleece)
  • scraps of pink satin for the ear linings
  • tiny scrap of wool felt for the nose
  • small piece of Soft & Stable for the ear linings
  • two 9mm safety eyes
  • 1 cup plastic pellets for filling (I like Fairfield Poly Pellets)
  • polyester fiberfill (I love Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly­fil Supreme)

    This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

    For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


    You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

    For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!


    If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

    For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or die cut the fabric pieces for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

    Great pattern!

    Wendi’s patterns never disappoint. I sew for charity and purchased this pattern for its simple lines. Instructions so easy to follow along and they turned out great. Had some satin but couldn’t find pink so decided to go monochrome as I had lots of fleece on hand. Thanks for a wonderful pattern!

    Cute and Cuddly

    Very good pattern, a little more complicated than Munchie but still very easy to complete in a day or two. I made my grandson one for Easter out of blue minky with patterned minky for inside of ears and the tail. Cant wait to make a few more.

    he is sooo cute

    my only problem is the instructions do not tell you at what point to put the arms into the body. I put him all together and when I turned him right side out I realized the arms were missing.
    the arms should be put in before you sew the front (tummy ) to the back. so with a little seam ripper and some patience he now has arms

    Fantastic Pattern

    This is a great pattern! Perfectly written and easy to follow. I was a bit concerned about the foam in Benson's ears, but it worked EXACTLY like the pattern said it would!! My college-aged daughters will love their new friends!
