Easter Bunny Garland Using Cricut Felt (Plus Free SVG)
I used Cricut’s Summer Sky Felt Sampler for another project and really fell in love with the colors! So much that I decided to make an Easter banner using the felt and white iron-on. The bunny image is free to use and ready for you to import into Cricut Design Space. Enjoy!
Import the Bunny SVG into Cricut Design Space. This SVG was adapted from a free image – Bunny Rabbit Wrench Repairs - by OpenClipart-Vectors on Pixabay.
Create the cut design, sizing the bunny to about 5 inches tall. Make the project, cutting the bunny from white iron-on and the dress from Cricut felt. Cut a 5x7 oval from felt for each pennant in the banner.
Cut a piece of fabric roughly 5x7 inches. Apply the iron-on to the fabric following the manufacturer instructions.
Layer the fabric on top of a piece of white felt or batting.
Cut a 4x6 oval to use as a pattern. Center the pattern over the bunny and trace the outline. Cut the oval through all layers using scissors.
Embellish the bunny using some simple embroidery stitches. I used a French knot to attach the dress to the fabric oval. I repeated the French knot for the bunny’s eyes and accented the nose with a back stitch.
Attach the fabric oval to the larger felt oval using a straight whip stitch. I also embroidered around the outside of the fabric oval using the stem stitch.

Thread the completed pennant on some cotton cord.
