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.
