I used my brand new Cricut Maker to whip this up and it took me less than 3 hours and I even made an extra little dress! And make sure to read to the bottom because I’m giving one of these amazing machines away!!!!
This is one of the free projects that can be accessed for free with the Cricut Maker. I was able to cut all the fabric pieces on the machine and marked all the embroidery with the fabric pen in the machine.
It was pretty amazing to have all the annoying parts about sewing – figuring out the pattern, cutting the fabric, and marking the fabric, done for me!

How to Sew the Bunny Softie
- Iron the ear contrast fabric and nose fabric to heat-n-bond.
- Cut and mark your pattern pieces using the Cricut Maker.

- With right sides together sew the limbs together, clip the curves and turn right side out.
- With right sides together sew the head pieces to the body pieces at the neck.
- With right sides together sew the one back ear piece to a front ear piece. Clip curves and turn right side out.
- Stuff the limbs and set aside.
- Fold a pleat into the ears and pin to the top of the head piece. Roll the length of the ears.
- Pin the arms and legs in place and pin to the center of the body so you will have room to sew around the edge. Position the back body piece over sandwiching the ears and limbs.
- Start at the bottom and attach one leg and sew around leaving a gap between the legs to turn and stuff.
- Click any curs and points. Turn right side out and stuff.
- Hand stitch the hole closed.
How to Sew the Dress and Pumpkin Costume

- Position on dress and topstitch to the dress piece by sewing along the curved edges.
- If making the costume cut the Jack-o-lantern face out of black iron-on vinyl and iron to the dress I used my Cricut EasyPress
