Today we’re bringing this tutorial home that was originally posted over at Flamingo Toes! Scraps are one sewing item that we all have, and I love new ideas for using them. I wanted to create a project for showcasing some of your favorite scraps, and I thought this bunny silhouette wall art would be the perfect way!
This is a super simple and fast project (my favorite kind). Ready to get started? We’ll be finished before you know it!
quilting cotton scraps – 9 prints, approximately 5″x5″ each
Heat n Bond – 9 pieces, approximately 5″x5″ each
white/cream quilting cotton – 11×14″ piece
fusible fleece (or other heavy fusible interfacing) – 11×14″ piece

To start, apply each Heat n Bond piece to the wrong side of each quilting cotton scrap.
Use this image to cut a bunny from each scrap piece. If cutting by hand, trace the bunnies backward onto the paper from the Heat n Bond and cut each piece out. I used my Silhouette to cut them all quickly, using a fabric blade, the cutting blade set at 4, and thickness at 33. I found it cut more precise with the paper backing removed from the Heat n Bond before cutting.
Once you have all 9 bunnies cut out, apply the fusible fleece to the white/cream quilting cotton piece.
Place the bunnies onto the white/cream quilting cotton piece, measuring to make sure they’re all equal distances apart from eachother and the outer edges.
Follow manufacturer’s instructions to press each bunny into place using an iron.
Optional: If desired, stitch around each bunny using preferred applique method. I wanted to keep it simple and opted for no stitching.
Place the bunnies into a frame and enjoy!
I originally made this for my sewing room, but then realized I have a quilt cut out for my girls’ room using the same fabrics, so I may have to give it to them at some point (if the quilt ever gets sewn ;)).
For now, I’ll enjoy it for myself!
