Easter is coming up quick and I haven’t gotten my fill of bunnies yet! So here is one of my last bunny projects, a bunny slippers pattern! (Also see the free bunny plush pattern if you missed it!)
I made this nightgown with flannel bunny fabric fabric from Ann Kelle. I used my Harper Top pattern and extended it a few inches (about 6″) to make a cute little dress. It was easy and I love the short length and sleeves for summer.
After I made the nightgown, I had some extra bunny fabric and thought some slippers would be fun. The slippers are lined with the same flannel fabric and the outside is made from terry cloth/towel fabric that was in my stash.
They are easy to make and really fun! This pattern should fit a good range of toddler sizes, probably around 7-10. I stuffed them with batting so they are cozy and soft.
So let’s make them!

Easter Slippers Sewing Instructions
Print out the pattern pieces and then cut the following pieces:
From flannel lining:
From Towel or Outer material:
Let’s start sewing! Use a 3/8″ seam allowance on all pieces.
First, sew the ear pieces together along the side edges. Clip points and trim seam allowance.
Stack the batting underneath all lining pieces. There will be 4 layers for each sole and 2 layers for each top piece. As you are sewing, pretend the batting and lining pieces are all once piece. Sew the top to the sole with right sides together on both the lining and outer pieces.
Sew around and trim seam allowance.
Baste ears to the outside of the outer fabric main piece.
Now turn the towel part INSIDE OUT and leave the lining RIGHT SIDE OUT and stuff the lining inside the outer slipper. Pin around the edges.
Sew up the top and around the heel. Leave a 2.5″ opening on one side of the sole for turning.
Clip seam allowances and turn.
Now fold under the openings and sew with a slip stitch.
Add embroidery floss whiskers (and a face if you want!)…
…and you’re done!
Enjoy your new bunny slippers!
