A sweet and simple Bunny pattern - FREE, from me to you.

This wee bunny is perfect for little hands to play with, and makes a delightful newborn gift.

A lovely scrap busting project for utilising those precious fabric scraps - perhaps even try some simple hand embroidery ...



  • Each Twig + Tale PDF patterns contain layered pattern pieces and simple step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear photographs, as well as a summary of the instructions. To inspire you, there is also a gallery of tester photos and our famous Upcycle Guide, offering suggestions for repurposing old garments into gorgeous new items.

Materials you need at home:

  • Scraps of fabric
  • Stuffing
  • Optional Ribbon, embroidery thread or other embellishments of your choice!
  • I recommend a lightweight wool or wool blend as my first choice. Anything heavier than this will create a challenge when turning the bunny out after sewing. You could use an ultra fine cashmere or angora sweater if you are wanting a very soft bunny.
  • Linen or cotton will also work - however, something with a slight “give” in it gives a superior result.

Twig + Tale


From my treehouse studio hidden within the New Zealand forest, I draft clothing and toy patterns that capture the essence of childhood storybooks. To me, sewing is a magical journey, full of adventure and the wonderful tales that each material holds. I believe in reusing fabrics when possible and bringing new life to old things, in spending time (sometimes together, sometimes alone) to let the spirit run free.

Twig & Tale is for everyone who shares a love of creativity and an adventurous spirit—beginner sewers especially! It's a celebration of the innocence of childhood and the wonder of nature. It's about comfy clothes and warm things like hugs and capes and coats. It's about handmade, love, and imaginary play—featuring classic, simple patterns that inspire us all to tell a story.
