DIY (92) – Plushies: easy to sew bunny

Hi everyone!

I absolutely adore this bunny! You don’t need to be very good in sewing to create one and you will find the pattern at the end of this post.

By the way, it’s done with an old sweater.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 92



old sweater – filling – needle and thread – colored fabric for the scarf – permanent marker

Start by printing the pattern. Cut the pieces and copy them on the fabric (I used an old sweater).

Sew together the ears and the arms (right sides together) leaving a little opening for inserting the filling.

Put the filling and close with an invisible point if you use normal fabric. With wool you won’t have this problem because if you sew carefully it will be hidden in the wool.

Use a thread that is as close as possible to the color of the fabric.

Once you have filled and closed the ears and arms, place them inside the pieces of the body (see picture). Also in this case the two body parts must be right side with right side.

Pin the pieces so that they won’t move. Sew the body parts leaving an opening for taking out the ears and arms once you reverse it. If you find this step too complicated, you can join the two parts of the body and after stick the ears and arms with needle and thread.

Put the filling in the body and close.

Draw the eyes with a permanent marker.

Draw a triangle for the nose and sew with pink thread (fill the triangle).

For the mouth, always with a pink thread, make a single stitch starting from the nose down. Repeat returning with the stitch to the nose. Don’t tighten the not too much, so that the line will keep straight.

Cut a piece of colored fabric for the scarf, add it to your bunny and you’re done!


For the arms I used the lower part of the sweater which has a texture.

Color the top with the color you prefer.

DIY (66) – T-shirt shaped card

Hi everyone!!

Here we are with another idea for Father’s Day: a beautiful T-shirt shaped greeting card.

You can decorate it with buttons and everything else you can think of.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 66



colored cardboard – scissors – glue – various objects that you have in the house to decorate (buttons, etc.)

Take an A4 sheet and fold the long sides towards the center (a colored paper will look nicer).

Bend out the top corners to form a V in the center.

Flip the sheet (top/bottom and front/back). On the side opposite the two protruding triangles, fold the upper side (about 2.5cm).

Turn the sheet and fold the left corner towards the center line.

Now bend the right corner, always towards the center, to form a small V.

Fold the bottom side of the sheet to the collar; the shirt is finished, having place just that side under the collar.

At this point it’s time to decorate and the shirt for dad!

Your Father’s day greeting card is ready!


DIY (56) – Bunny made with pom pom

Hi everyone!!

These bunnies are so easy to make and so cute.

Below you will find the step by step tutorial.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 56



Yarns of different colors – felt – hot glue – 1 size A4 cardboard – fishing thread

Begin by cutting an A4 cardboard in half (on long side).

Now fold it in half (you should get a square).

Starting from the open side, cut in half without going all the way, (look at video tutorial)

Insert the yarn into the opening and then roll it all around the cardboard. Obviously. The more you spin with the wire, the thicker your pompom pom.

When you have got a nice ball around your card, insert the thread in the cut. Go and join it with the first one you’ve inserted and remove the ball.

Join the two ends of thread, tighten it well and make a double knot. Your first ponpon is almost ready.

Now cut off the closed parts, leaving two long ends so use it to connect it to the muzzle. Shake the pom pom. Adjust the shape by cutting off the excess parts.

Create a smaller pompom for the rabbit’s snout and then another 3 smaller ones for the paws and the tail. Attach the body to the head by tying the threads you left long.

Cut out the ears from a piece of gray felt and the inside from a pink piece (x2).

Attach the ears, the eyes, the mustache (fishing wire) and, finally, the nose.

Your pom-pom bunny is ready!


DIY (42) – Homemade Mikado game

Hi everyone!!!

Do you want to create a game in minutes? The Mikado is originally from Japan and to make it at home you need few simple materials that you potentially have at home or that you can find in any supermarket: wooden sticks and acrylic color.

let’s start!

DIY N. 42



wooden sticks (for skewers) – acrylic colour – adhesive tape – brush

First prepare your palette. A sheet of aluminum paper is also fine. Create 7 custom colors by mixing the primary colors with the brush.

Divide the sticks into 8 groups to paint them in different colors. The sticks with fewer colors must be more numerous than those that allow you to earn a maximum of points.

Use adhesive tape to create multicolored sticks with two or three colors. Only one of the sticks should be dressed in 7 colors: it is the one that is worth the most points.

Use a jar to place the sticks you have painted. Make sure they don’t touch each other: if necessary, use one glass per color. Let them dry for about 30 minutes. Assign a number of points to each color: you can launch your Mikado game.

Don’t worry if it’s a bit different from the original game. The idea is not to create an exact replica, but to propose a fun activity for children and adults. Because the most important thing is to have fun. So, be creative and feel free to invent your own rules of the game!
