Patchwork & Ribbons Bunny Ear Wood Teether {tutorial}

Bunny-Ear-Teether

I saw these wooden ring Bunny Ear Teethers on Instagram and Etsy and had to have one for Lydia.  But, naturally, I wanted it to be a patchwork one.  And since she really likes those ribbon blankies, I thought maybe adding some ribbon and ric rac would be a great addition.  These are super easy to make, and I’m sure there are lots of tutorials, but here’s the simple way I made mine. Download the PDF shape here! I plan to make a couple of the fabric parts, so when one’s in the wash, I’ll have a spare too.

Teether-1

Sew together a variety of 5″ strips that are between 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ in width until the piece measures about 16″ long x 5″ wide.

Teether-2

Fold the patchwork in half and cut to the bunny ear shape.  Add ribbons and ric rac if desired.

Teether-3

Place right sides together on a rectangle of Cuddle fabric {Shannon is my favorite!} and stitch around the edge with a 1/4″ seam allowance.  Leave a 3″ opening on one edge {I recommend stay stitching if the opening is over seams of the patchwork}.

Teether-4

Trim the Cuddle and clip the curves {it creates a lot of fuzz, so I do mine over a trash can!}.  Then carefully turn the bunny ears right side out through the opening.

Teether-5

Then, top stitch 1/8″ around the edge, stitching the opening closed.  Additionally, stitch along seam lines if desired. Then loop it through a wooden ring {I got mine from Sunny Sprout} and give it to your favorite baby:
