Bunny door stop

One of my lovely customers suggested I make a door stop after a whale I made for her ended up (during play) next to her door stop. I really liked the idea and when I had some time to experiment (and re-discovered the perfect pattern for it) I made these. The pattern they’re made of was made by Abby Glassenberg from While she naps. The bunnies are as easy a sew as they can be and fun and relatively fast to make. They’re nice scrap busters too, if the scraps are reasonably sized.

The door stops are 16 centimetres high (although almost twice that at 30cm if you count the ears) and 14 centimetres wide. They require a 55x40cm piece of fabric for the body and ears, but they can be made in a more fabric-saving way so if you have a smaller piece. Just message me and we’ll figure something out! Optionally I can add a firmer type of interfacing on the ears so that they’ll stand up instead of droop down a bit. Make sure to mention that if you want it.

The door stops will have a leather bottom. If you prefer a vegan version I can do a full wrap scrap version too and we can add latex to the bottom to give it extra anti-slip properties. For weight I use small glass beads/granulate. This material is safe to wash, does not emit microplastics and is recyclable. I add the beads sewn up in a fabric pouch for extra security. After all, nobody wants their doorstop to start spreading random glass beads everywhere!

If you’re interested in having your own custom wrap scrap bunny door stop made, don’t hesitate to contact me. You can find more information about prices and sizes on the Prices and sizes page.

I love these so much, I had to make another one. 

This one features Oscha Tian Ma Mica and I must admit it's a bit of an odd combination, horses on a bunny, but I've loved the wrap and the scrap had the perfect dimensions for it (these will need a 50cm full wrap width piece). 

This one also had a leather bottom, 'wrong side out' and that makes for better anti-slip properties than a full wrap scrap 'door stop' does!

She's up for draw in the chatter group when I have the chance to get it all organised so stay tuned (but give me a couple of days to get it organised).

Stuffed with aniseed infused shell sand she's NOT meant as a cuddle toy but really is meant as a door stop. She's a bit lighter than what I aimed for at around 700 grams but I'm getting there!

An experiment that I'm loving and will be improving along the way: door stops! The idea was suggested to me by a customer and I really liked it, so decided to just experiment with it.

This first one is all wrap scrap. The 25% enlarged pattern needs some additional adjustments but the next one will have a leather bottom for more durability and 'anti-slip' properties. (And I didn't add the tail...)
