Easy Easter Sewing Projects

easy Easter towel to sew

These easy Easter sewing projects are simple and fun to make. Grab the free Sulky bunny template for appliqué towels and print or draw a name onto Sulky Stick ‘n Stitch to transfer to a rope basket. Gift these easy Easter sewing projects to friends and family or display them in your home to add to your décor.


Grab a pack of Sulky Perfect Appliqué Fusible Web and appliqué cute bunnies onto kitchen or bath towels, pillows and Easter baskets. Use Sulky Filaine Thread to create fluffy bunny tails that have a faux fur effect!

First, apply the fusible web to a bunny-themed cotton fabric.

Then, use a lightbox to transfer the Sulky Bunny Templates onto the paper side of the fusible web. Be sure to also outline the bunny tails.

Cut out each bunny. Then, outline the bunny tails onto the fabric right side using a removable fabric marker.

Set the machine for free-motion stitching. Insert a size 100/16 Universal Needle and thread it with Filaine Thread. Use 60 wt. Bobbin Thread in the bobbin.

Remove the paper backing from one bunny appliqué. Place the bunny on top of a piece of Sulky Tear-Easy™ Stabilizer.

Stitch the outline of the bunny tail onto the bunny. Then, fill in the tail with long stitches, moving the stabilizer as slowly as needed to ensure a mix of long and short stitches that are fairly close together. Alternatively, hand stitch long and short stitches inside the bunny tail outline, using the Filaine Thread and a hand sewing needle.

When the tail is filled in, gently tear away the stabilizer behind the bunny.

Repeat to stitch each tail, using either free-motion or hand embroidery techniques.


Place each bunny on the chosen blank (such as the featured kitchen towel). If desired, place the towel over the bunny template on a lightbox to evenly space each bunny according to the pattern template. Fuse each bunny in place. (Be sure to remove the fabric marker before fusing, if needed, prior to fusing if not using a heat-removable marking pen.)

Install a size 70/10 Universal Needle and thread it with Sulky 50 wt. Cotton Thread. Use the same 60 wt. Bobbin Thread in the bobbin.

Straight stitch just inside the appliqué edges.

When the appliqué stitching is complete, the easy Easter sewing project is complete! Optionally add more embellishment, such as pom-pom or rickrack trim.

This Easter sewing project requires either a premade or self-made Rope Basket. To make your own rope basket using your sewing machine, check out our convenient rope basket kits and Creative Rope Baskets Embroidery Session.

Print the desired name or phrase onto a sheet of Sulky Stick ‘n Stitch Stabilizer. Make sure to print on the fabric-like side and set the printer to the lowest ink setting, if possible.

Cut the design out, leaving about a 1/2″ border. Place the “sticker” onto the basket, where desired.

Thread a hand sewing needle with two strands of Sulky Filaine Thread. This thread is 100% acrylic and has a yarn-like look to it.

When the embroidery is complete, rinse away the stabilizer under warm, running water. After the stabilizer is gone, let dry thoroughly on a towel.

Fill the basket with Easter goodies and gift it to a special little one! (Here is the basket I used.)
