PEEPS Garland with Oly Fun Fabric

Growing up I was a huge fan of PEEPS . . . those sugar covered marshmallow bunnies that would fill my Easter basket each year.  This year I decided to create a PEEPS bunny garland using the Oly Fun fabric from Fairfield.  

For this project I used the yellow, pink and light purple (orchid) Oly Fun.  


I searched PEEPS online to find a bunny outline I liked, and then I printed it out at the size I wanted.  I made mine about 4 inches tall, but you can make yours bigger or smaller depending on the look you want for your finished project.


Next I traced the PEEP outlines onto the Oly Fun with a pencil.  You could also tape or pin the PEEP shape to the Oly Fun and then cut around it.


Here is my pile of PEEPS after I had them all cut out.  Since Oly Fun will not fray you don't have to finish the edges at all.  I love this feature of the fabric.  This really saved me a lot of time on this project.

Next step is attaching the bunnies to the ribbon.  I could have sewn them on, but I decided to use Aleen's Fabric Fusion instead.  The Fabric Fusion holds so well and allowed me to attach the PEEPS to the ribbon without any stitching showing like there would have been if I sewed them on.


Once the Fabric Fusion dried I hung the PEEP garland in our kitchen.  These little bunnies look so adorable!
