If you dont need another key chain, this project can be adapted to make Easter decorations or stuffed animals.
The little munchkin that inspired this project. Note all the chewed-up books in the background.
Your bunny key chain is also totally reversible!

1. Print out the PDF template, and cut out the template. Trace it onto fabric, and cut out two rabbits. If you are using the same fabric for the front and the back, you can fold the fabric in half and cut through both layers. If you are using two different fabrics, make sure to cut a front and a reverse of the template.

  Use a very small button or even a sequin for the eye. 

2. With a needle and thread, sew a small button or bead on each side of the fabric bunny for eyes.

  Fold both sides of the fabric piece into the center and press. Fold in half once more to make the fabric loop.

3. To make a loop for the ring, cut a 1-1/2-inch x 2-inch piece of fabric. Fold both sides in toward the middle and press. Fold in half again and press. Topstitch on both edges. Fold in half to make a loop and baste together at the ends to hold the loop together. Set aside.

  Place your fabric loop in between the two bunny pieces as shown.

Aunt_Dolly writes: As an avowed "rabbit person" myself, I love this keychain! I have made stuffed animal rabbit dolls and decorations but hadn't thought about a keychain before. Kayte, I too have little rabbit figurines that I have collected over the years from all over the world - interesting that this is such a universal animal! I keep all of them in an antique bowed-glass fronted dish cabinet that belonged to my great-grandmother which my husband has nicknamed "the rabbit hutch"!
Thanks too for the pattern; I have previously used free hand drawings and even cookie cutters as templates in the past.

MichaelaMurphy writes: Haha! Brava Kayte! I remember those creepy rabbit's foot key-chains. My grandparents used to give them to us and when we would realize what it actually was they would hurry to reassure us that it was 'good luck.' But after years of hearing about what my Irish family considered to be 'good luck' (bird droppings, broken dishes, falling on your face) I consider myself lucky in general...
