How to Make a Squeeze Bottle Bunny
Toy for Your Dog
If your pup loves to
hear the sound of an empty water bottle being squished, she will love
this squeeze water bottle bunny toy. The soft thick lamb's wool fabric
quiets the sound down too.
How to Make a Squeeze
Bottle Bunny Toy for Your Dog
You Will Need:
lambs wool fabric or
cream colored flannel fabric
pink, brown, and blue
scrap pieces of felt
jute rope for the
basic sewing supplies
Cut a piece of fabric 15.5"
long x 12" wide.
Fold the fabric in half and cut
a "V" about 4" down the top as shown. These will be the bunny's ears.
Open up the bunny. We are going
to sew a face onto one side which will be the front of the bunny.
Cut eyes and ears from felt scraps.
Zig-zag appliqué the bunny's
ears and eyes on. Make sure you do not sew them too close to the edge of
the fabric. You need to leave room for a seam allowance.
Take 2 pieces of thin jute rope
and tie a tight knot in the middle as shown.
Cut a nose for the bunny from
brown felt and place over top of the whiskers.
Zig-zag over top of the nose. Make sure you back-tack plenty of times to
hold on the nose and the whiskers.
Tape the whiskers to the center
of the nose so they are out of the way when you sew the bunny together.
Place the bunny pretty sides
together and pin around the bunny top and side.
Leave the bottom alone. That is where we are going to
put the empty water bottle.
Sew around the bunny using the
pressure foot as your guideline.
Trim seams if
Turn your bunny pretty side
out. Carefully poke out the ears. Remove the tape holding the whiskers down.
Stuff the head and ears of the bunny.
Squish the bottle a tiny bit and then put a lid on the
empty bottle. Place the bottle inside the bunny craft. You can add more
stuffing if there is room.
Hand sew the bottom opening
closed nice and tight. You may want to sew this twice for extra strength
since your pup will be playing with the toy.
Look how cute your bunny
squeeze bottle dog toy is!
Have your pup enjoy her new
bottle bunny dog toy!
* Because I used lambs
wool fabric and I also wrapped quilt batting around the bottle, Kody still
was able to hear the squeaky sound, and my husband and I were able to
watch TV while she played with it. Normally we have to take store bought
bottle toys away from her while we are watching TV because they are so
