Cutting fabric and filler preparation
Making a toy in the form of a bunny begins with the construction of a pattern and the preparation of materials for the top of the product and filling. First of all, this applies to cherry stones. Before packing in a toy, they must be thoroughly rinsed, boiled in water with a small amount of vinegar and thoroughly dried.
All the details of the toy must first be applied to the pattern, then cut and transferred to the fabric. Do not forget to add seam allowances when cutting. As a result, 4 pieces of fabric should be made for the lower and upper extremities, 2 or 4 for the body (depending on whether the seam is in the middle or only on two sides), 4 elements for the ears (2 of them the same color and 2 others) , 3 flaps for the formation of the head and a round tail.
Detailed instructions for making warmers
After everyone did cut out of the fabric, you can proceed with their stitching. First, the elements of the upper and lower limbs, ears and head are connected together. They need to be sewn to the body of the bunny and filled with filler. Thanks to this, the cherry-seed warmer will look like a real soft toy. Joints of the tissue between the body and the limbs must be sewn (seized) from the inside. If this is not done, the sintepon with the bones will be mixed, and the toy will lose its presentable appearance.
Now you can sew the body of a hare. You need to do this from the wrong side with a suture seam. When there is already a small hole, the toy needs to be turned out. From the plastic bottle, make a funnel and pour the bones into the resulting cover through the hole. To sew a hare. On the reverse side, sew a tail, filled with sintepon and embroider eyes on the head.

By the way, the price of a hot-water bottle in a store is about two thousand rubles, but it hardly exceeds the quality that is made by oneself.
