Peter Rabbit Coat Template

Whether you’re setting the scene for a Peter Rabbit baby shower or bringing the charm of Mr. McGregor’s garden to your own backyard, Peter’s distinctive blue jacket is a must-have. Inspired by the image from Beatrix Potter’s tales where Peter’s coat and shoes are repurposed as a scarecrow in Mr McGregor’s garden, this simple DIY project allows you to craft a sweet and simple centrepiece with no sewing required.

“Mr. Mcgregor hung up the little jacket and the shoes for a scare-crow to frighten the blackbirds.”

  1. Hi – I want to make an 8-year old girl one of these. Is this pattern for a stuffed animal? This is adorable, by the way.

    Thank you.
