This first batch went off in the mail to my nephew, Cooper. Baby Cooper is 9 months old, so I had to make sure there was nothing that could be harmful. These are made of a cozy flannel.
So let's get started. I used this pattern from Twig & Thistle as a jumping off point: BUNNY
The pattern had 2 bunnies and indicated cutting out a front and a back. I folded my fabric and placed one template on the fold. This way my cutting didn't have to be as accurate and I had a little less sewing to to.
The more of these I made, the more adaptations I made to the pattern. I made the tails a bit more prominent. I also added a sewn eye and whiskers to my bunnies.
I made blue boy bunnies and pink girl bunnies. I used the same template to make a pair of bunnies...a bigger bunny and a smaller bunny.
So art imitates life. These fabric bunnies were multiplying, like....well rabbits! My next batch of bunnies will be made of fabric scraps sewn together in strips.
I hope you enjoyed this....feel free to ask any questions you might have. Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate the Holiday!
