Recently, I stitched up a cuddly gift for a sweet little girl using fun fur and a bit of Heather Ross's Briar Rose quilting cotton.
|I chose to embroider the bunny's eyes to make him look asleep.|
The pattern is a combination blanket/stuffie and can be found in the book Stitch Savvy by Deborah Moebes. Such a quick and cute gift idea for a little one!
It should be just right size for little hands to carry around, plus, with embroidered eyes and nose, no small parts (choking hazards) to worry about!
The sewing was easy, however, I do believe that my bunny's head is smaller than the one pictured in the book due to a typo. If I ever make this again, I will be adding seam allowances to the pattern for the bunny's head. Those ears are a bit on the skinny side!
Still, I don't think a one year old is going to mind that her bunny looks underfed. ;o) I'm hoping she'll love the cuddle factor and maybe even all those pink strawberries - I know I do!
I've got to say that sewing this little fellow was much easier than trying to figure out ways to capture a decent photo of him! lol...
