New Addition to the Family

This afternoon I whipped together a new addition to our little family. Originally I planned to give her away as a baby shower present but I've been informed by my oldest son that he thinks she will miss Leslie (his small stuffed rabbit) and the stress of the afternoon has caused New Green Bunny to take to her bed. I actually had to grab this rabbit and run in order to take a picture.

Next time I make one I think the ears should not curve outward. A nice teardrop shape would work better. It's hard to see her mouth in the pictures, but next time I'll remember to embroider the mouth before I stuff the silly creature and most likely a darker thread would show up better. Chris really does like her mouth pink though, he says that real rabbit lips and noses are pink.

That's cute did you have a pattern or did you make it up? I'll try and find Nancy's really easy teddy bear pattern and send it to you, cause I don't think you're going to get that one out of the house. In fact I think you might have trouble with anything shaped like a rabbit.

I made her up. She started with the kinda peanut shaped body you sent me and then Sam thought she needed arms and legs. Then nobody really liked the plain ears that look like her arms... so we have the kooky ears that would have worked better with Pelltex in them. Chris does think she would make a good shower gift. He says she's just spending the night in his bed... not living with us. I'm going to try and make another one (possibly using higher contrast fabric for the front and back) before he's awake tomorrow morning.

you could make 50 and open your own store and make dozens of dollars! Those are cuuuuute. Send on to and perhaps you'll be rich and famous.
