Meet Mr. Menswear Bunny.  I've been wanting to do this project for quite some time and in the middle of packing up our house, I had a bolt of creativity and decided it was time to making this bunny. 

I had the fabric sitting by my desk for ages and it came together in two days.  I found the fabric at Value Village months earlier and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but I liked it.  

I printed out the pattern and started cutting and sewing.  I didn't have any cotton filling so I spent the next day looking for some at craft and fabric stores but wasn't satisfied with the large bags of stiff poly-fill.  Instead I went to Ikea and bought a little throw pillow for $2 with a soft cotton poly fill.  It worked perfectly.  I stuffed that bunny and hand stitched his eyes and nose.

I loved making him and can see my self making another soon! I gave this one to my niece for her 1st birthday.

oh i LOVE it!! my sister has handmade bunnies and monkeys for Savi and I love them so much, I hope to make them for my own little ones...in the future. :)
they are much cuter and better than buying the regular gross stuffed animals from the store!

I agree, much cuter and better! It's much more satisfying making it than buying it!
