March Sewing: A Bunny For Mark

I made a bunny for Ellie for her first Easter so I figured Mark should have one too! I used this adorable bunny tutorial, but I used flannel instead of wool felt for the outside and wool stuffing instead of cotton for the inside.  The combination of the soft flannel and wool inside makes this little bunny so soft and cuddly!

It even has a cute little tail!

The ears are my favorite part.  Actually, that smiling boy is my favorite!

Ellie is a bit jealous of Mark’s bunny and insists that they need to share it. This morning, she was nursing it and putting it to sleep.  My challenge will be to keep her from claiming it before Mark is big enough to claim it!

The only real change I made to the tutorial was with the eyes.  The tutorial calls for making French knots for the eyes.  I hate making French knots and avoid them whenever possible but they are also pretty fragile.  I figured that little fingers would quickly find and pull on them and that would be the end of the eyes.  Instead, I used a satin stitch and sewed on eyes like I did on Ellie’s doll.
