Well, not actually "velveteen". This little bunny above is made of super soft, cuddly minky fabric. He is such a squishy, snuggly toy! I made him last month as part of a baby shower gift for a very dear friend. We were asked to bring our favorite children's book for the baby. I chose The Velveteen Rabbit and decided to make a toy to go along with it.
If you're looking for a stuffed bunny pattern, you'll find this pattern included in my book! It is one of the easier projects and one of my favorites. Even better - it's a quick project! You can sew up a bunny or two in an evening - no problem!
I've mentioned before my fondness for rabbits.
Me and my husband and my bunny...many years ago.
So when sketching out what toys I wanted to design for this book, a bunny was a MUST. I decided on a simple design. And I'm so happy with the result. A lot of little kids in my family will be receiving some stuffed bunnies in their Christmas stockings this year.
The bunny below was one of the "final drafts" of this toy, "claimed" almost immediately by my youngest daughter (it's been slept upon many nights). I used cotton velour and cream organic cotton sherpa fabric. He is stuffed lightly with wool and is so warm and cuddly.

Here is a better photo. I love this pattern! I hope some of you love it, too!
