I had a nice surprise last week. It started with this little stuffed bunny I made a while back, for a customer to give to her friend who was having a baby. The free pattern is from RevoluzZza (the same place you can find the ninni monster pattern). I made just this one bunny, then put the pattern away and forgot all about it.
I got my surprise when I saw this picture, below, on Facebook. That beautiful baby is holding the bunny I made! Her mother was trying to find out where the bunny came from, because it is her daughter's all-time favorite toy--she carries it around all day and can't go to sleep at night without it. The mom said she doesn't know what they would do if the bunny was ever lost. They need a back-up bunny!!
Even though I'm not selling my work any more, there was NO WAY I could say no to this baby! So I made the back-up bunny, below. At the mother's request, I made it a little different than the first one--can you spot the changes?
If you are ever looking for a simple toy to make for a baby, consider this pattern. You can finish it in an afternoon, and it is baby-approved!
