Handmade Bunnies

I have loved Fiona's rabbits for a very long time.  I wished I owned one of her originals.  They always sold out before I could get one.  When she put together a pattern I jumped at the chance to make some.  I knew it wouldn't be the same.  How could it be?  I had to do it anyway.  :)

The pattern is wonderful!!!  I have never sewn anything like this and the pattern was so easy to follow.  The trickiest part for me was turning and stuffing the arms. 

These little guys still don't have clothes but I just finished their faces this morning and I just had to take their picture.

Now humor me and pretend this is all happening the night before Easter.

Supplies Used
Hop Skip Jump, Jack Rabbit Pattern
Wool Flannel
Wool Stuffing


  1. I think you chose the *perfect* fabrics for these. They are so, so cute! Did you try a chopstick to help with the turning and stuffing? The arms and legs do look quite long though, so I'm not surprised that they were tricky to do. I think this pattern has just jumped ahead on my 'must do' list. :-)

  2. Oh please make one! If only for my own selfish reasons. I want to see a "Georgia" one. Seriously. :)

    The arms are about the size of your first finger. My chopsticks came in very handy... when the weren't borrowed by my son to sword fight. Boys.

  3. They are adorable! No wonder you had to make them. By the way, my daughter's name is spelled just like yours! A very uncommon way to spell the name, but beautiful!

  4. Hi Adrianne, thanks for posting about your bunnies - they look beautiful! (Sorry about those lanky limbs!) x Fiona

  5. Could you send me the pattern? angel-irving@hotmail.com :)
