Claire is going to a birthday party tonight, and decided this morning that she wanted me to sew her friend a bunny like the ones I made the kids for Easter. I couldn't resist her desire to give a handmade gift, so I put my other plans aside and started sewing.
The pattern is by Hop, Skip, Jump. I didn't have flannel, and Claire rejected regular cotton and linen because it wasn't soft enough. We found a piece of minky, and while I didn't think it would work, we gave it a try. Slippery stuff to sew up, but it's forgiving enough that any wonkiness doesn't really show. Phew. Claire even helped me stuff the legs and arms-- my least favorite part.
Yay for handmade gifts! And for getting to skip our trip to Target.
