A Not So Wee Bunny!

So, last night I finally finished a project that has been on my to-do list for years!  
See, I found this Wee Bunny Pattern from Wee Wonderfuls a couple of years ago, and instantly fell in LOVE!

I printed the pattern with every intention of making one, but just could never seem to find the right time.
That was, however, until last night!
So, I dug out my pattern, and got ready to sew, but something was missing...
Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE the original Wee Bunny,
but I kind of thought it was...well, just too wee...
So, I decided to enlarged the pattern by 200%!
 Yep, Not So Wee Bunny after all. :o)
Next, I cut out my fabric...
and just followed the instructions. 
Random Not So Fun Fact: Sewing or Embroidering eyes on a softie is something that I dread.
So, instead I use plastic doll eyes that just snap into place.

See, much easier, and much cuter than anything I could ever produce. :o) 
Ok, so after I got him all sewn together it was time to stuff. 
Now, because this is a Not So Wee Bunny, it took a lot of stuffing.

(It was more like stuffing a pillow than a softie). 

Ok, so once he was all stuff I just hand stithced up the hole in his back, and that was it!

Introducing, the Not So Wee Bunny!

Isn't he cute! 
He's kind of lumpy, but I just LOVE him!

I still haven't added the tail or the nose,
and I am not sure if I am going too.

I kind of like him just the way he is, but who knows, I will probably change my mind by tomorrow. :o) 
So, another thing to cross off the to-do list!
Even though it took me a couple of years to complete, I think he was well worth the wait. :o)
What do you think?
Happy Wednesday!
Oh, and A Happy Leap Day to you too!

Pin It!
