Snuggle Bunnies

Introducing the latest addition to PetitBebe’s shop – The Snuggle Bunny.

Here is the story of the creation of this little bunny:-)

After drawing up a basic image of a bunny I was happy with, I scanned it and converted it to jpg.

Then I opened up my Silhouette software and traced the image, , divided it in half, deleted the side I preferred least and copied and pasted the good side and inverted it so I had a mirror image bunny shape.  Then I offset it to make the lines smooth and enlarged it to the size I thought would make a good snuggle bunny size. I then cut out the image using the silhouette machine on thick paper and used this as my pattern. I did find the angle of some of the curves difficult to negotiate with my rotary cutter but a couple of snips with the scissors and I was on my way again.

My first snuggle bunny below is double sided minky and both sides are the same fabric.

The second bunny was a combination of baby pink minky waffle dots and the black/spots.

The third snuggle bunny was a combination of baby blue minky waffle dots and baby blue soft cotton knit.  I found that the cotton knit when sewn to the minky caused a slight curling effect which is not intentional but interesting and cool none the less.  It looks like the bunny’s ears and paws have a mind of their own.

Overall I prefer the combination of double sided minky the best as it feels nice to rub on your face and between your fingers.

Which one is your favourite?
