Baby Bunny

It's been a busy baby year every where I turn. One of our teachers at work had her first child back in March - a sweet little girl.

I thought I would try a project that would take less time than a quilt since it was the busy time of year for us. So I chose this cute yo-yo bunny pattern by Indygo Junction thinking it would work up quick. I love their stuff.

I used sweet 30's prints for the yo-yo's and I particularly like the pink plaid for the paws and inner ears. The large and extra large Clover "Quick" Yo-Yo Makers were the perfect sizes for this project and I made a few every night while watching television.

 
I did begin to wonder if this was going to be quicker than a quilt, but I eventually got it finished.

Instead of buttons for eyes, I cut some small pieces of black felt and stitched them in the same way I would have sewn in the buttons.

A final plaid puff made for a fluffy bunny tail.

I hate to say that she didn't receive the gift until July, but it was just in time for sweet baby girl to enjoy.
