Baby Binky Bunnies

After falling in love with the Molly Monkey pattern by Mmmcrafts, I just had to try the Baby Binky Bunny pattern too. Considering I know so many people who are having babies this year, it was a perfect excuse to give it a go.

The pattern is so well written, that I was able to complete two bunnies in one day. I'm a sewing slowpoke, so this was no small feat.


Excuse the dark pics. Rainy days = bad light

Yarn tails are the cutest little detail.



Each bunny was made with lightweight corduroy that I got on clearance. Their bellies and eyes are made from felt and the details are embroidered. The diapers are made from scrap fabric (the same I used for the first Molly Monkey's body).



The next day, I made the little patchwork blankies that go with each bunny. The ears and blankies were made with one charm pack that I bought at Joanns.



Shhh, they're sleeping!



The pink bunny is already living with its new owner, my cousin Bella, who just turned 2. The purple bunny will go to my cousin Nikki (not to be confused with my friend Nikki who just gave birth). She's due to have a baby girl in early July. With all the babies coming, I'm getting a head start.

P.S. - My neighbor Maddie loved her Monkey. Hubby and Pi saw her carrying it to school. That makes it totally worth it!

P.P.S. - Pi had her first physical therapy session yesterday and loved it. Like loved loved. She's such a little weirdo!

So CUTE!!! I love them! I'm very jealous of your fabric--did you buy those in NY? I've yet to find a decent NJ fabric store.
