Nicki, in her infinite wisdom, recommended that we get Liam a boo-boo bunny. Evidently Carol Anne gave her one when Bella was born and it proved very useful indeed. So, I figured that I’d help the Easter Bunny out. Turns out these little guys are as easy to make as they are cute. For those not in the know…
If a boo boo has you feeling crummy,
stick an ice cube in my tummy.
Hold it to your boo boo tight,
Soon everything will be all right!
Each little guy took about 2 hours following these directions. They could have been completed in less time, but I chose to sew every overlap and make slightly more complicated bows than necessary.
The bunny was made using a fancy $3 white washcloth purchased at Wal-Mart. The ribbon is grosgrain that is folded in half, the tail is a pompom made with white cotton yarn, and the eyes and nose are embroidered with DMC floss.
Here are the instructions for the beak and feet using worsted weight orange cotton and an F hook.
