Mooshy Belly Bunny

The girls get together for craft night semi regularly (there's one tonight, woohoo!) and last time I made this Mooshy Belly Bunny that I had pinned a while back. (Click on the picture for a link to the tutorial from Chez Beeper Bebe.)


Here's how mine turned out:


Hm...somehow not quite as adorable. I realize now that the fabric I used was way too stretchy so the head in particular ended up too wide when I stuffed it. It was pretty quick to make (who am I kidding, it took me 3 seperate occasions to finish but in all fairness, the little boy above often steals my attention). Isaac is learning to grab things so this was the perfect time for him to get a new toy. Or a toy in general. I got rid of all of our baby toys because I didn't like any of them so it's time to start getting a few. I'd love to get him one of the nice, wooden teething toys that I've seen on Etsy as well but anyways....

Now Adrian wants one so I may make his a little bigger and I'll probably make another one for Isaac but his seems like it should have a rattle inside. I wonder where I would find that without ordering a ton...


Now I'm off to find something to make for tonight's craft night!

Cute! And I have a friend up here who makes baby balls and she said she puts cheap cat toys inside!

I love that bunny, too!

I saved a link for an Etsy shop that sells the rattle inserts. The link I saved was for a set of 5 of them. There are only sets of 10 in the shop right now - but maybe they'd do a custom listing... Worth a shot! http://www.etsy.com/shop/AmericanFeltandCraft?ref=seller_info

Or maybe I could do something with 10 of them...as if I don't have enough craft stuff to use "just in case." I'll have to try asking for a custom listing, thanks for the idea!
