This is a stuffed animal I made for the birth of my boyfriends niece. It's made of baby-friendly material and has no dangerous pieces that could be swallowed or harm the baby in any way.

Step 1:

First, I made a cardboard template for the different pieces of the rabbit. Then I cut out the pieces of two types of fabric. For the belly and the inner ears I took a striped fabric with a strong contrast. I was told that babies like strong contrasts when they are very young, since their eyes are not yet capable of seeing tiny details. For the rest of the rabbit I chose toweling. The woman who sold me the toweling explained to me that this fabric is especially good for babies, because it shouldn't form lints, and you can wash it.

Thanks for all the nice comments! Love to see you like it! <br>
The bottle holder sounds great, you would probably need to adjust the size of the body and maybe make a inner lining or so, so that the heat of the bottle is not lost too quickly. Let me know how it went!
Would you recommend making one as a Hot water bottle holder? Think that would be pretty cool.
Aaaawwwww, I also want one, gonna make one!!
Very cute, simple and easy to make.
Very cute, and yes, I can see a couple of grown ups having one of their own hehe
Thank you for your comment! Happy you like it!!
Oh, that is so adorable! I'm glad you put that it is for grownups too, cause I so want one! To get an idea of size, do you know the dimensions for the template you used for the body in Step 1?
Thank you very much for your comment! Sure, i completely forgot about the sizes. So the body of the rabbit is approximately 20 cm (8 inches) tall (without ears and feet) and 14 cm (5.5 inches) wide. That's approximately the size i cut the fabric. By sewing you loose around 1-2 cm at each side. Hope that helps!
