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.
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.
