When I was in the third grade I had a teacher, Ms. Cluster, who was very ill . Shortly after I arrived into her class after moving into town, she went into the hospital. It was almost Easter and not long after we read the Velveteen rabbit that I decide to make her a get well present, a stuff bunny. I only a had a tiny scrape of blue fabric and I stuffed it with crumbled paper because that was all I had. I gave it to Ms. Cluster' daughter to ensure a safe passage but alas it never arrived to the proper owner because the next school year when Ms. Cluster finally came back, she had no clue what I was talking about. It was just another one of those childhood disappointments.
The good news is that I've learned a bit more about sewing in the last 3 months and I can make Mr. Bunny again. In addition I've created him with an almost hidden back pocket that enables him to smell fresh and clean. (This idea was inspired by the countless used fabric softener sheets that I pulled out of the dryer all crumbled up and still smelling fresh.) He would have been the perfect pet for my childhood since my parents didn't allow pets. And of course if your dog sleeps by himself in some lonely corner bed at night, Mr. Bunny can cuddle with him and smell just as good as you when you put on your favorite shirt, fresh out of the dryer. Plus with Easter right around the corner, Mr. Bunny would make a sweet gift to just about anyone.
BTW if you like clothes pin rocking chair one of the eggs is on, I made an instuctable on that too.
Okay to make Mr. Bunny you will need some basic sewing supply:
1/2 yard of fabric of your choice
yarn of your choice
stiff plastic (I used a cupcake liner packaging box)
optional: used fabric softener sheets and ribbon
