Bunny Rabbits have been adored for centuries! They are one of the first animals to take on human qualities in children's story books (dressing, eating, talking). Do you remember some of the classic bunny tales? Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, the Velveteen Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland's White Rabbit, Flopys, Mopsy and Cotton Tail and of course Bugs Bunny, just to name a few.
Why do children love bunnies so much? It could be there long ears, twitchy little noses, fluffy tails and bouncy way of travelling... However, it most certainly is their quiet demeanor and the way they love and care for their young.
I love the nostalgia of the classic rag dolls - made modern - and making a Modern Rag Doll Bunny just tops the charts for me!!! The Bunny Doll Pattern has wonderful embroidery detail on her optional floral crown and I love her handy tummy pocket. She uses it to carry her carrots, her babies and even her laundry!
Just look at her cute fluffy pompom tail!
Patterns include PDF templates for (3) sizes of doll in the sewing pattern and machine embroidery files for (3) hoopings in (3) sizes for the machine embroidery pattern.
