{week 6} toy-making

Something I love about the handmade community is the way that people help each other out with ideas, advice and, in this case, the pattern for this project! Thank you to super toy-maker Clare for sending me the very cute bunny pattern which I put my own little twist on to make this little guy…


I’m trying not to buy new materials when I don’t have to so I decided to use a woollen jumper that I’d managed to shrink in the wash. I used brown vintage buttons for his eyes and a piece of velvet ribbon as a fetching neckerchief.


Mr.Bunny went on a little adventure and met a very strange creature….

Mr.Bunny & Toby

After he’d finished playing with Toby he decided to make some cakes.

After all that excitement it was time to kick back and relax in front of the TV.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s project. What will be next I wonder?
