Handmade Large Bunny Rabbits from In the Hoop Online

Handmade Large Bunny Rabbits from In the Hoop Online
Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here. I shared another bunny last time from a pattern I bought.... this Bunny pattern from In the Hoop Online.  This is such a lovely pattern from Adele and it comes together so easily too.  Adele also has a fantastic step by step video tutorial on her YouTube channel.  I said that I had another 3 bunnies to make and these are 2 that I made for my 2 nephews.  I do have 1 more bunny to finish but I ran out of stuffing.  So, I'm waiting for that to come in and I will share that wee bunny then.
I adore their big bunny feet.  They are so cute.  I hope this wee dude doesn't look too sinister with his big red face, lol. .....I'm hoping his big blue eyes makes him a little less terrifying, although I'm not sure they'll work....I probably should have picked a different fabric for this wee guys face but he's made now, teehee.  Hopefully he doesn't make my nephew cry...eek!
I used Marvel fat quarter fabrics because my wee nephew is super hero mad.
Their little Dicky-bows are a nice wee touch.  They aren't part of the pattern.  I added these myself as I felt that the neck area was missing something.  I think these work well.
Although the arms and legs are attached using proper toy making safety cotter joints, as they are toys for my nieces and nephews, I wanted to ensure that there'd be no issues with limbs tearing off.  So, I also added button joints to the arms and legs too.  It just gives added protection but the arms and legs still move well, without impeding their movements.
Here's the 2 boys with the little girl bunny from the last post.  I have 1 more to share and that's the bunnies heading off to their new homes.

And that's it from me folks.  Toodles Noodles......Lee aka Crafty Loops xx
