My son is 9 months old, and has one and a half teeth... This disturbs me quite a lot, due to the fact that I am still breastfeeding. Needless to say, I am in the process of slowly weaning him. Everything is going great, but I foresee trouble ahead when I try to get rid of his final feeding of the day. He refuses to go to sleep without it.
While looking for a solution to this dilemma, I read somewhere that because babies use breastfeeding as a comfort thing more then anything else, I could try to replace the breast with a stuffed toy or favorite blanket.
With that in the back of my mind the other day, I was looking through posts during nap time (hooray for nap time!) when I came across this:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292024.0
Naturally, I fell in love with it. I really like the idea of the bottom being flat, because (in theory) the bunny isn't going to roll off of a surface as easily as a round bear would.
I used the pattern as inspiration, and altered it a bit to suit my needs.
My bunny has no tail. Instead, it has yellow tags, because my son loves tags. A lot. Also, the colours are much different. I used a baby blanket that was always too small for him, even from birth, and some leftover yellow fabric I had laying around. I stuffed it with leftover quilt batting.
I stayed up till 1am finishing this, it took me 3 hours, because I was so determined to complete it before going to bed. It would have kept me awake, knowing that I had not finished it...
It's completely hand sewn.
