So I saw The Last Mimzy this weekend and want my own Mimzy!

I can knit, crochet, and sew, but any type of medium will do. I just want a simple stuffed animal pattern that I can convert to make a bunny with. I'm willing to draft my own pattern, but since I haven't had much luck with that in the past, I'd love to have something to go by. Cheesy

Thanks in advance!

Now I want a Mimzy too. I have actually done a bunny plushie before, quite simple one, though. I could try to find the sewing patterns I did a while back, if it would help you a bit.

If you fancy a knitted one, maybe this pattern could be altered to look more Mimzy?

Hi,
I'm a newbie here and I actually know (okay not really, deeply personally know but I do consider her a friend) the artist who made Mimzy for the movie.  Her name is Daphne Blau and she's a talented teddy bear artist from New Hampshire.  Here's her website:

http://www.backroadbears.com/

I E-mailed her about this because I know she is selling the bears but don't know if she ever considered selling patterns.  So maybe she'll stop by and let you know.  Either way, I'm sure she'll be really happy to know that you loved her bunny so much!

Hi!
Thanks, Lisa, for letting me know that Mimzy has some crafty fans!!

Due to copyright laws I can not sell the pattern or even give it away! The movie production company created the Mimzy concept on paper so they hold the copyright.

But here's a challenge for you all... if I can do it so can you!! I was given the drawing and had to make it into 3D!!! Took 4 tries to get it right! You've got a photo up above there..... give it a try! Grin

I don't blame you if you don't want to! I wish I could tell you of a pattern out there that is even close but I don't know of one!

I'm glad you like her though! Means a lot to me!!!! Makes it worth all the hair pulling and swearing I did trying to make her to the director's liking! Roll Eyes

Thank you so much, Daphne Smiley Your challenge and encouragement really means a lot! I'm planning on knitting the main body parts, because I'm better at that than sewing lol. I'm still doing some research to get better at short-row shaping before I take on this project, but I'll definitely be doing some sketching.

I must tell you, the stitching on the ears, to me, is the most endearing part of Mimzy. She's such a charming creature, and I throw thousands of compliments your way Smiley

what about altering a crocheted pattern for mimzy? There's a bunch of bunny patterns out there that would not require much to make a mimzy-esque character.

You can buy a the official Mimzy replica at Angelicdreamz but I don't know if that's what you want. The price is a bit steep (I paid $90 for one) but that was a pre-order. Mmm-mm? Maybe that's not what your  looking for though.
