awesome Smiley

Cheesy Thanks!

completely hand sewn! you are one dedicated mom. i love it! it's like a bunny/dino. (the tags look like little scales) good job!

Bundino! EXACTLY! lol he's sort of into dinosaurs lately, so I suppose that's quite appropriate. Thank you!

This is so cute. I love the tags. I also have a tag baby. A word of advise though. Make another identical one. It will come in handy down the road when you need to wash it.

I never thought of that...sound advice! The first thing he did when I gave it to him this morning was chewed on one of the ears haha. I can see it needing to be washed somewhat frequently lol

i just weened my daughter from the bottle to the sippy cup and she went pretty easily 
she has one of those glow bears as a comfort toy but urs is so much cuter.

Aww, thank you... I'm glad it went well!

I've just finished stuffing the one I made and would love to cover it in fabric - how did you do that???

You did an awesome job!

First, I chose my fabric. I figured that if it was really fuzzy fabric, then other fabric would stick to it really annoyingly, but if it was an overly shiney fabric, then fabric would slide all over it really annoyingly. So, I went with something in between (leaning toward the fuzzy side).

Then I draped it over the form, occasionally folding or cutting it to suit my needs. I used pins to stick it to the form, the kind with the big ball of coloured plastic on the heads. I learned the hard way that sometimes the pin can slide into the form a little too deep, and it becomes really, really hard to pull out again.

After pieces of fabric were where I wanted them to be, I got out my hot glue gun, and piece by piece glued the fabric right to the duct tape, and/or to other pieces of fabric. When I had everything all glued down, I randomly stitched all of the edges of fabric to the other edges of fabric. This was really an unnecessary step, as the hot glue worked wonderfully!

So...hot glue. lol Sorry I'm so long winded! Cheesy

Thank you so much for making this awesome bunny!
I hope you don't mind, but I used it as inspiration for my own:

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:


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. Smiley

Here are pictures:

Your son, and his little lab coat are just adorable!

I want one in my size, except that it wouldn't be nearly as charming on me as it is on him.

And of course he's distracted, that book is amazing! (Although I'm partial to "Moo Baa LaLaLa" myself Wink )

Hehe, thank you Cheesy
I'll have to look that one up! Sounds...distractingly awesome.

How cute!

Thank you!

A friend of mine donated some used (but not worn out) men's shirts to me, so I could destroy them and turn them into something new!
My first thought was "Lab Coat" for my (almost 9 month old) son, Achilles.

I took some pictures with him in the lab coat, heavily distracted by his favorite book (Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! by Sandra Boynton)

Here's how it turned out:

AWESOME! So awesome, in fact, that I put that all in capitals to stress my point.
