A little Woodland bunny!!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Tonight, I made a woodland bunny for my oldest son.
You ask yourself...Why would she make a stuffed animal for her 15 year old son?
Well, surprisingly enough, he asked me to make it for his girlfriend for Christmas.
I was shocked.
I asked him if he was sure he wanted me to make her something.

He said: "I like the stuff you make better than what I could buy in the store.
My girlfriend will like this better. She likes that kind of stuff."

Well, I have only made one other stuffed animal before.
It was the daschund for my daughter a couple Christmas' ago.

So, I went though my books and magazines and we agreed on this pattern.
The woodland bunny by Sandy Henderson.

The pattern is in her book, "Sewing Bits & Pieces".
This is the first pattern I use out of this book.
It was very easy to follow the instructions.
A well written pattern.

Well, I'm kind of nervous to find out if his girlfriend is going to like it.

What do you think?

I hope you all have a good week.

I have to work almost 70 hours between Monday and Sunday.
I'm not looking forward to it.

I think it is wonderful! And to think your son requested something made with love from you - to pass on to a "love" - that's terrific.

NO doubt about it Ariane. She will love it...having your son ask you to make it for a GF, I think that is an honest testimonial right there...
I will be saying a prayer for you this week...70 hours is a lot of hours hon.

That is just great! It says a lot about your son and your relationship, too. Wonderful! I'm sure she'll LOVE it!

This is absolutely gorgeous! It's nice that your son recognises quality!

She's gonna LOVE it Ariane! I bet your son will be proud to give that bunny to his girlfriend. It's just so sweet, I love all the fabric choices! Super job!

It's very cute and you have a good son there. Be proud of him and yourself for raising such a smart kid!

That's so sweet Ariane. Sorry you have to work soooo many hours.

I know your son's girlfriend will love the toy bunny.

Hi Ariane, If your son's gf doesn't like it, she's crazy! It looks fantastic. And take care of yourself when you can. Hopefully you can have some time off at Christmas to spend relaxing!

I think the bunny has personality! Good job and very well made. I agree, it is a compliment for your son to ask you to make something for his girlfriend! She will love it. Just found your blog and will try to come back!

I think he is just adorable Ariane! You've done a superb job of making him and if this is the sort of thing his girlfriend likes then she's definitely a keeper!
