Bo is a sweet, gentle rabbit with a dimensional nose and quilted ears. Simple embroidered and appliquéd features give Bo his gentle look. His tail is positioned just right so Bo can sit all by himself.
Use wool suiting, felt, flannel, corduroy, cotton, linen, or any soft fabric to construct the body and choose a contrasting cotton for the inner ears and nose. Bo has whimsically placed ears, with one parallel and one perpendicular, so you know he is a a great listener.
Bo’s quick to sew messenger bag is perfect for love notes. With or without the messenger bag, Bo is the perfect companion.
Bo the Bunny is 23" from his toes to the top of his head.
This pattern includes complete instructions, photo figures, and full size templates. This pattern is suitable for very confident beginners.
