Item details

Vintage inspired Bunny - pdf pattern to make a 1950 's vintage inspired bunny rabbit soft toy and apron.

- I created this unique sewing pattern using my Mother's original bunny rabbit purchased in a London corner shop in 1946. The original bunny is shown in the last image.

- For anyone who appreciates nostalgia and uniqueness and old childhood storybooks.

- The bunny or pattern is not found anywhere else on the internet as it is my own reproduction from my Mother's original.

- He stands approximately 14" high.


- Benjamin Bunny can be hand sewn or made by machine. I made him on a very old and very cherished 'Vickers' hand crank sewing machine. It is over 70 years old and in almost perfect working condition. There is something very comforting about using an old sewing machine... a precious moment imprinted with every stitch.

- I made the Bunny with a mixture of Donegal tweed, wool felt and suedette and for the stuffing, good old cotton wool. He is very rewarding to make and a treasure to love forever.

The PDF pattern consists of:
* Step-by-step PHOTOGRAPHIC instructions.
* Full scale pattern ready to print.

Fabric remnants, toy eyes (or embroider), embroidery or tapestry yarn for face, thread, scissors, sewing machine (or can be hand sewn).

~ Your PDF pattern will be INSTANTLY available after purchase, so you can download and start creating STRAIGHT AWAY!
