Baby Binky Bunny for Mimi

This is what I spent my weekend doing. Made this sickeningly adorable baby bunny and its even sicker patchwork binky. It was for Mimi. This is Mimi. Also adorable--about as adorable as the bunny and its sick binky. It was her 2nd birthday so I fixed her up (along with a little linen sack of wooden carrots, cukes, bell peppers and other assorted veggies from Haba--a bunny has to eat, you know). The pattern is from mmmcrafts (her shop here, where you can find the pattern). I saw it earlier this week and it really was instant love and there was no question or other option--I.had.to. make.it. The patchwork binky is really what put me over the edge--even though it is all in the hands of wee Mimi now, I still cannot stop thinking about the patchwork binky and how I want to design some of my own for use with some of my own plush designs. It was so freakin simple to make and it makes me feel all giddy just to look at it--weird, I know, but still. And, I plan to make one more of these Baby Binky Bunnies because this will be my next Toy Society drop--for April. But before that, I do have some original Beeper Bebe plushies I plan to make and get into the shop--a new doll design is in the works, as well as a wee chicken....

Your Baby Binky is so adorable! Isn't mmmcrafts just so good?! Yours really reminds me of chocolate easter bunnies :-) Speaking of bunnies, got yours in the mail today and I adore her! Soooooo cute! Thanks so much!

Thanks, Jhoanna. I am glad you like the little bunny. I see you have been making some bunnies of your own (which I love, of course). So many bunnies, so little time...

Oh oh oh! love chocolate Baby Binky Bun! thanks so much for this wonderful review. i LOVE that a BBB will be a Toy Society drop. I dig your fabric choices for the binky. Patchwork is strangely satisfying isn't it? Now I understand what all these quilting crazies go on about. (and thanks to you to Jhoanna, you sweetie)

WOW! What a great pattern, and you have done an amazing job of it. I would have been sad to see it go. I will be keep popping back in the hope of seeing more! :)

Thanks, Christina. I feel really flattered by all of these kind comments about the bunny--when I think it is Larissa who deserves all the credit for such a fantastic design. It really is an adorable pattern and I think it would be hard to make it NOT be cute.

And Larissa? Patchwork is strangely satisfying and I really had never done it before somehow--and I feel indebted to you for inadvertently introducing it to me...because somehow I think it is going to continue to turn up in my work now...it is SO good to be able to share this kind of random dialoge about plushies and patchwork and whatever else with other people--because my neighbors and day-job coworkers would just glaze over if I even attempted this sort of commentary with them...
