the return of the Big Footed Bunny!

look at those big feet!

Guess who is back in the shop after a long (2 year?!) hiatus… Big Footed Bunny! We didn't have more printed but Tim converted her into handy dandy PDF. The pattern is for a 10" floppy eared, big footed woolen/felt/flannel bunny who can be dressed in either criss-cross jumper or jaunty short pants. I love this size, very huggable and kids LOVE it but I thought it'd be fun to try out a smaller version too.

I printed the PDF at 50% and cut it out of wool felt and sewed it together by hand. Turned out so wee and cute! Perfect for a little basket.

regular and half sized.

Since we're overrun with bunnies I thought I'd do a little giveaway with this one. If you need more bunny in your life (and live in the US) leave a comment and I'll spin the random-number-generator tomorrow.

congratulations Kenda!


I forgot how much I love this bunny. It's one of my favorite flickr groups to look through. So many cuties in there! And man, have I made a lot of these bunnies myself over the years. Even makes a cute kitty!

    I have a sign on my front door that says “believe in the bunny”. And, I do. Thanks for the give-away chance.

  3. Julie says:

    I know a little girl who would love a bunny. I just know it would be very well looked after and kept most warm under soft bunny blankets x

    I need more bunny in my life. Well, actually, somebunny else in my life, namely my three year old son, needs some more bunny is his life.

    I am loving working through projects in wee wonderfuls, but no time to make something new before filling the easter basket. This little bunny would be greatly loved by my 3 yo.

  6. montague says:

    i made one a few years ago for my nephew, but now that i have a girl of my own i never seem to find the time to make one for her!

  7. skinimini says:

    She is so lovely. My daughter would love it. Her little brother might get jealous, but he could probably be appeased with a Spiderman mask! πŸ™‚

  8. allie h. says:

    i would so give her a home! and a carrot to boot! πŸ˜‰

  9. Brooke says:

    We have a big-footed bunny I made from the old pattern and it still is beloved — by both me and the kids! We’d give a very cuddly home to the tiny one!

    Great idea shrinking the pattern! She is so sweet! I shrunk the Ellie pattern in your book by 50% and it turned out great.

  12. Mary M says:

    Oh my! I was just looking at that pattern. I am going to try to make one for my new baby for Easter. We’ll see if I can! But, man, I hope I win!

  13. megan says:

    so cute. I just made a bunch of clothes for my daughter’s bunny, but this bunny is sooooo cute. Maybe she needs another bunny!

  14. deb says:

    Oh my! Would I be the happiest bunny in the patch if I was selected by the random selector! SOOO cute!

  15. Elizabeth says:

    I’ve always admired your wee creatures and this bunny is beyond adorable. I’ve been suffering through hyperemesis and since tomorrow is my 30th (gasp) birthday it sure would cheer me up to win her. I’d get in many cuddles my of own before handing her down to my daughter who will of course welcome the bunny into her stuffies family. Where giggles and imaginative play time will ensue πŸ™‚

  16. Kathleen says:

    Any time I am sewing something non-Wee Wonderfuls related my kids get mad. I’ve given away so many things as gifts, but now I have some partially finished sleepover pals and a partially finished Margot lying around that are supposed to be for them.

  17. Rose McC. says:

    Bunny love here! This would be wonderful in my daughter’s Easter basket – she is a stuffed animal lover!

    Love it! I love the big footed bunnies! He would love to come to our home in NY!! πŸ™‚

    My two-year old loves the bun-bun. Thanks for the chance to give her a home. She’s a beauty!

  20. Jennifer says:

    I think my E would love to add one to her menagere of babies and critters to her crib. She has them lined up down the sides so when she awakens in the morning she can play with them, until she decides to scream, “MOMMMMIIIIIEEE,” or attempt to climb out.

  21. Robin says:

    Awww – how cute are those? They’d be adorable in a big/little (big sister/brother and little sister/brother) pair!

  22. Lisbeth says:

    Your little big footed bunny is absolutely precious. I would love to give her a new home!
