Bartholomew Bunny Softie Pattern
Bartholomew Bunny is usually the first project I have my students make when I teach a softie-making class. It's a great way to learn some basic softie techniques, and after you get this one under your belt you'll have all the skills you need to start making all kinds of softies. It's a workshop disguised as a pattern!
You'll also have a super cute, baby-safe, huggable stuffed bunny! Line your bunny's ears with satin for extra baby love. :-)

The finished bunny is 9 inches tall (16 inches if you count the floppy ears) and 6 1/2 inches wide across the bottom - the perfect size for snuggling.
Super easy! I've made this exact pattern with kids as young as 6. It's easy and fun and oh-so-satisfying. :-) Bartholomew Bunny is really fun to make out of outgrown clothes - and works just as well with stretchy fabrics like T-shirts.

You'll Need. . .
- 1/3 yard main fabric
- scraps of fabric for ear linings
- embroidery thread

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern.
For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.
You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.
For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
