This striped baby softie is from the “Mooshy Belly Bunny” pattern by Chez Beeper Baby.  I love Holly’s blog and free projects–she’s got taste!  And this project is a refashion too.  Talk about frugal!  Holly used old T-shirts for her bunny; I used a thrifted Old Navy shirt (that was a bit heavier than a T-shirt) and some scraps of quilting fabric.

Upcycling can be chic, ya know. :)

Although… I fancy my bunny has just broken out of jail.

Silly bunny.  The fate that awaits him may be far worse than any prison sentence for stealing carrots.  Jail-Break Bunny is about to become Chewed-On-Spit-Up-On-Washed-500-Times Bunny. :)

    He may look like a jailbird but baby will sure be enamored with him! LOVE it!

    Super cute! And thank you for posting the link to this project. I had it on my last computer, but my bookmarks never got transferred before it completely died. I’m happy to have been reminded that this was on my to-make list.

    OH MY! I love that bunny of yours. The fabrics are perfect and the notion he is a jailbreak bunny is too wonderful. I hope you will share photos in my Beeper Bebe project Flickr group–right here:

    Hi!
    I´m Katja, I´m German and living in Munic (Bavaria) and Terracina (Italy) I´m a professional writer and the owner of an UPCYCLING-site, called http://www.wunderwerke.info (wunderwerke in English is “marvels”)
    Apart from other upcycling projects at the moment we are working on a book. The title will be something like: wunderwerke (marvels) UPCYCLING - the best ideas for beginners, advanced and professionals.
    Since I fell deeply in love with your beautiful Bunny I wanted to ask you if you would like to participate in our book with a little tutorial and some making-of-pictures.
    Please be so kind and let me know what you think about this idea.
    If there are any questions - do not hesitate to contact me.
    Thank you very much.
