Bunny blanket & peepee teepees
For my first nephew!! :)
I took these pictures when it was getting dark and I thought there wouldn’t be enough light, but I love how the exposure worked out!
The pattern is Wee Ones by Susan B. Anderson, from the Craftsy class with the same name. I wasn’t sure at first if I wanted to make this bunny, because I didn’t like the face Susan gave it and couldn’t come up with anything better, but Ravelry is great for this, because it enables you to look at other people’s ideas for a specific pattern. I quickly found TheCraftyPetite’s bunny face and was inspired.
About the embroidered B; ideally it would have been in the exact middle of the corner, but I’m still trying to figure everything out.
The fabric underneath the bunny blanket is a store-bought swaddle bag from Blankets & Beyond.
Oops I did it again... I’m really not sure how to prevent that if you’re embroidering something substantial.
I also included 3 cute little hats in the package, as worn by the bunch in this picture. That’s what they look like, but they’re far less innocent, haha. They’re actually peepee teepees or wee wee wigwams, or whatever you’d like to call them. They protect parents from baby boys’ golden showers during diaper changes, haha. Giraffe was prepared to demonstrate the purpose in an X-rated photoshoot ;). I followed this easy tutorial and quickly whipped up 3 of them. Fun little joke gift for new parents.
Knowing that peepee teepees exist, brightens your day, doesn’t it? :)
