With this bunny doll pattern you can create a perfect companion for any adventure. Especially for a sporty one. If you make the ball orange, it can be basketball. Or stick with the white and it can be volleyball, handball, even baseball or golf ball. She can easily be undressed and re-outfitted with dress-up kits available separately in other Blog posts.
I haven't used anything that can be hazardous for small babies so if you are following my instruction you will make a 100% safe toy.
Her pattern is an easy one, suitable for beginners. I tried to reduce the sewing by making the head and the body to be a single piece. And I will show you a great method to prevent the head from tilting backwards. I call it neck stiffener.

DMC perle (size 8) : black ( embroidering the eyes)
¨ This will be a tube-like shape, that needs to be inserted into the neck after the head is filled and most of the body part is already done. Do it as the leg, but it is just 14 Round "tall".
¨ Must be filled very firmly- seeing the filling is not an issue at this point, it is a must :) - if it is done as written it will prevent the head from tilting backwards.
¨ Insert it into the neck after Row 35 - - approximately half of it goes into the head and half of it stays in the body

It will be a simple sphere, and it's detail will determine what kind of ball it is. I used textile pen to add the football/soccer ball details.
