Mary Wimberley’s Bonzo Bunny This Bunny Pattern can be made by Sewers with average Sewing skills preferably a background in making bears. The rabbit is intended as an adult collectible rather than a children’s toy. This 7 page pattern for Bonzo Bunny is for an 8” (20cm) standing jointed rabbit. The pattern is made for 8.5” x 11” paper and folded to fit into a plastic zip lock bag for your convenience. You will find never before published Mary’s Secret Garden techniques for creating eyelids, whiskers, leather noses, and my needle sculpting and airbrush techniques. The pattern includes a complete list of materials and a montage of photos for reference. There are two full pages of clearly marked pattern pieces with detailed instructions for cutting, trimming, marking and sewing the fur. The pattern pieces include dots for cotter pin or bolt insertion, openings for turning, seam allowance, nap arrows, eye placement and nose insertion dots, disc outlines (so you can increase of decrease pattern) and more. Additionally there are two pages of instructions for finishing the bunny including my special lop ear, my secret eyelid technique, my leather bunny nose technique, my unique way of inserting eyes, my needle sculpting technique, my special faux airbrushing technique, my whisker insertion technique and more! In the photos please notice that I have included another bunny named Grelf who is made of synthetic fur with alpaca cheeks. Bonzo is made of alpaca. I welcome questions so please write if you have any questions. If you want to sell your bunny, that is fine as long as you give me credit as the pattern maker but please do not share or sell the pattern. For example, I am offering Bubbles the Bunny, made from Mary Wimberley’s (of Mary’s Secret Garden) Bonzo Bunny pattern. Best of luck with your project! PS.
