This morning DS (very nearly 2), looked at me with his head on one side and said "Rabbit clothes?" I stupidly said Rabbit doesn't have clothes, does she need some? "Yes". Right ho. A whole day of trawling the Internet has revealed nothing, nada, zip. Nobody on the net has any to sell or any patterns or tutorials for Jellycat toy clothes. This seems stupid to me as every kid in the world has one of these toys don't they? Anyway I digress.
I decided to try and make some; these bunnies are a very odd shape. Huge heads, no necks or shoulders and stupidly big paws! After 2 hours of drawing, cutting and sewing I have one sleeve (my first ever sleeve though!) set into a front and a back. And it didn't fit! Back to the drawing board tomorrow.
Anyone got any bright ideas for a top that will fit over a head 3 times bigger than a body without falling off?
Make a tabard style pinafore with velcro on one shoulder, so it fits round the neck but doesn't have to go over the head. Ties to tie front to back under each arm. Make it pretty and frilly, like a 1970's Laura Ashley number.
Could you make clothes with an open back that velcros up? DD had a Jellycat doll with a huge head and the clothes that came with it were like that. Just think of a shirt that fastens at the back with velcro and that's basically what they were like. HTH
we get our tiny bunny's clothes from the barbie outfits. she fits some perfectly but some are too tight. with the new barbies out, get the ones that are curvy to fit the bunny! for medium big size, we just use baby doll clothes which you can find about anywhere.
