Pattern Review - Bunny from Chunky Monkey & His Friends pattern from Create H.O.P.E. Designs

This is such a sweet, sweet plushie pattern!
 This adorable bunny is part of the pattern collection, Chunky Monkey & His Friends sold at Create H.O.P.E. Designs. For ONLY $5 you get Chunky Monkey and his friends Puppy, Kitty and of course, Bunny! What a deal! And the pattern is super easy to follow and a perfect beginner project by design!

You could use buttons, snaps or the like for eyes, but I chose to hand embroider the eyes on this sweet softie since I was doing the same for the nose and mouth. I simply followed the pattern suggestion for finding the center and then penciled the face on.
 I also added a little stitched heart. 
And of course, a little "cotton" tail...

I made another simple version too, without facial features.

This darling pattern is provided by the very talented 7 Layer Studio and is full of photos and super easy to follow, step-by-step instructions. It was originally designed for the older orphans of One Heart Bulgaria to learn to sew and is now also part of the collection at Create H.O.P.E. Designs. The sale of all patterns at Create H.O.P.E. Designs is purposed for the support of orphans and their communities worldwide. Very good stuff!!! Both the patterns and the purpose! Be sure to take a minute to check it out!

Pair this sweet bunny with some of these squishy soft (and unbreakable!) Charm Eggs by My Cotton Creations...
