[FO Friday] Mim Mim the Bunny!

Hi everyone, hope you’ve had a good week! Today I’m sharing with you something that I was asked if I could make. I was given an image of a crocheted bunny, and the name of a kids show, and asked if I would be able to make one. I hadn’t heard of the character before, or the kids show, but using the powers of google and the image supplied, I put together this pattern and created this lovely fellow – meet Mim Mim!

How cute is he?! It took me about a week to do, as he is about 12 inches tall (a nice cuddly size, I would say!) and I had to figure out the pattern as I went along. I tried to match his features from the kids show to make him really recognisable. I had sewn the back of his goggles to his head so they stay attached, but left enough wiggle room so that the goggles can be pulled down over his eyes:

Ready for adventure!

You can see from the above picture the pink feet and paws, just like the cartoon. His tummy patch was quite fun to make, as it was a guess-as-you-go shape!

Once done, I shipped him off to his new home, where he is loved so much that another one has been requested for the little girl’s sister. Good job I wrote the pattern down! So I’m currently in the process of making a second one, and it’s coming along quicker than the first. This time I’m taking pictures of the process, to hopefully make a tutorial on how to make him!

Until next time~!
