Bunny toys and a bunny bed
Our friend, Becky, from Triangle Rabbits, hosted a bunny toy-making workshop. Becky makes lots of very nice, and creative bunny toys. She has an Etsy shop called Bunderland, Bunny Toy Emporium. 10% of her sales go to benefit Triangle Rabbits, which is a local rabbit education and rescue group that is part of the House Rabbit Society. Handmade bunny toys and accessories are also available at the group’s events, like the upcoming BunFest. Information on events is available on their website.
Becky and I ended up trading toys. She picked up an IKEA doll bed for me when she was at the store, and she adopted a Hug Me Bunny for her rabbit’s birthday. Below is a photo she took of Samantha with her pink birthday bunny, and another of her cuddling with her bunny.
My Hug Me Bunnies are in my toy shop, hugmeslug.com. I am busy trying to restock my creatures, and so, if anyone is looking for a Hug Me Bunny, feel free to ask me. I have lots of partly-done toys and many colors of fleece.
I have been enjoying friends’ super adorable photos of their bunnies resting on their doll beds. Becky even has one with a bunny-themed custom-made mattress for Samantha, with a pink bunny cotton print fabric on one side, and fleece on the other, shown below.
I may have to make one of those for Oliver. This bunny fabric is made by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. It was designed by Ann Kelle, and is part of her Urban Zoologie line. It comes in “Pink” (shown), “Blush”, and also in a multi-color range, called “Spring”. You can find it online by searching for “Urban Zoologie Bunnies“.
Oliver and Bertie helped me assemble the bed. The cats were jealous. It was easy to put together. When we were done, I excitedly waited for Oliver to use it. And he did. Only instead of hopping on top of it, he thought it was fun to hop under it! Haha.
