So this time around I developed a pattern for a silly little character 😀 My best friend’s internet handle is sometimes Astrobunny, and I felt this sudden urge to make her a reality. I thought it also helped that the plush is very small and simple, helping add to my collection of patterns for beginners – which is always good, right? The bunny comes with a little Cosmokitty pal, because of course she needed a friend! So this little cutie is just a simple flat, pillow-style plush if you will. But the real charm of it comes in all the cute astronaut details on her suit. There are contrast ear, arm, and leg bands, and a wide array of buttons and switches for the chest panel. And the cherry on the sundae is the little jetpack in back.
The fun part is you can go as simple or complex as you want with all the applique. Sew it all in place or use heavy duty fusible web to just iron it on. Either way the rest of the body sews up quick. The whole body pattern just takes up one printer page. It’s a great handheld size that’s easy sew up quick and to keep around for company. So I just gave it 2/10 stars in difficulty. I hope you’ll give one or both a try!
