Little Bunny Boo Boo

When I was a little girl -- back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the term "politically incorrect" hadn't been invented -- we used to sing a song in elementary school. It started like this...

Little Bunny Foo Foo went hoping through the forest, 
Picking up the field mice and bopping them on the head...

I'm fairly certain that song isn't sung in grade schools anymore. There's probably a "Preservation of Rodents Society" that would be all over them if they did. Anyway, as I was making the little Easter Bunnies for my grandbabies, that song kept running through my mind. As a result I'm calling this bunny pattern "Little Bunny Boo Boo."  It's a play on words. The "Boo Boo" refers to the fact that this pattern can be made into a rice-filled cooling or heating pad to soothe a child's skinned knee or tummy ache -- just like my Chick-sicles and Love Birds.


I mentioned yesterday that there are multiple purposes for this bunny. Another application is it could be used as a "tooth pillow."  Before the child goes to bed her "lost" tooth is placed in the front pocket of the bunny for safe keeping. During the night the tooth fairy pays a visit and exchanges the tooth for some cold hard cash. I think the rather significant looking choppers on this bunny lends itself to being a used in that way too.


The last purpose is to use the pattern as an Easter gift. Later it could be used for one of the other purposes, but for Easter you could hide treasures in the little pocket,  like jelly beans or {hmmm, let's say} a vegetable...


The pattern and instruction for "Little Bunny Boo Boo" can now be found in my Etsy shop and can be purchased for the reasonable price of $5.

Linda said...

I know the song too, I never liked it because one animal was hurting another one; and now I am sure it would promote "bullying" and you are right - probably not sung any more in schools. Love the bunny.

We still bob the field mice on the head! Living in a rural area with lots of farming around, mice are considered pests and 'bopping' them on the head is the norm.

Thank you again for your generousity.

Oh my gosh...you TOTALLY made me laugh with the bunny song. I sooooo remember it. Interestingly enough, I never thought it as mean or violent. Hmmm. (And thank you-- or not-- for planting the song in my head for the balance of the day.) ;)

Anyway....cute, cute bunny!! You are sooooo incredibly talented.

Sara said...

I grew up watching my mother sew and I tried to learn but growing up with 4 brothers I was more interested in playing in the dirt! But now that I am a mother to 3 and soon to be 4 I am trying to learn to sew and do some of these things for my kids. I LOVE your "chick-sicle" and Owl Rice heating pad but this I just have to have cause my mom use to always sing this to me when I was growing up. I would love a copy of the pattern.

If this pattern is still available I would love to have one. Cool packs are a staple at my home. From sore muscles to headaches to sinus pain. I think this little guy would make us feel better even without the cool compress.
