When my little man helped me open a box of fabrics from Birch Fabrics he immediately fell in love with the sweet little pink bunnies that are bounding all over Bunny Hop from Hidden Garden. He pretty much begs me to make him something from every bolt that comes into the shop so I passed it off and just what he says. The next morning he asked again if I would make him something with it and my daughter turned to him and said, no that is a girl fabric. Well people, that did it! I wanted him to know that if he loves a fabric, any fabric, that is his choice and he should not feel bad for it.
Yes, there are sweet little pink bunnies on this print. Yes, there are flowers on this print. Yes, there are butterflies on this print. Yes, I cut that fabric off the bolt in front of him and told him to go wash it and pick out a pattern! Yes! My amazing, happy, confident little man is wearing pink bunnies on a navy background with white flowers and butterflies and YES!!! He is as happy as could be!
We decided that a cardigan would be perfect for spring and perfect for this Bunny Hop knit. While most might pair this print with a rosy pink or turquoise for a more feminine look, I choose Art Gallery Fabrics Sahara Sun knit. I used Pattern for Pirates Cpt. Mack's Cardigan. This was a very fast and rewarding project. I even sped up the process by keeping my pockets and elbow patches raw. I know that my little man will be wearing this over and over again, proudly showing his classmates and teachers his 'sweet little bunnies'. Come celebrate with us and participate in the daily giveaway! There are many grate tour sponsors this year and today sponsors will make you smile! Be sure to follow along on all the stops and celebrate a boy being a boy wearing what makes him happy!
