bunny rabbit stuffed animals for the young and young at heart

I started sewing in college, and that's when 'dear sweet darlings' was born. It began with rag dolls, but I found comfort with bunny rabbits.

I've always had 'Bun-bun,' a bunny plush from my childhood, and I want to share the experience with the world; a constant companion for adventures, tea parties, bedtime, or just hanging out.

Truthfully, when It comes to the live animals I'm allergic to rabbits (and I'm more of a cat person!) But the imagery of rabbits is my favorite. I take inspiration from traditional and modern bunny literature figures such as the 'Velveteen Rabbit', 'Max and Ruby', and Beatrix Potter's rabbits, as well as vintage stuffed toys.
