There are officially 40 days until Easter, and I’m really hoping my health will hold out so I can finish this adorable project in time!
I wanted to find an easy way to convert our Mini Bunny Family pattern into the Peter Rabbit family. There are a lot of characters to consider, so I wanted to find a way to represent them with a simple piece of clothing. I designed these miniature hooded capes specifically for Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. They are pretty quick to sew up and I love the option of picking out an adorable mini print for the lining. (not to mention picking out ribbon for the ties! I love a good excused to use cute ribbon!)
While the original idea came for the Peter Rabbit project, I wanted to make sure this pattern could be used in lots of ways. The pattern includes a short and long version. You can add arm holes or not. There are pieces for the big (Adult) sizes and little (kid) sizes of our Animal families.
I had so much fun making up a few versions of these for our Elf Family to use during the holidays, and I feel like I will be pulling it out again and again for lots more projects.
You can find the pattern over on our Etsy shop. I’ve also just posted a video tutorial on our YouTube channel, so you can feel confident making up one of these, even as a beginner seamstress.
