Easter gifts for kids: Introducing the Boo-Boo Bunny (with sewing tutorial)

When I was a kid, my family had a “boo-boo bunny.” It was this little terry cloth pocket that you could put an ice cube in and hold onto your various kid boo-boos. Now, I had a wonderful childhood, but I don’t often remember many details like that from it. Ask anyone who knows me, I just have a horrible memory when it comes to that stuff. (Although, for some reason I can remember any song lyric that was ever on the radio in the 80′s and 90′s, and who sang it. Useless really.)

Next we are going to attach the two ends. On one side, fold the end into itself about a half inch. Then stuff the other side into that one about an inch or so. Sew it all in place. This is several thick layers, so if you don’t want to mess up the tension on your machine, you might wanna hand sew it, or your machine might do fine.

Finally, pinch the two sides together right behind the bunny head and pin at the top and bottom. You will have to hand sew this seam to make sure it ends up centered behind the face.

That’s it! It’s ready to hold an ice cube or two on a boo-boo. Now just wait anxiously for your child’s next minor injury!
