i am a bunny. my name is bonzo.

as i mentioned previously, the bonz is down with story time.
one of his all time favorites has always been "i am a bunny" which is illustrated by my all time favorite, richard scarry, in 1963.

nicholas the bunny is break-your-heart cute:

lately the bonz waves to him on this page and says "hiiiiii!"

Photobucket
just. dear.

bonz thinks the raccoons are kitties so he points to them and says "meee-owww!"

Photobucket
see what i mean about the cuteness?
it's insane, really.

okay - you get the picture.
so, of course bonzo was going to have to be nicholas for halloween.

enter: etsy.
i found a vintage simplicity pattern from 1965 that just happened to be in bonzo's size - perfect!

next i put in a call to choo choo's mom who's an incredible seamstress (and mother-in-law) to see if she'd help me out in the sewing department since i'm a little rusty...
but i would top off the overalls with a white pick-stitch and big buttons!

then it was back to etsy to find the perfect bunny ears.
i really wanted to make something myself then i got a grip and realized that, while i love to knit, a bunny shaped deadline wasn't the best idea since i haven't yet branched out beyond square and rectangle shapes.
maybe i'd just stick with making the pom pom tail!

and nicholas came to life:
