remembrance bunnies by Petra Ubbels

11.  Remembrance Bunnies – When my father-in-law died my kids were very sad (obviously). Then my son said:”Now I can’t stroke grandpa’s nice soft sweater anymore.” That gave me the idea to turn the sweater into a stuffed animal as a remembrance to grandpa. Whenever my son is sad he takes his bunnie which cheers him up again. I made one for my son and one for my daughter in opposite colors.~ Petra Ubbels – Peet Made It
