Pattern Description:

Don't you remember the great story of the Velveteen Rabbit? Little boy loved his stuffed rabbit, loved it dearly.

So, here's my bunny, my rabbit, come to life to speed on through the world and become real, loved, and magically on his own. I purposely made one ear slightly off to the side, a sign of his approach of quietness, of his tenderness, and of his sympathy.
