Barbie Baby Bunny Outfit from Balloon

Today's project is just silly and simply intended to make a child smile:@) I've been looking at the little Mattel Barbie babies that come in rubber animal outfits for a couple years now. There's a rabbit, dog and lamb. With Easter approaching, I thought it might be fun to see if we could make our own bunny outfit from balloons. Not intended to be a long term garment, just a little something to make for giggles. I used some balloons I already had in my stash, would have chosen pastel colors if I was buying balloons for the project. 

My inspiration:

✂What I did:
Using round balloon that's about 2" across at the widest point-
  1. Cut 1/2" small slit right below the neck of the balloon, estimate where the face would be.
  2. Cut two very small slits a little below the face and off to the sides a tad, so you can push the arms through.
  3. Dress baby in balloon, push the body through the face hole. Adjust the hole so it surrounds the face.
  4. Push both arms through the holes.
  5. Place baby in sitting position. You will see the feet poking the balloon. Make small slits and push feet through holes. 
  6. Adjust the outfit so it fits.
  7. Cut the neck of the balloon vertically. Tie into a knot. Trim the rolled part off at an angle creating ears.
  8. Optional: Add a dab of hot glue to help both ears stick up.
Bunny Ears Hat
Using two balloons that are about 1/2" wide and 4" long-
  1. Tie into knot leaving about 1/2" to the rolled ends.
  2. Choose the rolled part that will help the ears look like they are facing front, stretch ~wide~ and place on head like a hat.
  3. Cut the unused end off.
  4. Optional: Color center of each ear with Sharpie.

Make something just for fun and have a happy day🐰
