Bright Bunny Project

Meet the cute and cuddly Bright Bunny Pirate who has a secret...

...his heart lights up when you feed him his favourite food...a carrot!

I designed this project for a workshop I taught at the Christchurch Craft 2.0 fair in June 2009.

We had three women and two girls participate, they learned to solder and assemble the bunnies each ending up with their own personality. It was good to have Lucy from Felt and Dave on hand to lend assistance as we under-estimated the time a bit!

It's turned out the project is an ideal introduction to incorporating electronics into craft. As an added bonus you can download the Creative Commons licensed Bright Bunny pattern.

The video above was recorded at the Christchurch Creative Space and edited in Blender.
