Me: Georgia! Your new bunny is finished. YAAAYYY ….
This is true … and I know this (I happen to prefer bunnies) so … if you happen to like my bunny, leave a comment. I’ll randomly pick a winner soon and ship this poor little unwanted bunny to YOU!
Bunny is about 18″ long and a mixture of 100% wool / cashmere / lambs wool sweaters that I felted and chopped up. She is stuffed with some kind of Eco-filling (could find wool). She’s a bit odd in the dimensions department –> I didn’t have a pattern and just made her up.
I actually bought a sewing machine. The thought of sewing up the bunny by hand, was just too much for me. A little bit of felt food is one thing, but the whole bunny … YUCK! It was my first time EVER using a sewing machine, just getting it threaded was a challenge … then sewing through the 1/8″ felt was something else. Regardless, she is done! I ripped out all the stitches on the arms and legs and re-sewed them with the machine. The head is all hand-sewn (MESSY); I didn’t think I’d make the turns on the ears using the machine. Remember your first driving lesson? Well I kind of sew a lot like that … lots of jerking, stalling and swerving.
Psst –> the photos SUCK! Winter darkness is upon us, and along with it, my ability and drive to take photos has disappeared. Expect 6 months of BLUR!
