Stuffy Bunny came into creation today.
She has button eyes and pipe cleaners in her ears.
Bunny can move her limbs and can even raise her arms up to get a hug.
I sifted through my button stash for some eyes and buttons for the arms and legs.
Doing this always reminds me of being a little girl at my grandmother's house and looking through her button jar. I would spend hours sorting them and wondering where they came from.
This was the first stuffed animal I have made by sewing, and it was a really calming project. A lot of it was hand sewn and I got to see the bunny take shape as I was making it.
Only one flaw I am not happy with, there is some puckering around the nose. Boo!
But, some one I know doesn't seem to mind.
Some variations I thought of for this project would be to add some lavender or hops to the stuffing for a "Sleepy Bunny" and/or adding some embroidery to the fuzzy belly.
Believe it or not, we got MORE snow!
Then, today, the sun came out and it began to melt.
I can't wait to photograph the quilt that I finished today.
Until then... thanks for reading!
I always appreciate comments on the blog or through e-mail, they make my day!
