Today I have been finishing off this red rabbit softie, the weather has been horrible with severe winds and rain on and off all day, so a good excuse to sit down and do a bit of crafting.
(I always forget how windy Spring is, it surprises me every year!)
This poor softie has been sitting in a pile of pieces for a couple of years,
so it was high time I got him Finished Off!
I really need to work on my embroidery skills, a bit rough I think!
I made this using the basic pattern from my kitty cat, with a modification to ears to make them more rabbity. I had forgotten how much I like making toys, they are fun to make and I am glad I have another finished project to tick off my list.
.......here he is sitting with his softie mates, cat and pig, nice cheery peeps!
I have used Heirloom Colorworks , Heirloom Babywool 8ply and Loyal DK for these toys, they have such lovely vibrant colours to choose from, and make very soft, cosy toys.
(As well as the blanket behind them!)
What have you been up to today?
Has it been windy where you are?
I think we have more wind coming our way tomorrow here in Melbourne, so hang onto your hats!
