here comes peter woolentail, hoppin' down the bunny trail
hippity hoppity easter's on its way.
i quickly stitched up this most adorable little woolen bunny.... seriously, this bunny is stinkin' cute. originally i was looking for a more three dimensional pattern, but once i stuffed this pattern by betz white, i think it came out perfect. and so very quick. i used a felted thrift store wool sweater, scraps of hand-dyed hemp/organic cotton jersey for the inside ears, and buttons for the eyes. for the tail i made a circle, stitched a running stitch for gathering the circle into a ball shape, leaving a hole for stuffing a little bit of fill. i stuffed the body pretty stiff to make it more three dimensional.
yeah, this was supposed to be an easter basket gift, but when it turned out so cute i couldn't help but share it a bit early. pat suggested i make a pattern for a squirrel and other random animals, so perhaps a different animal will end up in the baskets :)
