I’ve spent the last few days working on this little fellow.
In hindsight I should have put the ears closer together…
I’m pretty sure the recipient doesn’t read my blog so I should be safe posting it here. I can’t decide if he’s really cute or if I’m going to be the aunty that gives the weird gift…
If you’d like to make your own you can find the free pattern here. It doesn’t use much yarn. The one modification to the pattern I made was to line the body of the rabbit with fabric before sewing it together.
Gorgeous Girl has been helping me make Christmas cards. She chose the two background papers for this one. I think it works in a weird kind of way, and the summery island feel to the paper is entirely appropriate to an antipodean Christmas.
The stamp is from a Stampin’ Up set that was a gift from my good friend Kerin a few years ago.
It comes with ornaments too.
And song lyrics.
I probably should have torn the centre paper instead of cutting it. I’m not sure it works in it’s current form.
I think I’ll do the rest of the cards like this.
I coloured this one. Gorgeous Girl has been colouring some of the others, but they went to her teachers before I got a photo of them.
Nice and simple and quick to do.
My current crafting goal is to get my beaded yarn plied and off the spinning wheel before we head to Australia. I’d also like to get some more done on Gorgeous Girl’s new quilt and make her another pillow case for Christmas before we head off…Not sure if I’ll get all that done.
