On the weekend, while sorting out some stuff in the garage to make space for more stuff, I came across the box containing my stash of bear making supplies from when I used to make bears. I haven't done much bear making in recent years but after opening up the box containing lovely mohair fabric & more, my fingers were itching to stitch so last night I had a go at making a vintage style rabbit while watching TV. Normally I would have used the machine but I sewed him by hand while watching Midsomer Murders...hope that doesn't affect him too much!
He is made from a 'matted' style mohair to give him an aged look with wool felt tummy & glass eyes. He wears a vintage ribbon & bell around his neck (or maybe it should be 'her' as it is pink?)
He/she needs a name now....any suggestions?
