Love the tiny stitched skull and the White Rabbit's accessories!
I was originally planning to make Peter Rabbit before suddenly abandoning that idea for a Richard Scarry worm. (In fact I got Peter cut out and started sewing - I really ought to finish him anyway.) I'd thought briefly about Ook Pik, who I remember from that era, but I didn't have any suitable fur. Then I happened to pass through a fabric store that had perfect
Ook Pik fur on sale. So I bought a small piece, just in case. But they didn't have eyes, and I certainly didn't have the right kind in my stash. Then a few days later I opened the "EYES" tin to see if I had suitable worm eyes, and there they were - the exact
eyes* from the storybook Ook Pik. So I gave up and made him instead.
* The eyes, by the way, had been courtesy of Suerreal
, who was so horrified when I complained I couldn't find my stash of eyes that she sent me an assortment to re-stock with!
