Well, that took forever. I have a million other projects going.

The pattern I drafted up was off anyway. I ended up with a somewhat rotund sitting bunny, as opposed to a hanging bunny.

Draft 2 - headless, rotund, sitting bunny here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rustyrothwurt/14144808567

New pattern (3 pages):

As I move onto draft 3 of the bunny, I'll figure the nail thing out. I may end up poking wire straight through the final product.

Oh man... Your idea of being able to take the nail out blew my mind. I now have another 20 ideas like lining the hole with red felt, or making it so it can be mounted on a wall, or perhaps taking this to a new level and inserting a proximity sensor so that it can say things to those walking by. Weird things can only be inspired by a JTHM plush.

Good idea with the polymer. I do have some... We shall see how this goes.

Thanks for replying!

Trying to make Nail Bunny from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac

I'm new to making stuffed animals and tend to learn everything the hard way (although I'm sure reading a best practices for plush is in my near future). So, I just tried to start sewing a nail bunny and am having some troubles. I have looked up a lot of patterns for bunnies to best figure out:
1) the best pattern, and
2) the correct order of putting this together.

I have gone through two drafts, but I guess I'm not quite sure how to achieve the final bunny shape I am looking for:  http://th00.deviantart.net/images/300W/large/indyart/indymisc/JTHM_NailBunny.jpg

This is the most successful version I've made: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5500/11192175655_87a1ceb5cc_c.jpg

Forgive the face. I decided to paint a face on "real quick" and it backfired as the bunny stuck his face right into his paw and smeared it.

Problems Opportunities for Improvement
I'd like to add the nail, but I'm not sure the best method of anchoring a (maybe) wire-framed object into a plush animal. Seems dangerous. I would like to make the ears stand up, too, but haven't got there yet.
Secondly, I haven't yet been able to figure out a good shape to make the arms lay down. Thoughts?
