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.Pattern pageshttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3766/11342221103_555c41f9db_h.jpghttp://farm8.staticflickr.com/7453/11342073395_d08046bb4e_h.jpghttp://farm4.staticflickr.com/3688/11342076545_79ca512d17_h.jpg
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?
