I joined just the other day and I finally found a picture of something that I made and could share with you guys.
Below are a pair of 'rabbits' which I made. I got a kit when I was about seven or eight to make a plushie rabbit. I've never wanted to use the plushie fabric because I've only been able to handsew and I didn't want to ruin the kit. But I'd had it sat there for so long that I decided to use some fabric scraps to give it a go.
And so the blue rabbit on the right was made. I used the fabric from a thin denim-style dress (brilliant material) and the grey back of one of my brothers Dennis the Menace t-shirts. I named that one Frankenbunny because he didn't really look like a rabbit.
The second rabiit I named Jasmine (because the yellow thread I used was called Jasmine yellow). It was made out of a pajama t-shirt (also nice material), the white fabric was horrible, the needle would just punch holes in it which would tear out, but eventually I got there.
I used buttons for eyes and stuffed them with some plushie stuffing stuff.
And here they are:
I now have two more (in contrasting red and blue) and a Hobbit that I'm working on. Though I'm handsewing them at the moment I'm hoping to get my sewing machine set up soon.
I'd love to know what you think.
