Hey there,
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.

The little creamy one reminds me of the velveteen rabbit!

I think that the pattern is vaguely based on the velveteen rabbit actually. When you see they way they're supposed to look when they're made out of the proper material... mine ended up kind of lumpy.

The second one is much better, I learned from my mistakes with the first one and so that's why the yellow rabbits ears hang down but the blue ones sort of helicopter out!

Thanks for all the replies.

It makes me want to start sewing right now. But I can't because all my sewing stuff is in Glasgow (where I'm not)...

So instead I'm checking out all the other amazingly cute and well-made things on the board (which isn't really helping any because it's just giving me more ideas).
