Ludi sent me a lover's eye and in return she wanted one of the lil' bunnies in a bed I made for my kids and the cousins and neighbours (I made a lot of bunnies, ha). I had a cross border parcel go missing recently and it really stung so I sent this one across the border with my folks to mail it signature required over there. That tacked on a lot of time to the exchange which I felt kind of bad about but honestly, losing handmadery in the post is the WORST!
Anyhoo, here's the fabulous eye http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427405.0#axzz2ei0QtIjX
My story about it is on the second page. It is so special, Ludi asked me a dozen questions and requested lots of pictures then consulted me about which I liked most, so much work went into that eye! I love it.

And here's the bunny.

I wasn't so sure this exchange was energetically balanced so I ended up making extra blankies and even then I wasn't satisfied.

I used the rest of the scraps I had on hand for this wee owl. Seemed seasonal and it's angora and cashmere so it's touchably soft Smiley.

Shake a tail feather!


I also owed a bunny to one of the neighbour kids that missed out, he actually wanted a bear instead so here he is. Cashmere too Smiley.


All from scrap!

Ah, thanks guys Smiley. The owl is actually quite a bit bigger, maybe like the size of my hand. Won't fit in a tin, lol Cheesy.
It felt so good to get into my stash and craft something. We moved to a new city a couple months ago and it's been a trial and a half. My crafting stuff has no home here and I'm missing being able to rummage for a quick craft or pick up something that's mid-process. I have such a busy weekend with gobs of chores but getting that crafting stuff sorted out is a priority. No cutty and stitchy makes monkey go crazzzzzeeee, don't mind if I DO!!!!!

What a cute stocking stuffer idea! I am thinking that for little kids, you could also paint the inside of the tin to look like the animal's food cupboard for more pretend play...or cutting out the pictures from a magazine would be faster and easier. Thanks for sharing! I am going to show this to my daughter to see if she wants to try making one.
