Finished projects

17 Apr 2007

This little boy is finally winging his way to Canberra. He is for a 3 year old boy and I hope he enjoys him. He is certainly very nice to cuddle.

And here is my Easter rabbit only a week or so late. He is made from an old baby blanket that I purposely felted to use for various projects. Ever since Vicki started her blanket projects so long ago I have been keeping my eye open for the perfect blanket. I ended up buying two baby blankets from a local thrift shop for $2 each.

The braid around his neck is from a petticoat that belonged to my cousin way back in the 60s and was given to my daughter for playing dress-ups. The petticoat has slowly disintegrated but I saved the braid, about 2 meters of it.

He is all handsewn and stuffed with pure new wool fleece, I embroidered his features and he has wonderful golden whiskers.

This is the pattern I used, I think it dates from the mid 60s. I made the dog some time ago and he is for sale in my Etsy shop. This little bunny is for sale too. If you are interested check him out in my shop.
