Introducing the BunnyChildren (a wip tale)
It all started with a trip to the thrift store.. I found this.. and a bolt of ( yes, a whole bolt) of cream colored wool felt.
The pattern is unassuming but I just had a feeling that there might be more to it that meets the eye... Perhaps with some modifications?????
Soon I had two felt rabbits, naked and faceless. Something is odd about them. Not just that the photo is slightly out of focus.. They are not real rabbits at all..They have no Haunches..their limbs are all the same size.. They are Bunny Children. Child shaped body with a bunny head. They need clothing. I Rush to my scrap boxes.. Chaos insues...
After a massive mess.. I have done it. I "used what I had" (This entire mission accomplished with zero extra trips to the fabric store and most of the major elements are thrifted!) and made the Bunny Children.. Then I let them out to play in the yard..
Because it was a really nice afternoon and I needed to clean up the mess I made..
