yipes! are they aiming for us?
This is a fun present idea made from two rather famous online freebie patterns.
It was great, not too hard, didn't take long, (In fact- choosing the fabrics was the hardest part!)
and such a great handmade holiday present!
The Wee Bunny (x3 or x10, if you are feeling really crafty today!)
and The Purl Bee-ch Ball.
The modifications were minimal.
For the ball, no modification. I just made the 7 inch ball... It seems quite a nice size.
I multiplied the rabbits (which they were predisposed to do anyhow)
I did put beans in the bunnies bottoms to properly weight them.
I also changed their orientation ( I basically turned the finished rabbit around)
and I changed the facial designs, adding the eye buttons, for a look of mild alarm.
But really this is a great way to use up stash and make a great wintery sport toy for the kids (mine was made for my littlest niece) or any childish grown up that you love. Frankly, I am tempted to make a set for us here, at Chez Betty... But, I think the pup would love them all to bits.
I am still working on my Kreativ Blogger post... Amazing how time flies this time of year, what with the housekeeping, gift crafting and assorted festivities.., My bloglife just hits that back burner !
I am going to have a few great ideas to share, including the gifts my 13 year old son is crafting for his lucky recipients.
