Thanks for the nice comments on my last post! And welcome to new followers!
Here is my second February make... a gift for my baby nephew. Another homemade gift for the poor boy!!
What is it...? A bowling pin with arms?!
It's a rabbit!! But where's his face?!
Here it is!
The knitting part of this all went rather smoothly... but sewing the fabric to the ears and feet I found a bit more tricky. I sewed them right-sides together on the machine, then had to try to turn them the right way round through a tiny gap - very fiddly! (Admittedly, I could have just left a bigger gap but then the hand-sewing of the fabric to the knitting was tricky too, and sewing them to the body). By the time that was all done, I'd had enough - but there was only the face to embroider... surely that wouldn't take long...... hhhmmmmnnnn!!!!!
I just couldn't get it right - I kept embroidering different faces on, and having to unpick them! This was the 5th face - 2 days after finishing the rest of the rabbit! I had to keep 'sleeping on it' and approaching it again the next day! I'm finally pleased with this one! I think I can safely say this is not going to be a project that I will ever repeat!!!
