On the way to Plymouth Ferry Port I thought I'd treat myself to a magazine, not having bought one for about a year. I bought Mollie Makes as there were a few projects that I thought I would make, including this Geometric Travel Case.....but in the small print it says that this pattern is actually in "Gathered by Mollie Makes", very disappointed, there were a few other pages like this too....sometimes I think there are 50 good pages, extended into a 100 page magazine.....anyway rant over and onto the wrabbit.
Being away in Libby, the camper van, I had to hand sew everything, but first I had to find some fabric as I wasn't wiling to sacrifice any of our clothes....we've not brought that many with us. In Contenente, the local supermarket, I found the perfect napkin as it had a coordinating edge to it.
So after some fiddley stitching, as the fabric frayed lots, I had all the parts, but I needed some stuffing. I managed to find a small fabric shop by the market in Silves, but they only sold stuffing in bales big enough for two pillows. After much gesturing the old lady thought I wanted a small amount for ear ache and suggested the chemist.....ahhhha....I could use cotton wool which comes in small packets....not ideal, but as this rabbit will never be washed then it doesn't matter too much. I stuffed the arms and legs before tacking them to the body piece, I think this works better than slip stitching them closed as the pattern required.
I even added the tag that was on the napkin. I didn't have any contrasting felt for the tummy, so I did a bit of chain stitch and some lazy daisies. I think she turned out quite cute, especially her lopsided ears!
The last of the mini eggs!
.....and as she was a make from a magazine, I'm linking up with Ange's Monthly Book Challenge......just in time!!
