for my favorite "faux-niece" (one of my best friend's daughters who calls me AUNTIE LALA. i love it.) e turned 3 last month, and i got this bunny to her in the timely manner of one month late. i've had a lot going on.
this bunny is the Well-Dressed Bunny - i liked the simplicity of it, as well as the fact that 3 is a good age to dress and undress things. non-human things i mean.
miss e also loves fairies so i fashioned a set of fairy wings (this took a few tries and some experimental wire until i just decided to make stuffed wings).
i used lion's brand fisherman's wool (that skein just doesn't quit) and made no modifications. the whole bunny has a lopsidedness which, fortunately, i think is cute, but was unintentional and a result of poor stitching on my part. she doesn't sit on her bottom very well either! stitching the mouth was hard for me, apparently because i overdid it (as usual). when i got to the eyes, i did about 3-4 quick stitches, and they were just right. will ever remember to go easy?
if there is a soul in the world who cares to know the pattern i concocted for the wings, i will post it, but i figured the chances were slim that there is a need for them!
tomorrow is my first day off in a couple weeks, and hopefully the eve of my return... how dramatic...
addendum: did i never post e's gift from her 2nd birthday last year? that is weird because i was happy with it and i usually think WAY too much about posting things. well, here is manti, in cascade 220 superwash, the collared verstion, with blue buttons:
(the third picture i mostly just posted because of those eyes!)
