I finished up my last handmade Christmas present last night - a stuffed bunny in pajamas for Oscar. I wanted to make him a bedtime companion like Little Bear's. Not that he has eyes for anyone but beloved Kanga, but maybe someday. So I set out to make him a bunny that looked like these cuties... here, here, here. And then I made him little pajamas in polka dot flannel fabric that coordinate with the flannel sock monkey fabric of Oscar's new Christmas pajamas.
I'll have to remember in the future, that the crunch of holiday deadlines is not the best time to be trying to design patterns. First of all, he's HUGE. I have to work on my scale! Then, he looked like a donkey in the first iteration. Still kinda does actually. After much tweaking I got him to where I'm satisfied enough. But I really wish I'd had to time to make another one. But that's Oscar's fate - playing with a bunch of prototypes!
I'm glad to be out of the craft room. Today we bake!
