A sewing experiment in toy making...

Bobbie wanted a soft toy for a 2 month old grandchild of a friend. I had some cute baby fabric scraps from a yard sale and thought why not?! I freehand drew a shape on the back of the fabric and cut it out and then sewed around it with my machine. (Hint never sew when you have a foot cramp.)Is it a bear?

Or is it a bunny?


I think it's a bunnybear!
I have no idea why the second picture is larger that the rest. Anyway this was a fun experiment. One ear, or is it foot, had to be stitched by hand a bit as I pushed the stuffing too hard and found the seam was too close to the edge. I think it gave the bunny bear more charm. I also think I need more practice and another experiment is taking shape.
Thursday is almost over and then it's
TGIF!
Smiles,
Tess

How clever. A bunnybear. :) It's cuddly and soft. That's what matters.

That bunnybear is awesome! It looks so adventurous and creative! I tried my hand at winging a sewn stuffed bunny last month, and it didn't look nearly as interesting as yours. :)
