See, it is not always doom, gloom here! I made this little pink 'bunny' today for a friend who's recently had a baby. I haven't made anything soft and squishy and cute for ages....I think the last things were a load of faceless dolls at uni...and they definitely weren't cute. Very squishy...but not in a nice way! I actually really enjoyed making something completely different. As you can see from the pictures, he isn't perfect - his face is a bit squished, and the green flowery bit is not in the 'correct' place. In fact he doesn't look much like a bunny either, and nothing at all like my original sketch! But I love him any way.....although not too much as I have to give him away tomorrow. I might just have to make myself one later on!
He (well his head) does bear an uncanny resemblance to Julie Arkell dolls - although completely unintentional. I only noticed when I got buried under a pile of books whilst looking for a card that I've hidden somewhere and the cute Julie Arkell book landed at my feet!
