A Change of Plan


I had to give up on making the little felt animals.  After many failed attempts whatever I was doing wasn't working.  Many of the pieces were so tiny to turn inside out and sometimes I was required to machine sew through four layers of felt.  I think I will just take inspiration from the book and make my own version of felt animals.  The book and its instructions were far too advanced for my skill level.

Anyway, I still felt the urge to make 'something' so I turned to the patterns in one of my 'Tilda' books.  I felt much more comfortable in understanding the patterns and instructions.

Here is my first attempt at making a bunny.  She is meant to be wearing clothes but as I made her from patterned fabric I don't think she feels too nude!  I will have a go at making her a hat and dress and who knows what creative urge I will get next!

What a shame about the felt folk... I wonder if you could up-size them so they're not so fiddly? Cute bunny. xx

Your Tilda rabbit is perfect - just like the one in the book! and I love the fabric - very nice!

So sweet! Well done, Simone.

She looks fine as she is (not nude at all), but little crocheted (or knitted) sweat would be a perfect addition. :)
