My creative space: stitching



Now that I have finally got all my plastic covered zip purses on Felt I can get on with some other crafting again! Here is a little peek of a rabbit toy I am making for a new baby boy. It is from the Softies book and is called 'Blossom Bunny' by Sarah Bowe of redfeltflower.blogspot.com.  I saw on Bobby Robbins blog the idea of recycyling a baby wipes packet by cutting it up and using it to make a crinkle noise in a toy so I put a piece in each of the bunny's ears. I am going to put a little bell into the stuffing too - hope he likes it!
