While cleaning out my craftroom I wondered if I needed to keep all these magazine because I have probably 20-25 of them. So I reasoned with myself that if I make at least one thing out of each magazine, then they would be a keeper. So I started with the magazine above and decided to make this rabbit
Pretty simple in design ( I forgot to photograph the second page of the pattern) and I was happy that the pattern was full size, something very rare in older magazines. They show them on graph paper and you have to increse them. Imagine how hard that was in the days before copiers!
Anyway, I cut out all my pieces and started sewing. The very first instruction is the one that I failed. Sew the felt ear with the fabric ear, right sides together and turn. The sewing part I got, the turning part not so much. I tried for at least 45 minutes to get one ear turned and could NOT do it to save my life. It just wouldn't turn and I don't own one of those "turning" things. So I gave up and cut out the ears again and sewed them on the right side out. Easy peasy. Except this gave poor Larry gigantic ears!
Poor Larry! He doesn't seem to be very happy with his ears!
"What are you looking at! Haven't you ever seen a big eared, pink floral rabbit before"!
So this is a crafting fail. Although Larry will become a part of my Easter decorations, because once I've made something with a face, I can't throw it away!
(Larry also doesn't like the fact that he is pink and male, but he will just have to get over that stereo-type!)
Hope everyone has a great Hump Day.
