Hare Plushie




Using the same material from the jumper that I made my newest dragon with I decided to have a go at making a rabbit. I used the same pattern as the fox but change it slightly. I really should have sketched more profiles of rabbits to use in the pattern before I rushed into making the toy though. His head turned out to be very fawn-like. His nose is too long, but the triangular felt shape I've sewn on the tip hopefully makes it recognisable enough for this critter to be the bunny I intended.

I like him.
What's going on in the background of the top pic, is it a layer in photoshop going over the top of the animal?
P.x

Hi Penny!
Yeah, I was trying out a bit of photoshop nonsense but I don't think it worked. I think it takes the focus away from the toy. I used photoshop to colour the white background purple to try and make the plushie stand out more.

Would be great to see some artwork using photos of your handmade characters, and then adding more background in photoshop, drawings, and other elements as well perhaps.
I really like this hare, and the fox too.
