Big Foot



I finished my Big Foot Bunny! His pattern is in Zoe Mellor Knitted Toys. I made this guy in woolease that I had stashed. He's not soft enough for my 6 month old but he's the perfect shelf sitter. My Grandmother-in-law has a birthday this month and I'm thinking that he would LOVE to go home with her. I included a picture of the bunny before the bow tie since the bow adds personality. The pattern was simple but had lots of pieces to sew in (the soles and the ears). It took me two weeks to get motivated enough to finish it up but I am sure glad that I did. I opted to skip a mouth so that he had a classic toy look. Next on my list? Something from Lucinda Guy...

Thanks! My daughter (she's 6) decided his face was a little dog-like so I added the mouth after all. I'm happier now and she says "Mom, NOW he doesn't look anything like dog."

He is adorable! He turned out wonderfully and looks completely huggable. Nice job!
