Meet Blossom the bunny, inspired by the front cover of Nuigurumi Style, a Japanese craft book.
My little fairy loves rabbits, a love born from watching the rabbits and hares which frequent our garden early in the morning. So I decided to make her a little rabbit soft toy.
I like to think that she has an affinity with bunnies as she was an Easter baby. Anyway, she seems to quite like her new friend.
To make Blossom, I used the picture on the cover of Nuigurumi Style as inspiration. I don't own a copy of the book but found it through Flickr. I presume it is written in Japanese meaning it would be imposssible for me to understand. I studied French and Spanish at school but strangely Japanese never made the curriculum.
I used some linen I have in my stash along with some lecien fabric scraps. I pieced the scraps together in strips. The back and front don't match but I don't think it really matters. I like the way the coloured fabrics look like a little dress.
The picture on the front of the book shows little buttons added but as my fairy is only two I decided not to add any, although I think a collar of some sort may be pretty. Maybe felt or ribbon.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and maybe a crafty Saturday.
