While I thought I would never do an arigurumi simply because they are usually small and complicated … Well bored with the project I was working on, I did my first on an impulse. From my bed, I reached out to the only skein that was on my night stand and started this cute rabbit. In green. I quickly notice that you better not be distracted! It’s about counting and working in non-stop rows … so you need your full undivided attention!
My prototype got a shorter leg and a shorter arm. I knew about the leg [interrupted I lost the count] but the arm was a surprise [thank you Arno]. It could be that the sewing reduced its length. Anyway, my mama fell in love with my imperfect rabbit. We picked the eyes together [via Facetime] in a stack that I still had from my Grand-Mère and soon it will be ready to ship overseas. She will be thrilled with her surprise!
Due to the enthusiasm about my greenie, I decided to start another arigurumi. And once again, I was surfing the web and found a few nice animals …
- pig – is that a pig?
- teckel – pinkie [a variation of brownie] | brownie
- cat – sylvester
- bear – bidon
- mouse – hug buddy
- owl – cutie owl
- Baby cuddly
