When I first started to sew again, after many years of not, my first thought was to make childrens clothing and real homemade soft toys, like the ones I grew up with. I made a dress for Mia and I think that’s about as far as I got – think I’ll leave kids clothing to Imba and Cotton Kiwi. I made a rabbit for Mia, which I rather liked doing and went rather well, and have made many of these rabbits for family members since. Then I made a bag, and I really really liked making bags, so that’s pretty much the way I continued.
I decided the other day to make a few more rabbits for my shop for Christmas, there has been the occasional inquiry about them, and I had a vague notion that I liked making them. Spotlight the word “vague” here, blooming heck and gosh-darnit have been said on repeat from my sewing room, along with “ah, that’s why I don’t make these things anymore”. The first one I made I put the head on backwards and it was all really downhill from there. The end result I am pleased with, but I think I’m too lazy to really work for hours on one project. So, I make bags ok, and remind me when I consider rabbits again about full circles.
