BT3 landed

The bunny has landed with Kelli, so glad she likes it, I refer to it as "it" I don’t think it’s a she or a he, it’s an it. Go figure. I was so happy to be creating something for Kelli, she’s stepped up to the plate previously as a BT angel. She’s taken some excellent photos, thanks Kelli.

Would you like to know the details? Here goes.

We have a double sided dress using Lynn’s pattern. I’ve modified it and it closes using a hook, the ribbon just wasn’t working. The dress is reversable, one side has red velvet with a coordinating itty bitty yoyo. The BHG pattern was also a little painful, there was no way I was going to be able to sew the legs in the way they suggested so I improvised, stuffed the body and legs and stuffed the legs in the body and slipped stitched them in by hand.


The other side of the dress I created a pattern of sorts using the blog addresses of BT3 participants. I’ve used a different inkjet product from previous, can’t find the link at the moment, the results are heaps better, a much finer detailed print.


There are five buttons! Two for the eyes, two for the arms and one bellybutton. The letter K, where is it you ask? Why it’s on the bunny’s butt of course, NO reflection on Kelli at all, Kelli, you know this πŸ˜‰ . That’s about it for the details. This time around I stuffed with some undied wool roving I have and it’s a much better stuffie as a result. More dense, less lumpy, very happy.


Can you see the resemblence to JaJa Binx? Unintentional, but it’s there.

Full set of pics on flickr. So people get your pics into us by the end of the month so we can launch the BT gallery on the crafty world.

    I like ‘it’. I finally managed to make one myself that was fairly resonable looking taking your idea of hand sewing the legs on. I really love the reverse side of the dress, very clever indeed, and looks just wonderful. A real keepsake.

    Love your bunny, the whole combo is great. Had similar probs with the legs, ended up with them stuffed through the back opening to sew them up.

    Love the text on the reverse dress! Awesome. And the ultra cute inner-ear. Love it. I must get myself organised for a BT4…

    This is so lovely! I really like the effect of the inkjetted fabric – very classy look – if you ever track down the link to the product let us know! – Thanks for sharing your wonderfully innovative stuff, very inspirational.
