~Autumn rabbit~

Hello friends. I have been "mia" for a while, due to my health. 'Feeling a bit better now. 'Still wearing the arm splint for one more week. Have you ever made a rabbit, mouse, or some other critter and had trouble getting his whiskers just right? The Autumn rabbit above is my own design/creation. To get her whiskers just right, here is a tip: the whiskers are made from button & carpet thread. It is thicker than regular sewing thread. To get the whiskers to not droop down, I simply applied a thin coat of the clear Dritz Fray Check © to them before stitching them to her face. Do the whiskers look right to you all? In the near future, you all will be seeing more of Hannah the Autumn Rabbit. It's a surprise, so stay tuned.
