I've finished sewing a Peter Rabbit family for my daughter just hours before Christmas morning!

http://s781.photobucket.com/albums/y...bbit%20family/

I used the tutorial at http://www.hazelnutgirl.blogspot.com, which worked really well. These guys are at 75%, and I'm hoping to make a mom at 100% down the line.

The material is felted, thrifted wool mens' suit jackets.

I'm so pleased! I hope she loves them.

Oh, my goodness. CUTE.

I think I just found the gift I want to make for at least some of the littles on my Christmas list next year. How perfect would it be to give these, and a copy of the book?

I love your bunnies!

I have just found this forum and am working on my first toy, but I am inspired! I have saved the tutorial away for the future, and cannot wait until I have the skill to make them.

To give a few of these bunnies with the copy of the book is a great idea!!
