Tulip bunnies, slugs, and a new kitty doll
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. I got a little sewing in. These are my tulip bunnies. I’ve had this fabric for a long time, and could never decide what I should make with it. It is very bright, cheerful, and showy, and needed a project where it could stand alone.
I finished some more 12-inch fleece Hug Me Slugs as well. This yellow one already has a new home. I’m sending him and some others out tomorrow. I hope the lines at the Post Office will be reasonable. From what I’ve heard, Monday is when people run in to start mailing all the things they braved Black Friday to purchase as gifts.
Both the tulip-print Hug Me Bunnies, and these two pink Hug Me Slugs are up in my Etsy toy shop for now.
I did get to the fabric stores this week though, and picked up some pretty new prints I intend to use for more bunnies. I have a couple of sock kittens to dress as well, but I am using solid colors and some decorative machine stitching on their clothes.
We just posted a new original, one-of-a-kind tabby cat art doll named Meredith over on our Ruffing’s site. She is another very pretty doll by Max Bailey.
The kitten sisters had their big spay day on Monday, and they got their microchips and their booster shots. They needed to rest for a couple of days. They are back to their usual selves now, and staying out loose in the house after bedtime. They have been surprisingly well behaved and quiet at night.
