bought a metre of this cotton & steel fabric and after cutting out some wiksten harem pants and a small skirt, i couldn’t stop thinking about the perfectly roundish crotch cut out left on my mat.
i did a bit of noodling w/ some taped together iQ takeout bags + some other fabric scraps and came up with this pattern.
the ears are actually made out of the same piece of fabric, and of course (!) lined w/ avocado dyed lawn. pants are a kaufman chambray remnant. stuffing is from another animal my dog partially ate (organ transfer) and it’s really jammed in there to make him firm and easy to grip.
this dog/rabbit/gremlin creature has jumped the queue for favourite toy and while i’d love to say it’s because it’s so sweet, it’s probably because the girls saw me thinking about it, building it, looking at it again, fiddling with it and treating it thoughtfully over a few days. they probably also noticed i relaxed and was more present when i had him in my hands.
anyways long preamble but this is huckleberry (the pants tho!) and he’s pretty neat🧵✂️
