hey Mom.....

... what? ... oh, ...silly  me.... somebody says "Mom" and I look around.  As if..... ahhahah...















aren't ya gonna make my shot pouch?  Look... the nice soft suede-y material is all set out....



















My back is wide open...kinda drafty in here......

















okay...working on it...oh, just a minute...the Girl Guides just knocked.... difficulties ensued.... 















...were overcome.....



















how's that?  Pouch in position...all closed up and cosy now... can't even tell where the seam is...almost.... 
















Ah...great shot.... but, oh, wait....those ears.... just a minute.........















a few stitches to hold the creases in position works wonders....















yeh...I know.... a tiny thing.....















But, look .. it makes a big difference.  Well, it does to me........

and...he now has a name.  My sister took one look and said.... he looks like a Scratty Eddy..... so please meet Eddy.... and he is a bit scratty looking although it's not called that by the mohair companies.  It is "sparse, long".... but, a rose by any other name....

I forgot the most important picture earlier...

Here is the bunny I wanted to make..... just like one made by Nancy Sholtey
There is no pattern...it is one that she had for sale several years ago...but, I couldn't bring myself to pay quite as much as she wanted for him.  So...when I found this fabric...decided to give one a try.  I think he is pretty close...and very cute.....

This guy has the cutest expression, and I like his wispy fur.

I think it's the way you have tilted his eyes and have the ears horizontal that makes him so precious.
