This is for all of you who think everything I make is beautiful. These guys, not so much. I thought it would be great to make some 'sweater friends' out of a sweater that was destined for Good Will. I made the bear/mouse one first. Wes took one look at it and said 'Mickey(?). Mouse(?).' (He says most things like they are a question, right now). And promptly took it and has slept with it everyday for two weeks. This was even before I added a face. He picked out the colors for the face.
Then I thought I would try bigger and maybe simpler with the bunny. Well, he's just lumpy. Ellie has claimed him, though. Crooked face and all. She says she loves him and that he smells like me.
Now Will is demanding a puppy. I will have to find a new/old sweater to try again.
I still think this is a workable idea. I have an old cashmere sweater that I would like to try. I'm pretty sure its the ribbing on this one that makes them look so funny - oh and some bad sewing on my part!
