Talia's rabbit

So, this is the rabbit I made for my niece Talia's birthday. She'll be three next week.

I used Legs as a jumping off point but made this one a bit larger, with different ears, a fat belly and legs, and a tail (which you can't see in this shot). If I do it again, I'll be more careful about smoothing out the batting in the legs and I'll use a bit less in the belly. As is, my husband swears this rabbit could be off of Newspaper Rock, what with the arms that like to be straight up in the air and the big belly. I can accept that. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Carrot, and it felted very nicely. I need to embroider a face onto this bunny. Or maybe not.
