Big bad bunny

Okay, by popular request (well one request!) here he is - mean, moody, malevolent - it's big bad bunny.



He's going to enter whiplash this week under the theme "your surly side". I should explain, I didn't plan for him to be so evil. I was doing my first softie - a wee wonderful bunny - as a practice for my Back Tack 3 swap. He was meant to have an oriental vibe, as that's what the black and white checks suggested to me.


I had serious PMT - the 'rip your head off' kind and it really impairs my judgement. I can't tell you the number of wardrobe disasters I've purchased under the influence of my hormones. So, I was stitching bunny's face, thinking he didn't look too happy, but it would be OK. As I stuffed him he got meaner and meaner and by the time I had taken his picture he was just plain nasty.

He does have his uses though - he's in my kids' playroom and "Big bad bunny is watching you" is evolving into quite a handy phrase for stopping misbehaviour in its tracks.

I like the western-style kerchief on your big bad bunny. And your pictures are great. Wish I had as photogenic a model! (The live one, not the bbb!)

Hee! Hee! I love a softie with a tough side... I wonder if a cranky critter would keep my pup in line when he is home alone. Can't wait to see how your Back Tack comes along. I started pottering today.

Amy said...

What a funny story. Thanks. It is amazing how each softie face takes on a distinct personality, seemingly on its on, eh?

I love his little bandit scarf. It, and his tiny scowl, just oozes surly. You are a shoe-in for sure.

Hi Ali, I've just had a quick tour of your blog, it's lovely. I love the big bad hormonally created bunny, PMT is a bitch isn't it (and if you got my earlier email it was teh reason for the awful postcards on another swap).
