Easter-friends of Albert and John

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

As I told you in my post before at Easter I was in a big work. I made lots of (OK, the expression 'lots of' is relative... maybe 'lots of for me' is the right one) soft toys for family and friends. My first one was the sheep called Bárány made of terry cloth and the second was Albert, the bunny. He was mentioned in the post before. His best friend John is not in this picture as he was made some days after I had made the photo...

The next one was the other bunny (the green one). It went to an other friend of mine. I don't know if it already has a name or not and to tell you the truth I don't even know if it is a he or she. The funny thing about this bunny is its clothes. My friend (who is now the owner of it) gave me some old clothes to use them for patchwork. The trousers, hat and top of bunny were made of her trousers. The fabric was white linen with yellow flowers on it.

Goose was chosen by my step-father (some of the soft toys didn't tell me who they wanted for owner, so I showed all of them and the new-owners could choose soft toy friends for themselves). His clothes are made of an old flannel shirt of mine, which didn't suit me anymore.

My mum took the hen. It has blue trousers from new fabric, but its buttons I inherited from my mother-in-law. I wanted to make jeans-like trousers (I didn't want to use denim as it is too thick for a soft toy like this). Hen also has a hat but it always loses that.

Goose stayed at home with B. He is standing in front of the computer and maybe he is reading this post at the moment... :D
