What do you do?

What do you do when stuck in bed? I like to be kept busy so it's a bit hard on me when I have to stay quiet and wait to feel better. I also felt a bit sad for my son, waiting for his Maman patiently, so I made him an amigurumi bunny.

I am a bit too picky and impatient to really follow instructions. I began to make the head and body of the bunny in the  Simply Crochet issue 2 but I didn't like the hands,feet and ears so I replaced them with simple, geometrical progressions close to the famous Amineko model . I picked a variegated sock yarn because I get bored easily, but made sure to make the nose and hands with white yarn to make them more recognizable.

I used the Darice eyes which are the cheaper on the market, with shank and washers for safety. I made sure that they were placed, just like on my drawings, exactly equidistant from ears and nose.

The most difficult part was to embroider the nose...I used a tutorial from Beautiful Nightmare , but lightly traced the smile with a pencil before embroidering. I wanted it cheerful and quiet at the same time, what do you think?


My son is 6 but fortunately not too old for hugging cute amigurumis. This little bunny is now on his bed and loves storytelling time.
