Easter bunnies

I made these little bunnies since easter is coming up. I changed the one on the left a bit to look more like Miffy the Dutch bunny since Harriet already has a couple of miffy things. Original pattern is here.

The other one is a little reversible that turns into this duck. It was pretty quick and would be a good gift since I wouldn't have to invest quite as much time as I usually do.  Pattern is here.
Happy Easter!

Japanese gems

I recently found this little t-shirt that my parents brought back for me when they went to Japan in 1983. I was just about Harriet's age then. So today we will celebrate the 31st anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland (if that is still open)!

And for another japanese gem, here is Eloise in my little jumper. Post of Harriet wearing it: here.

toy boat alley sailing

Over the weekend Harriet and I noticed we had a nice river in the alley because of the melting April snow storm. So we googled "homemade toy boat" and got to work. Here is the captain with her boat after the maiden voyage.

This little hippo is from the Itty Bitty toys book. A quick one to make and so cute!

This cow is from the Spud and Chloe book. To be completely honest, it's not my favorite. The body is kind of oddly shaped and I don't really like the way the eyes look. I redid them about 5 times and finally just kind of settled on these. There are supposed to be eyelashes, but it was basically impossible to get them to look perfect. This guy is also a bit larger than all the other ones I have made, I kind of like when they are smaller.
