Rabbit Sheep Make-do

My piece is almost complete. I still need to sew the bottom closed, but I couldn’t wait to post a picture. I was really pleased at how easy the arm sewed up. I used my sewing machine to stitch most of it and then inverted it and hand sewed the remainder using just a a bit of fiberfill. One thing that helped was using homespun cotton for the backing. Homespun has a little more give than regular cotton fabric. Whenever I make stuffed pieces I use the least stuffing that is necessary to give it dimension. I don’t like tightly stuffed items. Again, thanks to Rebecca from The Simple Quiet for this pattern.
