Taking bear for a walk
She also LOVES her lizard. :) Sometimes I think she likes it more than anything.
Doesn't go anywhere without it!
So I've been wanting to make some new friend for Alina for a long time. And when I came cross this book, I fell in love instantly with the Rabbit.
I used Italian mohair that I ordered from Russian long time ago.The fabric was so soft and rich that I was afraid to cut it.
But I am so glad I finally found the courage. :) I am so proud of the result.
Here is my "Velveteen" Rabbit!
I made the ears a little longer than they were supposed to.
I used oil pastels to tone the eyes- I think it gives them more depth.
I think he is perfect! But the best part is that Alina loves him! :)

I don't know if it is just the age, but Alina doesn't play with dolls that much. She prefers her animals:)

Have you seen Me to You Bear?
The cutest Tatty Teddy... with blue nose, patches and stitches... You can learn about his story here.
I have been obsessed with them for the past ten years!
I got the first one as a gift I was in college,and I brought him with me to the US.
The second one was a last years birthday present. He flew to US all the way from Russia.
But I still hope that one day my dream will come true and that I will add giant Blue Nose Tatty Teddy to my collection :)
Unfortunately, they are only sold in UK, and they do not ship overseas because of the size.But I am believer. The dreams do come true! :)
For now, I thought, why not to make blue nose friend of my own?!
That's how this lovey dovey Teddy was born!
This is a very easy project, perfect for beginner. Only basic crocheting knowledge is required.
This pattern can be found in my ravelry, craftsy or etsy shop:)
Isn't he a cutie?!!:)
