Salvaged Bunny


While going through lil' b clothes recently I noticed one of her favorite shirts was fraying beyond remedy and a favorite pair of tights had huge holes in the toes. One of my motto's for the New Year might be "spot keeping crap!" because I keep noticing things around the house that are in shambles but I still keep them, thus having a house bulging with too much stuff. So when I saw this, I thought, "This is crap, throw it away."(pardon the crassness) But then I had a better idea.

I realized that I love the fabric on the tights and shirt, and I should use it. So combining a worn -out pair of wool socks with the tights and shirt, I made lil' b a stuffed animal of her choice, a bunny. So here's, "Steeko" as she calls it, and she always reminds me that she's a girl bunny.

I was going to make it while she slept, but she got so mad when she heard this idea. So we spent Saturday trying to "make it together", which included a lot of frustration, love, cute moments, mess, and stuffing all over the house. Steeko's a unique and slightly ghetto new addition to our house, but made with love.
