Day 60.....from Hell!

It's been a challenging day.  
Even the above fq didn't turn out as I had hoped.
The good news is, there's always tomorrow!

I spent most of today racing against the clock
to finish Maggie's Bunny costume.
Did I tell you how very much I DETEST this
Of course, I must add that I changed a lot of the details,
so I had to continuously adjust the directions.
I do like the challenge....
but when you're getting down to the wire,
not so much!

I've condensed the bunny above,
so that I could fit it all into the picture.
Hopefully I'll get a pic of Maggie wearing this tomorrow.

I do like the pink tummy!
So soft and plush!!

.....and then I changed the pattern to add a pompom cotton tail
I'm not good with pompom construction,
so I Googled it and found this:
the directions called for 2 toilet paper rolls....
I didn't have time to wait for 2 rolls to become available  ;-0
so I used two pool noodles

I like the way it turned out

thanks for stopping by

Mag's will love her bunny costume and I know she'll look adorable. Love the pom pom tail. I used to make slippers from my Gram's pattern. The part I always hated were the damn pompoms. Hope tomorrow is a better day. xo

Congratulations, Judy, on making one of the cutest bunny costumes I have ever seen. I hope you get a photo of Maggie in it!
Maybe the dyed fabric didn't turn out the way you wanted it... but I really like it! :) ~ Christina

Ditto what Christina said ... I like your dye job. Looks like a really neat sunset breaking through a stormy sky. And I sympathize with your frustration making that precious bunny suit. A very long time ago my neighbor gave me a Burda pattern for a blouse that she had made and that I had admired. Ignoring the fact that she was a professional seamstress, and I was just learning to sew simple children's clothes, I managed to screw up some expensive fabric ... and almost have a nervous breakdown doing it!!! Never sewed a Burda again!!! You've got guts, girl!!!
