But I don’t post on Sundays so, alas, yarn scrap Sunday shall never exist, catchy a name as it is. But that doesn’t mean I can’t feature yarn scrap projects!
As is my personality to do, sometimes I offer to make someone something even when I already have orders added up, because I’m an impulsive person. In this case, it was right after I was offered some really good rice from the best cook at my job.
It was really good rice.
And the cook said to me, “Danni, you always enjoy my cooking so much. Next week, I’m going to make some flan just for you.”
I don’t particularly like flan!
But I could hardly say that immediately after the line “you always enjoy my cooking so much,” so to minimize the guilt of accepting this woman’s efforts, I said “and I’ll make you something, too! Anything you want.” Luckily, she asked for something easy to make: a stuffed animal for her neighbor’s new(ish) baby.
…Buuut it became a yarn scrap thing after I realized I started a project without sufficient yarn to finish. So here it is!
I’m particularly proud of how the shape of the feet came out.
I didn’t have enough brown to finish all the limbs (and later realized that the brown of the body and brown of the ears, arms, and legs are different anyways) so I gave him white-tipped feet. I think it worked out pretty well until I ran out of brown entirely and had to give him one completely white foot. But I guess that’s kinda cute.
And the toddler apparently ended up loving it! Except, in the nature of toddlers, went straight for the eyes, so those had to be removed. I remember those days from my niece. Oops. I offered to sew on toddler-safe eyes, but work-buddy said the baby was picky and she didn’t want to mess with how much she liked the now-eyeless bunny. Hey, if it works for her, it works for me!
Disclaimer: Yarn Scrap Thursday is not actually going to be a thing. I’m just reminiscing about my days of book blogging, where memes were abundant.
