Amigurumi tribute to Jimmy!

I've been at it again - designing my own amigurumis. I was making something for the LK Forum Easter swap when I had a brainwave and decided to design a rabbit, but not like all the other rabbits that are out there. My inspiration for my creation? My very own furball with the floppy ears, Jimmy!



The only difference between the two is that my amigurumi rendering has longer limbs and is rather skinnier and less fluffy! No amount of yarn will make an accurate rendering of Jim-Jim cuz he's just a big ball of white fluff that sheds everywhere and just becomes fluffier!




Anyway, here's a comparison!

See what I mean?
Anyway, the pattern is available for purchase here: http://www.geocities.com/swampyeweknitted/patterns.html
First pattern I've published for sale... hope someone buys a copy! lol

About Me

My photo
I'm a stay at home mum (yes it IS a non-profit industry - I've never had a penny for doing it and I don't know any mums who have!) to Aston who's 2 years old. I have 2 pet rabbits - Malcolm and Jimmy. I'm seperated from my husband and now live back in my hometown of Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey, Kent UK. I have also lived in London and West Sussex so I've knocked about the South East of England a bit! I'm a pagan and am inspired by natural things and love anything that's not been tampered with too much. I love watching rugby and football and my fave teams are Bath Rugby (cuz Matt Stevens plays for them! lol) and Fulham FC.
