Hence my latest creation, a squirrel whom we've named Winter. He's also sporting the new 9mm black safety eyes which were a Christmas gift from one of my crafty friends. Winter stands about 3 inches tall and was heavily inspired by Moonscreations's Periwinkle Squirrelie. I winged the pattern and he stands about 3 1/2 inches tall. I'm thinking of making a small bunny with a fun fur tail to be Winter's companion, or possibly squirrels in three other colours. We'd have one for every season then. If anyone has any suggestions for other critters that could incorporate a small amount of fun fur please share your thoughts in the comments section.
Hedgehog? Lion? Porcupine?
Ooh, a lion with a fun fur mane. I hadn't thought of that one. That could be cute. Thanks for the suggestions Rayleen.
what about a nice red fox?
Wondering if you know where your friend got the safety eyes? I keep trying to find them online but it's practically impossible...
Something I've seen that's cute is horses with fun fur manes. I sympathize I do not like crocheting with any of those types of yarns...
Hi Anonymous, my friend ordered the eyes through Sunshine Discount Crafts (www.sunshinecrafts.com/). She said the shipping was kind of pricey, but they sell the eyes in large quantities so the good side is you won't have to order very often. Just use the 'search' function on their website and type in "eyes" or "animal eyes" if you want to see just the safety eyes.
Have fun shopping!
