Bunnymund plushie - Start Believing Mate by CrowMaiden Bunnymund plushie - Start Believing Mate by CrowMaiden
I saw Rise of the Guardians at the beginning of the month. And adored it, especially Bunny. So I wanted a plushie of his mini form. But I've been short on time, so I was thinking about commissioning someone for him. Buuut...Everyone either wasn't using materials I liked, or they were way out of my price range. So I made my own afterall!

The fabric store had a scrap that was a couple feet square, of the most beautiful soft gray faux-fur on the day I went. It was meant to be.

The designs in his fur were trimmed in, because the faux-fur had a lighter top pile than the bottom. So I brushed the fur straight up and then cut away the patterns. White polar fleece was also used along with pink, green and white felt. I used needle sculpting to indent his eyes.

I had a hell of a time with the sewing, the faux fur kept sliding. The most noticeable part is in his cheeks where the white fabric is higher on one side. And I didn't remember to put seam allowances right into the pattern I made so that ended up being a nightmare too.

He's a little over 13 inches tall, and he's very huggable. I love him and his big grumpy eyebrows, flaws and all.

He took about 3 days to finish, and I'm glad I made the time for him.

Sooooo, I was wondering if you were possibly willing to make another one of these adorable things? I don't have a clue about how much the materials must have cost, or even about shipping or how much would be added on for labor, but if you would considering making one on commission, could I please have an estimate? *puppy dog eyes*

I really appreciate your interest in him, thank you <3

But I have to say no to doing one on commission, sorry. The cost would be well over a hundred dollars and I couldn't even do it until January at the earliest.

Sorry about that! I'm afraid he just isn't a cheap or simple thing to make xD;

You should really look into selling these. I know loads of kids who would buy them.

Oh my goodness this is so adorable! I think Bunny's my favorite, too (although I'm also pretty partial to Santa) but this is just... ee~! So cute! I always think faux fur is a pain to work with just because it gets all over the place (I was using feathers on one of my plushies this morning and that's almost worse) The pink part looks softer than felt... I'm actually really interested in trying needle sculpting, too, but I can't fin many good tutorials for it or anything... Super cute, though! :D

Aw, thanks!! I find that the easiest way to reduce the mess with the fur is to cut as straight up and down as possible, and then wipe the edges with a damp rag. It keeps it from flying up my nose at least.

Feathers? I don't even want to think about it xD; And it really is felt~ But a nice thick felt.

Just dive in and try the needle sculpting, I say~! It's not hard to do the basic stuff, and it makes a huge difference :3

Thanks again!

Ah, that's a good idea... I don't plan to work with it much but for future reference... And I didn't sew the feathers, at least, I glued them to the character's clothes... still not very fun, though.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people say it's very useful for making plushie boobs so I'm definitely thinking of trying it out! xD And you're welcome~!
