I finished my freehand stitching of the bunny. It came out ok. And I mean just ok. I was tempted to restitch but the Peanut liked it the way it came out.
Here you can see I added a pom-pom that I found lying in the craft drawer to give it some dimension.
Maybe I should have not left so much white space.
I stitched the felt first and then sewed the felt to the fleece. I thought about a blanket stitch. Didn't do one though.
I think next time I should plan ahead!
I have stitched felt to fleece before and didn't run into any problems. This time however I noticed the fleece fuzz coming up through the stitches. I don't know if there was anything I could have done to prevent that. It isn't noticeable at a distance but up close I can see it and it bugs me. Maybe I need a less nappy fleece.
