I decided to buy some shorter faux fur fabric from a shop on Etsy, all the way in Russia. The fur arrived to me the past Monday and I started to work on a project, I wasn’t sure would turn out?! Then, low and behold, it worked, a bit of tweaking here and there, but it worked!! The idea in my head seemed so much more simple, but in real life, it was a bit trying at some points. Okay, back story, Taylor A. of wildgravity
on IG, makes and sells these amazing Rushton type cat, skunk, and bunny brooches. I bought two from her, here
. I realized, I had the faces in my possession and just needed the right faux fur to use to create a mini version. So, a bit reluctantly, I took my bunny brooch apart, her pin back, fur, and ears. Cleaned her up a bit. I didn’t want to at first, but told myself I still have the skunk. Haha.
Then, as I was sewing together the fur fabric… just like I was making the mini felt bears… I began my project. Tweaking the head, to sew on extra fur under the chin, since it made it harder for the fabric to close off at that point. I also had to add sections of the fur on the tummy area. Well, you see, the clay face that Taylor made is a bit larger and heavy as well, duh it’s clay! LOL So, I had to make some allowances for everything to work. In the end, here’s how my mini Rushton Type Bunny turned out!!
