Day Twenty-Two – cell phone charm

It’s the last day of the month, phew. For my final project for the August Challenge, I made a cell phone charm. I was delighted yesterday to realize that I finally have a phone that has a place to attach a cell phone charm. I don’t know why but the first thing I think of when I think of cell phone charms… rabbits.

I had a bit of difficulty with this piece. I originally started with a silhouette of a rabbits entire body, but it was so small and so many areas, it was really getting distorted and lost, so I redid it as just the head. I was not too far into it when I suddenly realized it’s likeness to another very recognizable logo, ahem, that I wasn’t trying to align myself with. Honest, I was actually thinking of my old pet rabbit, and using this picture as a reference I finished it anyway. Now, after completing it, I’m not sure if it even looks like a rabbit. Well, it looks like a rabbit if I tell you that’s what it is, but if you didn’t know that first, would you recognize it?

Anyway, the rabbit is made of a tan wool felt, sewn onto a dark brown poly felt, then sewn onto a wool handspun, handknit swatch, that was then hand felted by yours truly. The completed piece is way bigger than I originally intended it to be. After cutting out multiple profiles, sewing and then ripping many times, and knitting and felting multiple backgrounds, I decided it was good enough.

This concludes the August challenge. I look forward to finally finishing reading the books I’ve started, doing some much neglected laundry and dishes and maybe even cooking some real dinners again. That’s sounds pretty pathetic, lol.

  1. I will admit that when I first looked at it I wasn’t sure what it was and then I thought it was the PB bunny. But- it’s very cute and I know you love rabbits.
