I am pleased with the way that Peter Cottontail turned out. I made him as part of my whimsical doll series: tall and thin. It is a little tricky to balance these dolls. You have to stuff the top 2/3rds with light batting and then the bottom 1/3 with heavy stuffing beads. This doll I backed with a quilt-like backing that I sewed from 3-inch squares of wool I had overdyed with the same colors in the hooked part of the doll. I still need to find the right eggs or tiny basket for his hands. But other than that, he is finished just in time for my Easter decorating.
Wools I used:
8-Value packs: Milkweed 115; Violet Twilight 132; Crab Apple 135; Rosehip 145
Texture packs for coat: Jack Horner Plum 111; Rowan Raspberry 112
