I picked up the supplies at Michaels on Northern Blvd. I chose to make a bunny first. And I followed a pattern from the book Sock and Glove. I made my bunny out of a pair of cheap pink gloves bought at the local 99 cent store.
The bunny did not come out as cute as I would have liked but I'll give myself some credit for getting started. I can't expect the first toy I make to be perfect. I watched Martha Stewart make a perfect bunny in 10 minutes on her show so I really thought it was going to be very, very easy.
I'll keep practicing until I get better. I've already started work on the dog pattern, using an old pair of Jon's socks.
