Amazing Craft – Sewing Sophia Rabbit Kit
Amazing Craft’s kit to sew Sophia rabbit contains all of the materials and a comprehensive and clear instruction booklet to make a sweet little toy rabbit. Sophia, who stands only 20cm tall, is just waiting to be someone’s best friend! Sophia is made with safety eyes and safety joints making her suitable for a child to play with and she can sewn by machine or by hand.
Sophia is made from a soft grey, top quality German mohair, has black safety eyes and is jointed (moveable arms, legs and head!) and has a cute, fluffy pink faux fur tail. Sophia can be made using a sewing machine or by hand sewing. The 14 page instruction booklet has clear instructions to guide you through the entire process and is supported with our online videos should you prefer a more visual way to learn.
The Sophia kit contains mohair and wool felt for the paw pads and ear inserts but you can also re-use the pattern and make her from a fabric of your choice (non-stretchy fabrics work best with this pattern). The kit also includes a little plastic weighting which gives her a tactile and squidgy feel in your hand when complete.
