Halloween, adoption certificate

It seems that as the weather gets cooler, I get more and more anxious for Samhain (Halloween). My Halloween themed Morg Bunnyz that was ordered is turning out tons cuter than I originally planned (my bad sketches didn't do the real thing any justice.)

I did hand dye some of my 100% wool yarn. One color turned out to be what I call a "Harvested Red" and the other came our with some green, purple, pink, and red. I have no clue what to call that one yet!

Here is a sneak peak at the newest Morg Bunnyz appearance 


I am going to post the steps to create a Morg Bunnyz. I will not include the pattern (sorry!)

Before anything else I sketch out a design pattern to basically follow/change if needed for the ordered or original designed Morg Bunnyz.
  1. Body is crocheted.
  2. Body is embroidered or anything special is added to it.
  3. Body is stuffed full, then finished off, and the ends are weaved in.
  4. Head is crocheted.
  5. Head is embroidered and decorated.
  6. Head is stuffed full, then finished off, and the ends weaved in.
  7. Check the sketch to determine which limbs/appendages are needed. Also see if any additional items or accessories needed. Anything past here is OPTIONAL based on the order or sketched design.
  8. Arm(s) are crocheted, stuffed full (edit-learned by trial and error...Do not stuff arms!!), and finished off with long tail to sew into the body.
  9. Leg(s) are crocheted, stuffed full, and finished off with long tail to sew into body.
  10. Tail is crocheted, stuffed lightly, and finished off with long tail to sew into the body.
  11. Ear(s) are crocheted and finished off with long tail to sew into the body.
  12. Again looking at the sketch it is decided where to use the "stitches" yarn to make it appear as if the limbs/appendages aren't "fully attached" (which all parts I create are UNLESS specifically ordered or sketched to have "half attached/half dangled.")
  13. Assemble the pieces together and sew them together using the tails of the crocheted pieces.
  14. With the "stitches" yarn to make the stitches on the body and limbs.
  15. Give the Morg Bunnyz his/her own photo shoot, then create their individual Adoption Certificate.
  16. The Morg Bunnyz is now ready for his/her adoption!

Here is an example of the adoption certificate and the first owner of a Morg Bunnyz
