Sighting Of the Very Rare Rabbit-Mouse

Have you ever wondered what a mouse with rabbit ears would look like?
 
Come on! You know that you want to know!
I can help you! 
I have seen – AND photographed – the very rare and hardly ever seen rabbit-mouse!
 
Wanna see?
 

 
 
 
But  no laughing!!!
Or you might scare it away!
Or hurt its feelings.
 
 
Or my feelings for that matter  ….
 
So you are wondering how it comes that I get to see such a rare creature???
Really wanna know? 
Sure?!
Well, get ready for some really stupid creativeness … on my part …
 
*
So it all started with this  
 
Photo from Bustle and Sew
  
It is CUTE!!!
 
So yesterday we had such a nice sunshiny afternoon that I thought it would be stupid to spend it inside the flat behind the sewing machine. 
Still I felt kinda like DOING something … with my hands … so I thought I might handsew a cute little mouse. 
 
I even had some scraps from cut up fleece sweaters from the kids lying around … perfect!
 
While I cut out the pattern I got this STUPID weird strange tempting idea. 
What if I could make a bunny instead of a mouse?
 
I just had spent the morning thinking about Easter presents for the kids. That might explain SOME of the weirdness of the idea. Not all. I know. Guess it is just me. 
 
So instead of following the pattern I started drafting some rabbit ears … and cutting them out …
 
I cut out the fabric pieces and spent a nice relaxing afternoon in the yard handsewing my softie-pincushion-thingy. 
Everything was nice and peaceful. 
Until I added the ears to the mouse rabbit!
That was when I realized changing the ears to rabbit ears will NOT make a rabbit. 
It will make a mouse with rabbit ears! :-/
 
Yes, I know. You probably would have figured that right from the beginning …
Well, apparently I did not. 
 
I was bummed. I did not know what to do. 
I tried to make the face of the mouse rabbit a bit less pointy … but it still did not look like a rabbit. 
I was thinking about undoing the ears … making them into mouse ears. 
But somehow I could not do it. Do not know why. 
So instead I finished up the ridiculous looking rabbit.
 
 
And that is how it happened that I got to photograph the rare rabbit-mouse. :-)
 
Well, I guess not all projects turn out well. And it was my own stupid fault. 
To be honest – I feel kinda attached to the rabbit-mouse. 
It kinda looks like it needs an extra-portion of love.
 
And the funny thing:
Little man – who instantly stole it away –
 
He LOVES EVERYTHING soft and cuddly! Seriously! He stole a tiny pillow I was making before I could even close the hole from turning!
 
recognized it as a RABBIT
He looked at it and scrunched up his nose and made a sniffing noise. Which is his “word” for rabbit!
Yeah, he is not too talkative yet! ;-)
 
 Okay, then again he has just passed the stage where every four-legged animal is a dog. 
Now there are cats in his world, too. 
So MAYBE – just maybe – it could be that pretty much EVERYthing with long ears to him is a rabbit. But I chose not to think about that too much …
 
So I guess we are just gonna have a rabbit-mouse living with us from now on. 
But the next one will be a mouse! Just a mouse!
 
So, have you messed up any crafting projects lately? ;-)

    Liebe Ursula,

    erst einmal wünsch ich Deinem kleinen Mann ganz schnell gute Besserung!

    danke auch für den Link zu dem tollen Magazin und dem Mäuseschnittmuster! Zum reinpieksen find ich die eigentlich viel zu schade, aber so als Deko zwischen den Blumentöpfen? :O) Mal sehen *schmunzel*

    Ich wünsch Dir trotz allem einen schönen Tag!
    ♥Ganz liebe grüße♥
    Claudia

    Die Mäuse sind ja süß. Und du hast recht – Nadeln reinstecken?? Ich weiß nicht ;o)

    LG Annett
