Jackalope

Born five months later from my niece, my nephew also celebrated his first birthday and the amigurumi I made him was a special request from his Pixar fanatic dad... A Jackalope like the one in "Boundin". He said that my nephew loved that Pixar Short so much that he'd behave and sit still whenever its played. Well, 'nough said. ^^

After collecting enough reference, I went on to making the pattern. My first plan was to make two medium sized amigurumis of the Jackalope and Sheep, but changed my mind when my technique for making the fluffy texture of the Sheep's wool kept hitching. So being pressed for time, I decided to drop the sheep and just make the Jackalope in bigger size.

I felt a little bad that I wasn't able to make the sheep but the outcome of the Jackalope definitely made up for it. Well, why wouldn't it? It's almost as big as my nephew. Hahaha! I hope it helps him behave more. ^^
