A little bunny's backside
Not only did I catch up from working the front, I actually finished the backside of the little boy bunny!
His collar is cream Petite Very Velvet, worked in basketweave, and trimmed with Impressions. The same value of Impressions was used for the hem of his coat and for shading.
The wider stripes of his coat were worked in Vineyard Silk Classic Citron with VSC Dandelion for shading in a slanted Gobelin stitch .A lighter value of Impressions was used in tent stitch for the pencil stripes. Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 005 in a Leviathan stitch variation created the buttons.
More Burmilana in an encroaching Gobelin stitch formed his bottom. For a bushier cotton tail, I switched to Silk & Ivory Sand in French knots.
