Run away! Run away!

A person on Craftster today had an awesome suggestion. She suggested that we turn one of the cute little Easter bunnies (see previous post) into the killer rabbit from Monty Python's Holy Grail. We are soooo gonna do this. The Eldest is dying to have a killer rabbit.

Now the question is: how do we do this?

I'm going to use embroidery floss for the evil eyebrows and possibly the eyes, though I might use a button for those. That parts easy, but the mouth?

In the photo, (click to enlarge it) there is blood all around the mouth, and a lot of it too. I could, again, do embroidery, but it might take forever. I could also use paint on it or even food coloring. I'll have to think about that one. I might make up a small swatch and test out the paint & food coloring to see how it will work and if it will spread out. We're going to be dealing with acrylic yarn here, so craft paint might be better than food coloring.

There are also the huge fangs. I-cord seems the way to go. It needs to be fairly stiff. Floral wire poked up through the I-cord might make that workable. I've never really worked with i-cord that much. Can you make one end pointy? You know, like a fang? Hmmmm...

So, while I'm supposed to be cleaning house and making cute bunnies for the company coming over this weekend, what will I really be doing? You guessed it! I will, of course, take pics of the whole project for you. See ya on Monday!

Run away! Run away! Run away! :)
