Meet "Picasso" the fastener Bunny

     Well he is finally finished. Meet Picasso my Fastener Bunny. First I would like to thank Teresa from Konigotes for the name.Once the beret and scarf were put on him I knew that the name was perfect.

     I had initially designed and created him to give away, but I decided instead that he would make a perfect "mascot" for the Amigurumi Obsession blog. So I guess that means he will find a home next to Snoopy WWII Flying Ace the only other of my designs that I have decided to keep. 

     The reason he is called a "fastener" bunny is that he has all kinds of fasteners that are made to teach little kids how to snap (the wrist wrap), button (lapels on the vest), Velcro (on the scarf), zip (front of the vest) and lace& tie (under layer of the vest). The idea comes from the Playskool line of "Activity" dolls. I loved the idea and thought it would make a good Amigurumi.

     As for the Tony Stewart poster. Well I took the pictures at work and thought that the poster would make just as good a background as anything else. So now yes, I guess you could say that Picasso is "Smoke" fan too. 

Happy Easter to all.... and Happy Ami,        Shannon
