Felix Case

Felix the rabbit was bought from Savers . With a new nose and larger eyes he was cleaned and came up like new. The bell he is wearing was from a Christmas present, Just the right size! and the bow was a strip of cloth drawn and coloured to look like tartan. They now live in the classroom. I had just the best fun making the theme for the books.
This is how the Felix case started life as. A $3 cardboard case from the $2 shop.
This is after. I covered it in red cotton fabric, coloured in some tartan pattern with pencils and crayons.
Using real leather from a pair of pants from Savers I made the straps and the corner patches. Unless you are Hercules i don't think they would be great as pants.
