Soft Samurai (Rabbit, During)

Today is bink's birthday, and we're going the the country to play mini-golf at a course hand-made by an artist and sculptor,
so this is brief, 
but I'm soooo excited to show you the rabbit's evolving outfit, made from a crewel embroidery cushion-cover from the Thrift Store [shown in previous post].

I cut out the crewelwork grapes and their surrounding foliage and fruits (a pomegrante!), and last evening I stitched (for hours) pink edges all the way round:

It has instantly become my favorite creation ever (of the moment), even undone. You can see the waistcoat's only pinned together, and it needs a back, but that will be relatively simple .

It looks to me like samurai armor. (Hm, almost everything I do lately turns into decorative, soft armor.)

This sort of thing, c. 1880s.  Via

Samurai Bunny! Thanks for the link.
I thought of the Donnie Darko bunny too (Frank).

I wish I could wear the bunny's waistcoat.
