FOOTBALL RABBIT


This is another rabbit item requested by a former co-worker.  This time, I took my pattern for Peter Rabbit and dressed him like a football player.  My former co-worker is Denver Broncos fan.  That is why the one pictured is dressed to play for the team.  If it was up to me, I would have dressed him ready to play for the Kansas City Chiefs, my favorite football team.  The logos used for the one pictured can also be found on this blog.  There are two logos on the helmet and one logo on his jersey.  The pattern comes with two options for a tail for the RABBIT.
