New Easter Punch Needle Pillow!

Sometimes I see something that inspires me and an old rug is what motivated me to make this new piece.
The original was a cat, but I thought, that would work as a bunny, so a little bit of recreating and a new piece was born.
I used variegated linen on the rabbit and the rest of the colors are an over dyed variegated floss.
I started with the green and realized I didn't have enough, so I added another shade to fill in the rest.
In the old days, woman used scraps of old clothing, so many rugs are multi-colored or done in blocks of color.
I guess I got the look without trying;)
I hope you enjoy my newest piece, it will be for sale, tomorrow night, on ebay.

I hope I can get a good outdoor photo tomorrow, the flash really makes the color more vivid than they are.

I subscribed to your blog primarily for the sewing; but have found myself absolutely loving the "punched needle?" work. Love the pillow you did by the way.
Would you consider doing a tutorial on this craft sometime?
Thanks,
Desi

Hi Debbie. Thanks for visiting this morning. It will probably come as no big surprise that your recent posts were part of the inspiration for my giveaway. Hope you enter and boast a bit about your awesome eggs.

Colors and design turned out really well. Beautiful piece!

Moki is a cutie. One of mine likes to burrow under the rug, too. These crazy little animals really brighten our days, don't they?
