Make it Monday: Bunnies!


I have been wanting to make some little bunnies to add in my baskets and bowls, so today I tried a couple. The pattern I got the idea from is from a russian site, but it does have a translator on it. The site is called Full Moon: The Edge of the Soul and she shows you the ones she made and a little tutorial, but it is easy enough to figure out and I just drew up my own template and used that. I think it is a great design to have fun with and make with different fabrics and change it to make it your own or custom make it for others.

Another idea that I got from Urban Threads is to make little bunnies and give them as gifts. She makes up little bunnies and leaves them in places like a library shelve, for someone to find. She adds with a tag  on hers with a name and information on the bunny, sounds like fun.

You can find her bunny design and idea under freebies at Urban Threads.

Here are my two bunnies. I had to put the faces on after I made them, so next time I have to remember to do that first, then I can use buttons or beads for eyes. The bunny on the left was made from my old pant material and the one on the right is a felted wool that I found in a thrift store, so great for scrap fabrics too. I couldn't tell how much walnut stain I had on them so the one bunny came out with dark spots.

My favorite of the two bunnies is the wool one. So primlicious looking.

CUTE. I haven't sewn anything (except serging edges of linen) for quite some time. Now I just might consider drawing and hooking some bunnies but I've still got two rugs to finish hooking and 2 to bind...well 1 1/2 to bind since I've started on one.

From Russia, how cool! I love the dark and how it prims them up.
That's such a sweet thing to do for folks. Would cheer up someone's day and inspire them to do the same.

Oh my, I have missed so much! I love brown bunnies and all of these to the current posts are darling! I will have to try some. What type of floss do you use for punching. The B for bunny pillow is perfect colors. I would love to know what color he is punched in!
