Breeding like rabbits!!

It must be that Easter is on its way that my new makes seem to be rabbits! This little bunny is from a magazine pattern.  As soon as I saw it, I just had to give it a go.  I successfully made and stuffed the body, crocheted a little jumper and made the cute little dress. Another first for me 🙂 I’ve never made ‘clothes’ for anything. The design and pattern was so much more simple than I had first thought. 

I love it! I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it though…

Bunny take two!

I’m so much more pleased with my second attempt at the bunny. Having used my experience of making the first one, I knew where I had gone wrong and changed things slightly, I added an embroidered heart to the paw pad And changed the bow. I’m quite pleased with this one… Don’t know what I’m going to do with them yet! They may well end up as gifts for Easter or find themselves in my stash!

Easter bunny

Oh, it has been so long since I have made anything! 

I had lots of lovely sewing items for Xmas, cutting mat, new scissors, sewing box, rotary cutter etc. it seems to have been the kiss of death for my sewing days! …..until tonight, when I took myself away and had some time in my sewing room. After flicking through my magazines for inspiration, I came across this cute bunny pattern. 

overall, it has turned out ok, but my lack of experience leaves a few glitches. Like how to sew the body parts together without seeing the stitches. 

In general it isn’t too bad I suppose, but now I need inspiration for something else…back to my books…
