Bunnies are so freakin cute!! Just not as cute as kittens. Anyhoo, i have a TON of old kids clothes that i cut up sitting in a ginormous pile in my living room. And Katie and Patsy were over playing with the kids, so i decided to have a ‘sewing day’.
I found this pattern online: http://blog.betzwhite.com/2007/03/cashmere-bunny-tutorial.html and thought ‘what a cute EASY pattern’. Well, i was right about the cute part. And i’m sure the easy part works for normal people, but not me! Now, i know how to use the sewing machine, and i know how to cut out the pieces. But somewhere between turning the machine on and cutting off the ‘finished product’, i tend to make unrecognizable ‘bunnies’!!
So, here are the two bunnies that were made with the link as a ‘guide’:
Mine is the ‘dotted’ one, i had sewn the ears on inside out, so i had to ‘redo’ that particular area. The blue one is Katie’s, and thank god she thought her’s was adorable!!
So after that episode, i decided to just keep going with my ‘unique’ sewing ability. I found a green and white checkered shirt that Madaleine never wears and paired that with stripy green stretchy pants that tasha outgrew. This time i didn’t use a pattern, i just folded the shirt and pants inside out and sewed ear/body shapes. I like this one cause, let’s face it, bunnies are adorable!!
For this one i used the huge google eyes and since i had already sewn it closed, i went with a glued on heart shaped felt mouth. I was gonna embroider a face on it, but i didn’t. Here is what bunny does when you sneak up on her:
Cute, right?!!! When it was getting dark and the two girls had to go home, Patsy found one of the wee wonderful bunnies i had made a while back and was all “Oooooh, Mrs. Nathalie, can you make me one??!!!” And i’m all, “sure, hon, i’ll make one tonight for you”.
Oh, i’ll make one alright, but i am soooooooo leaving that circle on the bottom off!!! I have enough issues with sewing!!!
