Do you ever have those projects where you start off really excited about them, get to work on it, and then it fizzles out after a while? Man it happens to me all the time! This is one of those projects. First of all how could you not get excited about this tutorial? I found it over at the purl bee (which if you haven't checked it out, you should. It's such a fantastic blog!)
I started on these with the intention of them being an Easter gift for my niece Josie. That didn't exactly pan out, so I thought I would just send them as a surprise Josie present in my sister's birthday present box in May. If you recall, I think I mentioned in an earlier post that this didn't exactly pan out either. They did eventually get to Josie sometime in July and I hear they are a big hit!
I know I can't do any better than the tutorial over at the purl bee, so I'm just going to direct you there. As for my blog, please just enjoy the pretty pictures :)
I just noticed this! The tutorial took their bunny photos on a green back drop, and
I took mine on my ugly old green chairs - great minds think alike!
I did make some minor changes from the tutorial. I didn't use the recommended spring felt bundle, which I'm sure is just amazing! I have limited selection here, so I just went for run of the mill Hobby Lobby felt squares. I went ahead and picked up all the neon colors.
Also instead of stitching them with white thread, I used colored embroidery thread to match the felt. I was pretty impressed at how closely I got them to match. Go me! I sort of followed the order the tutorial told me to sew them in. I don't actually remember now, but I know I didn't do it exactly the same. I'd say, just do what works for you! Oh and instead of sewing the tail on, I just hot glued it. I was just sick of embroidery thread by then!
Anxiously awaiting their tails
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my bunnies! I did have a great time making them once I set my mind to it. And I think they are just about the most adorable things ever! Don't you?
Off to Josie's house we go!
