I had big plans this year making lots of decoration for Christmas, but alas…it didn’t happen. Mainly because the Texas warm weather didn’t exactly help with developing a Christmas spirit. And now that it’s finally cold and I’m in the spirit, Christmas is over and it’s already 2013!
But I did make this reindeer. Giraffe decided to take a winter nap in the mean time.
I decided to make an easy Easter bunny this year.
I think it looks sweet, but not very Easter-like. Oh well :) New chances next year.
I think the Bunny needs to be bigger than the carrots, for sure ;).
Tutorial:Hoppy by Larkcrafts.com Material: I didn’t have a scarf to repurpose, but I used leftover fabric from a dress that was made into a skirt, last year by friends :) For the ears I used felt, and some wool for the pom pom. Time needed: Without embroidering the face and making the pom pom, this project really doesn’t take long to complete. Unless your name is Nienke and you leave it, completely stuffed and all, laying around for weeks before you decide to sew up the opening ;).
I regret sewing the right side of the face into the seam allowance :-/ But I’d already notched it, so there was no way back.
Hoppy was joined yesterday by these 2 adorable rabbits I found at Hancock Fabrics :)
Dutchie living in Texas and loving it! I started sewing in 2011, and knitting and crocheting late 2012. I need to start sewing clothes for myself, because at 5'10" all those cute dresses in stores are just uncomfortably short and look ridiculous. I blog about stuff I make, but very infrequently.
My Dutch name is best pronounced [neenka], but neenkster is my nickname given to me in grad school :).
