Cloth - Quick Project - Bunnies and Bunting
Did you know Easter is next week? I have no idea how that happened and no one consulted me.
I am ashamed to say that until a few days ago I still had up all of my St. Patty's day decorations. I knew there was a reason why I never put up St. Patrick's day decs before. There is no time between Valentine's Day and Easter!
With visitor's coming for the weekend I had to get my keester in gear, take the leprechaun legs down, and get some bunnies up.
Project #1: Spring Bunting
No big whoop here. Fabric + Ribbon = Bunting
Project #2: Spring pictures for my frame gallery in the reading nook.
Project #3: Fabric Bunnies
Instructions for these super cute bunnies along with a pattern can be found from The Long Thread for Etsy.
As you can see I ended up leaving the faces off of mine. I was going for a bit more primitive feel. I may end up putting faces on later...I can't decide. They were originally designed to be used as bowling pins for a children's game but the weighted bottoms (I used beans instead of rice) make for nice stand-up decorations.
They came together really quick with low frustration which is a great quality in a last minute craft project.
Frustration - Low
Make-ability - 100% worth it
You won't be able to make just one...you know bunnies...if you make one you will end up with a bunch of them in the end.
