Spring Bunny Pillows
I have a couple of wool projects that I want to get out to you before the season is over. These simple bunny pillows only take a couple of hours to stitch, so you will be able to have them done before Easter! They would also make the perfect gift for a neighbor or the person who is hosting Easter dinner. The are wool appliqued onto flannel. The bunnies are then hand stitched with perle cotton.
The first pillow is Buster the Bunny... is sitting pretty…he is shown a little dark in this photo, he looks much better in person and he was the favorite of the staff….
Then the two pillows shown with the same design are called Honey Bunny. I could not make up my mind so I did one on the pretty tan plaid with a natural wool. The other is on a dark grey flannel with a light wool texture. You get a choice between these two options. All these pillows are 18″ finished.
You do remember this right?...Like Father, Like Son Pillow. We can’t leave the girls out! So I used these cute bunnies for the “girl” version of Like Father, Like Son, called Like Mother, Like Daughter You could also add a little bow on the little girl bunny, I did not however…no clothes on animals for me….This pillow finishes at 16″.
All the threads have been listed in the related products as well as pillow forms. We have nice priced on our pillows and I know this because while I was in CA with Dru we had to stop at one of the big box craft stores to get one and they were outrageous, 23 dollars or something…I suppose because of their coupon…I can tell you ours are cheaper even after you would use a coupon..
If you use a zipper in your pillow back you can stop buy pillows or stuffing. You can just change the pillow cover!
I hope all is well with everyone one of you…and none of you have the COVOID-19.
Keep stitching AWAY everyone…I know we did not wish for this virus…but we kind of all wished we could be locked in our sewing rooms for a long time…and now…it’s time to do our thing! It’s fun to see everyone making masks…I think they are great for our own personal protection. I may have to stitch a few up. They may be the new fashion rage this year. Later on I am going to ask everyone to post a pic with their mask on. I know I am trying to make lite about it all and have a good attitude but It is scary…health wise this takes a toll on our mental health…worrying about our family, finances and…hoping it does not last long and we and our country can recover quickly.
stay safe…all for now…LB
