Prim bunny, my version
Since I've been admiring all the cute prim bunnies that abound on the internet I decided to attempt one of my own. First, I needed a pattern but I'm no artist so I folded some paper in half and cut out the shape that I wanted (#1). Then I drew it out on muslin and sewed two pieces together following the line that I drew (#2) leaving the bottom open for stuffing and turning right side out. Before proceeding any further I aged the bunny (#3) with a mixture made up of strong coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon - ummmm, smells delicious. Once that dried, I embroidered the eyes with French knots and the mouth in stem stitch, stuffed her, and added a jute ribbon. Oh yes, I added a bit of blush to her ears and cheeks, which is how I know she's a lady. Now I have a prim bunny (#4) to add to my spring basket!
