Here comes Peter Cottontail…….hoppin’ down the bunny trail….
This is one of my happiest “finishes” ever! I completed almost all of it when I had a little retreat a few weeks ago. I got this kit about 3 years ago from Connecting Threads…..immediately started it, but never finished it. I hand appliqued the bunnies, so that was the time consuming part. Yes, I admit, I should have just appliqued by machine to speed up the process. But once I started doing them by hand, I didn’t want to stop. If you are a seamstress, I used “needle turn applique, freezer paper method”. If you don’t sew, that will mean nothing to you 🙂
The mouth and whiskers were embroidered with DMC floss, and I opted for quickly sewing on button eyes instead of embroidering even more. Remember, I wanted to FINISH this??? I also took fabric scraps and made 3 Dimensional bows (those were supposed to be appliqued) and I just pinned them on after the project was complete. I quilted by machine around each bunny head, and a rectangle around the edges of the striped material. Lots of quilting options, but in my attempt to actually see this on my table this year, I kept it simple.
