Once upon a time, many years ago, I used to sew clothes for my daughters.  Once they got big, they wanted dresses with "tags" on them like everyone else, so I switched to quilting.  I haven't used my sewing machine for anything other than quilts for...well....more years than I will readily admit to.  (ahem)  But I decided to take a break from quilting and try something a tad different.  So, here is my Easter bunny.  Actually, he will probably go live with the little girl across the street at Easter.  But, it was nice to do a little something different.  I think I'll try making one with some really soft terry fabric.  Which will mean a trip to Joann's.  (I hate when that happens......NOT)

Did you make your own pattern? It looks cuddly.

Make my own pattern?  Now THAT'S funny.  No, I purchased it at Joann's.  It's got a couple of different animals and I may try some different ones, just for fun.  I actually have no use for it (no kiddos here at the house) but the pictures on the pattern looked cute so I thought I'd give it a try.  I'm not super thrilled with it as I think it looks like it was made by a toddler.  But, my actual sewing skills are really rusty.  It was nice, however, to be able to actually start and finish a project in a day.  My quilts take months.

That is very cute. I know you said No kiddos around to give it too but if you had a local hospital around , I am sure that would bring the BIGGEST smile to a kids face.

 

The are some very artistically talented people on LB and you are most certainly one of them. :)

So, I take my little bunny to my local quilt guild meeting and the very first comment I hear is "who ran over the bunny?"  Sigh.  My first thought was "hey, give me a break....it's my first non quilt thing" and then I had to laugh.  It does look like someone ran over the bunny.  LOL

There is always a smart aleck in the bunch. This bunny is very cute, and someone (several someones) will love it.
