sewn bunnies

March 26, 2012 § 2 Comments

This week we’ve been busy sewing adorably abstract little bunnies (our own homage to the Ugly Doll craze) for Bella to “sell” at her upcoming school Marketplace. I loved the way they turned out and the fact that this was a really simple project that my beginning sewer could definitely be successful with. We made a template of our bunny shape out of paper and traced it onto a cute assortment of Spring fabrics (folded in half so we could trace and cut both sides of the bunny at once). Then we sewed them together inside out on the machine, leaving a little opening at the bottom. After turning the bunny right-side out, stuffing and hand-sewing closed, we added button eyes. I have to say that choosing the fun fabric and button combos was my favorite part. I collect buttons so we had a lot to choose from. Our funny little bunnies are so cute that we are sad to part with them this week. “That’s OK,” said Bella, “we can always make more!”
