Not-So-Sweet Bunnies

Those two are not-so-sweet bunnies. They are not the usual gentle bunnies we see around Easter time. But they are the kind my sons like.

I crocheted the bodies with cotton yarn. I followed the tutorial generously written by Kristi. I filled the bunnies with old bed sheets that I cut into 1″ stripes. The appliqués are made of old t-shirt fabric.

The pink t-shirt was the only suitable pink fabric I had on hand and I had some difficulties stitching it on the crocheted cotton yarn. I am sure you noticed that the eyes of the scared-looking rabbid are far from perfect. But I think they look good enough. Making them was a lot of fun. With my sons frequently checking on the progress…

Happy Easter!

My Bunnies and Kitties now have a scalloped edge made of soft baby yarn. And tails. The next step will give them faces. And maybe some more decorations involving lace, ribbons and beads.

Bunnies and kitties - sewing step

I found the patterns for these bunnies and kitties in an old magazine: Le Idee di Susanna, Febbraio 1998. I cut the forms into leftover fabrics and even into old clothes. Cotton, polyester, corduroy. Flowers and plaids.

The bunnies are 5 1/4″ tall and the kitties are 3 1/2″ tall. Cutting, sewing and filling is only the first step. They need embellishment and certainly physical details in form of eyes, noses and moustaches. More to come!

Not a Sweet Bunny… Now There Are Two Bunnies

Not a sweet bunny... Now there are two bunnies - France NadeauOne bunny was not enough for my two sons. So I made two bunnies. The bodies and arms are done. There are only two more ears to crochet. Then I will start the less funny but absolutely necessary task of assembling the body parts. And, of course, adding some pink and a facial expression.
