Even though we’ve still got patches of snow on the back deck, I am ready for something a bit warmer. For longer days and sunshine and flowers. So when Therm O Web sent me a beautiful stack of fabrics from Blend, our product partners on the Therm O Web blog this week, I couldn’t help but think ahead to spring. And what says spring more than a big ol’ bunch o’ bunnies?
As many of you know by now, I am always most happy when I get the chance to play with a wee bit of stitchery. These bunnies have been on my wish list for quite some time. I think these little cuties will add a festive touch to my home decor this spring, and are super easy to put together thanks to the help of Therm O Web’s fabulous iron-on adhesive. I used a variety of fun fabric patterns from the Mariposa collection by designer Shell Rummel for my rabbit friends and was inspired by this adorable tutorial I found online.
I really love the mixture of patterns and colors here. Really perfect for spring. I paired the pretty pastel prints with snippets of hand-dyed wool felt for the faces and ears. Hand stitched the noses and added old buttons for the eyes. The neckties are made from long strips of torn fabric. I really like the rough edges. I even used more torn strips to create some crazy rabbit tails.
I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial, including the supply list, photos, and pattern, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
