Bleu-bell Bunny with Therm O Web

Hiya Sweeties! So I had mentioned on Monday that I was ready for spring and flowers and bunnies, and that’s just what I’ve got for you today. Silly spring folk bunnies that I made using some of the new 2016 iCraft Deco Foil colors from Therm O Web.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil BleuBunniesThese little sillies are one of my own patterns, made with some of my most favorite fabrics. Fabulous black denim from Indygo Junction, and adorable patterned fabric from the Hello, World collection by Cori Dantini for Blend Fabrics.

Look at those little faces. Colorful stacked buttons and lots of hand-stitching. And check out the shabby foiled noses and cheeks, made with the new Lilac and Spring Green 2016 deco foil colors.

Crossroads Denim Bunny with Therm O Web & Indygo Junction

Crossroads Denim Tour
Hello, hello! Happy Friday, Friends! This week, I’ve been sharing lots of Easter projects here on the blog. So I thought I would round out the week with yet another fun Easter share. This time, a little fabric project I made for the Therm O Web blog.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb IndygoDenimBunny

This week we are excited to be hopping with our friends at Indygo Junction, sharing projects featuring Therm O Web sewing and adhesive products along with the gorgeous denims from the Crossroads Denim collection by Amy Barickman.

I am a huge lover of rag dolls, and since spring has finally arrived, I decided now was the perfect time to make a bunny doll using the beautiful denim fabrics from the Crossroads collection.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb IndygoDenimBunny3

I love rag dolls, as there is really no need to worry about patterns or making sure everything is perfect. In my opinion, the more “raggedy” and homemade they look, the better, which works out just fine for me.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb IndygoDenimBunny2I pulled out lots of my favorite bits of hoarded trims to dress up my bunny, and even added a few vintage buckles and findings from my grandmother’s sewing kit. And since Therm O Web now has this amazing line of Deco foils, I added a bit of that, too, to create my own unique custom fabric design. So easy, and so fun! I’ve got a complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

And by the way… did you all know that March is National Craft & Quilt month? Some of your favorite companies have gathered together to celebrate with tons of amazing prize giveaways, including a special bundle of Therm O Web Deco Foils. This week is GRAND PRIZE WEEK! Be sure to stop by the blog to learn more!

Easter Elements with Sizzix

 

Audrey Pettit Sizzix EasterElementsPillow

Hi Sweeties! I’m back today with another fun fabric Easter bunny project to share with you. This time, a little hand-stitched pillow tuck I made for the Sizzix blog using the adorable Easter Elements die by Tim Holtz.

Audrey Pettit Sizzix EasterElementsPillow2

For an instant gratification girl like me, these little pillows are the perfect project because they are so quick and easy to make. Especially with the help of my Sizzix dies, which cut through felt and fabric just as easily as they cut through paper. Just cut, then hand-stitch to a small scrap of plain muslin or linen.

Audrey Pettit Sizzix EasterElementsPillow3

The bottom of the scrap of muslin had a fun frayed edge, so I spritzed it with a bit of green spray ink and turned it up for an extra layer of grass. Spritzed the rest of the fabric with blue spray ink for the sky. I added some simple green stitches for a grassy border, and then just winged a single pretty wildflower. Added a backing of matching brown felt and a stamped kraft tag. Easy Peasy, and cute, too… my favorite kind of project!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Easter Treats with Therm O Web

AudreyPettit Thermoweb EasterBunnyTreats

Hi Sweeties! I’m sneaking back in today with a surprise extra post. I don’t want to let Easter week slip by without sharing my new Easter projects with you. You all know I can’t just let a holiday pass by! So I hope you don’t mind if we have a busy week here on the blog. I’ve got lots of fun little bunny rabbits to show, starting with these softie felt pocket pouches I made for Easter Treats Week on the Therm O Web blog.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb EasterBunnyTreats2These cute little felt pockets are the perfect size for holding some special holiday candy treats or small gifts. Or how cute would these be as a table setting on your Easter table with a napkin and silverware tucked up inside? I’m thinking the soft felt would make this a great jewelry pouch, too. And being made from fabric, these little pockets are completely re-usable. So many ideas.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb EasterBunnyTreats3

Of course my two sweeties are awfully partial to sweets, so candy tied up in a cello bag with a big bow for me.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb EasterBunnyTreats4I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with another fun Easter bunny project using Sizzix dies. Hope to see you all then!

Just a Note with Prickley Pear

Hiya Sweetie Peas! Happy Friday and Happy Spring to you! Goodness, how wonderful it is to say that. I’m just hoping Old Man Winter is listening, and will take a cue now, and go away.

AudreyPettit PPRS JustaNoteCardToday I’m back with another guest designer project for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. This time, a little note-card in neutrals that features one of my most favorite Prickley Pear red rubber images, Dandelion Bunch.

AudreyPettit PPRS JustaNoteCard2
I am quite taken with the natural “wildflower” look to this Dandelion Bunch image, and tried to give my card design a natural vibe to go along. So lots of layers of neutral cardstock here, in grey, kraft, and mustard yellow. I know what you’re thinking……It’s not often I sport a cardstock-only design. I think we just might need to alert the presses…

AudreyPettit PPRS JustaNoteCard3

The image was stamped onto watercolor paper using a “faux” water-color technique. The simple sentiment tag was made from scrap water color paper and the beautiful script Just a Note red rubber image. Final step was adding a kraft paper butterfly die cut using the Mini Butterflies die set. I’ve got the full step-by-steps up on the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp blog, if you’d like to learn more.

So now that spring is officially here, I’m thinking it’s time to put away all my snowmen and break out my spring decor. Thankfully, I already have several new spring bunnies to add to my collection this year, including my new paper mache buddy from this week. I thought some of you might get a chuckle to see how she turned out. I don’t think paper mache is quite my medium.

What I wanted was this. But that’s not quite what I got.

An Easter Table with Therm O Web

Hi everyone! Happy Friday and happy Easter to you! Do you all have big plans for the holiday? Spending time with friends and family? I have managed to come down with a cold, just in time for Easter weekend. So my plans of spending a quiet holiday at home have now expanded to spending a quiet holiday at home in my pajamas. 🙂

AudreyPettitThermOWebEasterSettings

There’s not a lot of time left for preparations, but it’s not too late to set an adorable bunny table for your Easter gathering. I’ve come up with some last-minute table setting ideas that are super quick and easy to make, and are kid-friendly, too. And I think these guys are sure to bring a smile.

AudreyPettitThermOWebEasterSettings3

I kinda get a kick out of these cutie pie bunny napkin rings. I think they would work in any color, in solid cardstock or patterned paper, all the same, or mix-and-match, like mine. The band is a simple 1″ x 6″ strip of paper, with a bit extra for the ears. Perfect project for using up some of those paper scraps we all tend to collect.

AudreyPettitThermOWebEasterSettings4

I used my Epiphany Crafts tools to help make the noses, but simple paper or button noses would work, too. Just use whatever you have on hand.

AudreyPettitThermOWebEasterSettings5

For the treat bags, it’s more of the same. A bit of paper, string, and a button nose. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
