Cashmere Sunny Bunny ended up being a surprise tucked into Gracie's bag for camp. I decided helping G cozy up away from home was a more important job for this Sunny Bunny than going to one of the new babes in the family. Here he's hiding in a new bag whipped up from a vintage, cross stitched tray cloth with the new Bunny's Bow pattern stitched to the front; Mother Bunny wears a Liberty apron.
This pattern was so quick to stitch up and it's available by commenting in this blog birthday post. Also enter the blog birthday giveaway on the same post.
EDIT: This pattern and all other patterns are now available by voluntary donation on the patterns page here. Any amount is accepted and appreciated; donations afford me the time to create more patterns and tutorials, thanks!
These bunnies are everywhere in our garden throughout the year but they are crazy brave and silly this time of year. The other day we witnessed two males fighting, looking a lot like a boxing match and a lot of fur was flying.
There are baby bunnies everywhere and even a few of the less common black bunnies; this little guy is probably their daddy.
I've only ever seen black bunnies from the car and at a distance, it's fun to have some in the garden.
So you see, there's a whole lot of bunny inspiration around here. The pattern above, though simple, was meant for an Easter release (Easter 2010) that's how long my quick sketch has been sitting in my very full binder of embroidery drawings. Perhaps ploughing through that binder should be another goal in the coming year.
I'll be back tomorrow with the winners.
