A Bunny & A Basket & a Warrior Quilt
Here is what ‘Nana’ has completed for Springtime Family visit gifts.
That Bunny took just A LOT of work! After stitching the nose twice, I decided that was just her personality! Such work – even a combo of pellets and stuffing. My heart goes out to the sewers in factories who toil daily to create these. I know – the pattern? Here it is at this link…
She made a LITTER of these adorable bunnies. Not this NaNa! PLUS carrots, no less – lots of carrots. Alas, my 8 month old would just eat them – NOT a good idea.
I will add that I enlarged the pattern – quite a bit! I certainly wouldn’t want to make one any smaller than I managed. The directions were very, very good. Even through ‘the big move’ last year, I brought along this velour and fur from garments made for my daughter and grandson years and years and years ago. She won’t remember, but I do – and that makes this bunny even more special. I promise – pictures with the most beautiful granddaughter in the world will be coming.
The basket – well, I schlopped (my term for sewing by the seat of your pants) it together from a picture I found online. That’s PelTex inside it to make it stand up like that.
For 12 Year Old Grandson?
He and I will be making a BIG Book Tote Bag for his use next year going to the Library often in his home schooling. Si
