Bunny And Me!

Hello lovely people!

This project has taken some time to create and now it has sparked off another plan for craft club!  Another post will follow! :)

I had an old wooden sewing box that was a bit broken and I saved some of the wooden drawers.  I wasn't sure what to do with them so they have lain in the shed for a few months.  I was thinking of making some weird creatures and displaying them in frames when I remembered I had some drawers.  So I fished them out and painted it up.

I was going to make weird creatures but ended up making a simple pattern for bunnies.  I wanted them to be a bit scruffy so I used lots of random stitching to hold the edges together and stuffed them.

I stitched the face first and found it hard to stitch through the weave as it kept moving around.  Once it was all stitched I added some bows and a wee tutu.  After this I decided to give it some arms and legs in different fabric.

After making this bunny I decided she needed a friend.  So I made a smaller pattern and created another bunny.

This bunny is just made from printed cotton and had been decorated with some cute vintage buttons and a small paper rose.

Once the paint had dried I glue gunned a piece of fabric onto the back and used this envelope I had made a while ago as my background.

I then placed my bunnies in and worked out how I wanted them to sit.  It was looking a bit bare so I made up a button tower to fill some space.

Once I had done this I made some tiny bunting and glued this in place as well.  So here is the finished box!

And as I have said this has given me a great idea for craft club!  And I think the children would enjoy making something similar :)
