Final Handmade Large Bunny Rabbit from In the Hoop Online

Final Handmade Large Bunny Rabbit from In the Hoop Online
Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here.  And as promised, I am back with the final little cutie patootie Bunny that I made following a pattern from Adele at In the Hoop Online.  My blog has been nothing but bunnies and bags lately, teehee.  Anyway, I won't keep you as you've seen 3 of these bunnies already.  Bunny #1 and #2&3.
I did the same faux leather pads on the bunny feet but did the top stitching in white thread so it would pop a wee bit more.  Now, I am very aware that my sewing skills are by no means professional at all, so my top stitching isn't the greatest.  But it certainly confirms the handmade aspect of these bunnies, that's for sure, teehee.  I did add the buttons again to both the arms and legs for added security which I really like.  I did it differently this time though, which I feel worked better.  Instead of waiting until the whole bunny is completely made up to add the buttons, I added them when the stuffing was out of the body and still open at the back.  This meant I was only going through the stuffed leg and empty body which was so much easier for sewing.  And I think it made the limbs sit better too.  Previously, I was weaving the extra long dolls needle through the stuffed leg, then the fully stuffed body and then again through the other side of the opposite leg.  And that, quite honestly was torture.  So from now on, if I am adding buttons for added strength to the limbs, I will add the buttons on when the body is empty.
The fabrics I used were just some random fat quarters that I had in my ever increasing stash.  And of course, I added my little Dicky-bow to this bunny too.  It's a lovely wee finishing touch.  Wouldn't these be adorable with a big easter egg sitting between the legs?  And then maybe add it to a wee wicker basket with some lovely Easter chocolates and then tied up in Cellophane with a big colourful bow.  What a beautiful Easter basket that would be to give to the kiddos.  And once they eat all the chocolate goodies and crash after the sugar high, they have a cute bunny to snuggle in bed with, lol.  
And here is the final bunny, with her older sister.  

Just a heads up.....I need to purge a lot of craft items.  My room is getting ridiculously full again, even after my purge 3 years ago.  And to keep myself accountable, I am writing it here that I WILL be having a big Destash sale very soon.  If I write it on my must happen, teehee.  So look out for a Destashing announcement, coming soon to a blog near you, lol.

That's it from me folks.  Toodles Noodles ......Lee aka Crafty Loops xx
