Bunnies and Bears Everywhere!

Spring fever must've hit me, because I've been busy sewing away on bunnies and bears!  My whole table was covered with them!  I just listed them on Etsy, and plan to work on patterns for three of them over the weekend.  Here they are:

Here are Benny Bear and Gracie.  These two were so much fun to sew!  I first discovered plush felt for my snowmen.  Who knew making these guys would be so much fun with this versatile fabric?!  These guys will be patterns.

This sweet girl is Betsy Bunny.  She's also made from plush felt, and I just love how her dress turned out!  The collar is made from the corner of a vintage cloth tea napkin.  I don't know if I will be able to part with Betsy!  She'll also be a new pattern.

Meet Barnaby!  Half the fun of creating these critters is coming up with names for them!  He just looked like a Barnaby to me!  He is also made from plush felt that has been aged and antiqued. He's the final pattern I plan to make this weekend.

Now, these are the kind of chocolate bunnies you can never have too many of!  Guaranteed to be calorie-free! :)  These little cuties are stitched from my Mister Bun E. Rabbit pattern that is now 10 years old!  I used a different fabric (the original, shown below, was stitched from terry cloth).  

....and last, I made a cream colored rabbit (white chocolate bunny?!) also using my Mr. Bun E. Rabbit pattern.  

Easter will be here before you know it!  I guess it's time to take my snowmen and winter stuff down!  It's March!

Primitive blessings,

Hello Laurie,
You have been busy! Your new bears and rabbits are wonderful and great minds think alike. I made some "no calorie" chocolate rabbit arrangements too!
Hope you are having a great first day of March.

Hi Sheila!
I love your arrangement! Very cute! We both must be ready for spring! It does sound a lot closer now that it's March!

These are all so sweet! I just asked you a question in Etsy on a doll pattern! Love your pretty designs! Hugs, Diane

Thanks, Diane! All of my e-patterns will print out to actual size on a standard 8.5 x 11 paper. You'll notice some of my patterns are only listed as mailable patterns. These are the patterns that are larger, and are printed on 11 x 17" paper. I HATE having to enlarge patterns, or tape patterns together, so I make sure you don't have to with my patterns!
