Currently we have two rabbits residing in our garden. One is very large and plump. The other is quite smaller and less afraid of us. Scout is quite oblivious to them and they tend to startle her more than she does them.
Today's silly post is about bunnies. I finished another bunny block for my calendar quilt.
Here are some of my favorites:
Not sure why, but this pattern for a bunny pillow creeps me out. It's the smile of the rabbit--as if there is something not quite right going on in the animal's mind. It somewhat reminds me of the Monty Python movies that my Dad and brothers loved to watch (there was one killer rabbit in one of the movies).
Fortunately, bad bunnies are not the norm. Most bunnies appear adorable like this one that I found on pinterest:
Now if you have a sweet child in your life, you may want to celebrate spring by making them a pillow (free pattern and tutorial) and stuffed carrots. Beth shared that she is going to be doing this with her granddaughter and you can see this tutorial as well as many others here at Shabby Fabrics.
Do you like Peeps? They are made right here in the Lehigh Valley where I live. It's mandatory to like them if you grew up here. We are so crazy about Peeps that on New Year's Eve, we don't drop a ball, we drop a Peep! See here. When my great-niece finally arrives (in May), I'll be more inclined to make her a stuffed peep and there are lots of free patterns on line.
