An Explosion of Bunnies



When I saw Ikat Bag's sweet bunny tutorial on Sew Mama Sew last year, I pinned it immediately, knowing I wanted to make a few for the little people I love. I managed to complete the bunnies themselves, 7 of them, during spring break. Cute, cute, cute. 
 

Bunnies do get tired, though, and last night (when I should have been marking papers) I made little sleeping bags for the bunnies. Even cuter! Why 7 bunnies you might ask? 

I thought that it would be more fun for the little girls to have a pair of bunnies - so the bunnies could go hopping around together. Added play value. For the little Mister F I made just one bunny since he's not into the concept of friends yet. And then there were two leftover - for Nana! I'll keep them here for play time when the grands visit.
 

"Hey, Nana," say the bunnies. "When we wake up from our naps, we get hungry!" 

Tonight's plan is to make carrots in little bags, and possibly skirts for the girls' bunnies. Nothing like the last minute for productivity!

Oh we love them! And that last minute productivity is my favourite (even tho' I oft lament why I didn't think if things sooner, but perhaps that's that way creativity works...)

Your grands will love them....

Hi, what a great idea for the grandgirlies to have TWO! I had never thought like that, but I am seeing the error of my ways. Those bunnies are adorable. I must check into the tutorial. I've been going sideways with projects rather than forward myself. What is up with that?! It must be some sort of a disorder. LOL!

Too cute!
My daughter was talking to my 2yo granddaughter about a family Easter Egg Hunt we'll be going to, and so I asked what Harriet thought the Easter Bunny might bring her. She thought a bit and then a big, big smile, and Carrots! (that's a health-conscious bunny! ;-)

Oh How Cute! You know how it is! You leave those bunnies alone and they just start multiplying....lol xo Diana

podso said...

so cute! I could see that little project going on and on. :-) I'm glad you're keeping two for yourself. Definitely better than grading papers! Your little ones will be thrilled!

Oh my gosh Lorrie, those bunnies are irrestiible! Now I want to make some. I've made sleeping bags for dolls and even for The Incredible Hulk that my sons used to play with. I must go look up the tutorial on making those bunnies. Too, too cute!
