I just can't help myself. There are SO many cute little softies and eggs to make for Easter that I can't quit. I'm snowed in, the bathrooms are clean, the floor is swept and there is no reason to go outside until it's time to gather the eggs, so.....I sew! Too bad I don't have about 10 more grandchildren so I have an excuse to keep sewing and stitching! Perhaps I'll stash a few for gifts. You can find the embroidered bunny softie pattern at Wee Wonderfuls. I gave my bunny softie a little fabric dress and a corsage.
This sweet bunny was supposed to be a cashmere bunny, but all I had to work with was a brown minky fabric. I just love how he turned out! And he's soooooo soft and loveable. This was REALLY easy. He looks three dimensional, but he's not. Check out Betz White's tutorial here. I added a bit of interfacing to the bunny's ears to get them to stand up, but you can leave them without for a floppy-eared bun.
