Isn’t he cute! Although I shouldn’t say so really. My mum would have said I was a dreadful show-off, admiring your own work was definitely not the done thing in our house! But I do think he is cute. Who would guess that he’s created from a few fabric samples from the very nice interiors shop in Kingsbridge, together with the leg off an old pair of cord trousers? That’s one of the things I enjoy about applique – searching out and combining different fabrics to incorporate into my creations.
The carrots are also fabric samples, his muzzle is a scrap of old blanket and the foliage is simply back stitch. I added two little ladybirds for fun – you can just see one in this picture. I incorporated my panel into a really strong tote bag with loads of pockets to take to my stall at the Nostalgic Mix Fair next month.
And the pattern to make a bunny bag of your own is in my Etsy Shop. You can still use the code BLOGREADER2 for 15% off for a while longer. (Oh, and just to say this pattern won’t be in the magazine).
Meanwhile I hope my bunny finds someone nice to take him home next month!
