Embroidering Again

Wow!  I haven't been here in such a long time.  I make things, they just haven't made it to the blog.
It's time for Easter Bunnies again.  Today I cut out 6 boys and 8 girls.  2 of them are already spoken for, but the rest will be going to my Etsy shop.
These are the few left over from last year.  The white chocolate girl sold today and I'll take her to the Post Office tomorrow.  I've had the chocolate mold for decades, a present from my Mom one Easter.  I made the pattern for the wool bunnies from the shape of this mold.
Chocolate colored wool isn't as easy to find as you might think.  This all wool sweater will make many bunnies.  I was gratified to discover that people prefer dark to white chocolate when it comes to stuffed bunnies.
The backs are all soft Easter colors and the fronts will get embroidery.  Girls face left and boys face right.  This makes it easy for the girls to sneak a kiss!  Ha!


  1. I love your bunnies, they are so perfect for this time of year! Bethx (thelinencat)

    1. Thanks Beth! I'm hoping they'll all be done tonight and I can list them in my shop tomorrow. Are you making any of your tweed bunny purses for Easter?
