One of the most fun parts of bunny making is the matching up of fabrics & cardis, colours and textures. Don't these four little cardi's look sweet? Like coloured lollies or tiny baby clothes all in a row. Mum has just given me these four and is working on a black one, in moss stitch, for another bunny order. Isn't she clever?
I'm liking this burnt yellow colour and love the way it looks with this vintage sheet/laundry bag.
I was going to go with a more subdued orange for this bunny girl...
but instead I've chosen to use this cotton shirt found at the MS Opshop.
This is how she turned out. She just needs her ears sewn on and she's ready to head off to her new home.
And then there is this purpley paisley pattern to match this little purple cardi, not sure yet but I am fond of this vintage sheet, I've used it for a few things now. Talking of vintage sheets I'm so excited about the Australian Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Swap 2010! Have you signed up for it? What a great way to share some vintage sheet love.
I've been a bit sick this week but I think I'm slowly getting better. Well enough anyway to make a pre-birthday cake with Rosie. Her birthday isn't until August but she felt the need to make a 'practice' cake...and who was I to disagree?? It's the yummiest recipe, from Frankie's Afternoon Tea. If you would like the recipe just email, it's so easy, no wonder it's called the All Together Cake!
Besides cakes and bunnies I have been finishing off my little gifts for my giveaway, sorry to the winners that it has taken me a few weeks to get them made. Life sometimes gets in the way! Hopefully they will all be posted off tomorrow and I will then get onto some more bunny orders, nutting out another idea for things on a string, and oh, making a softie penguin! Should be fun. Hope you are having a happy, well & creative day...lets pop over to Kirsty's and see what inspiration we can find. I'll just put the kettle on....see you soon xo
