Easter Greetings

Easter Greetings and Fun Sewing-

Two fun little projects to share with you:

Easter Mug Rug  pattern  by The Patchsmith 

I made this sweet  little Easter Egg and Bunny mug rug for my mother.  With The Patchsmith's pattern and  superb directions, it took me less than 2 hours to make up this little holiday gift!  My mom just loved getting the little surprise in the mail.  Next year, I would like the make the Easter Cross Mug Rug

Next,  while I was all in the " Bunny Making Mode" .... and I made up these:

Basket full of Bunnies

Bunny Softy Pattern-          by Melanie  at The Crafty Cupboard  (free pattern!)

Size:      6 " tall   (after reducing the pattern to 75% of original size)

I ended up making 11 little bunnies, to give as little Easter presents, at my Aunt's house.  There will be 5 other ladies there, of all ages. I wanted to have bunnies in  a variety of fabrics, hoping that there will be a bunny that every person will like.  I made two scrappy bunnies ( for me if no one picks them!)

Can you figure out my "bunny boo-boo " ?

Yep..."some bunny" didn't put both fabrics right sides together
 before stitching them up !
He's still cute....  He's just playing it "low volume" on the back side!

I'm off to my sewing room!
