More Bunnies and Finished in Floral

Well, today is my nephew’s birthday.  He’s now four years old.  We had a small celebration with a cake his mother lovingly baked covered with cranberry sauce, his favorite.  His gifts were a puzzle from his sister, a “really cool” yo-yo from his grandma, a toy tool set from his mother, and…PICT0010

…this from me.  A cute handmade stuff rabbit.  He seems to really like rabbits and bunnies so he loved this.  The shape of the body is quite unusual for bunnies as well as the face.  I tried my hand with some soft sculpture there, I could use more practice.  Anyway, he loves it and that’s all that matters.  He named it Longears, it’s a reference from a TV show on Qubo called Gofrette.

After finishing the rabbit, I managed to finish the other projects from my list.  Including these simple wrist cuffs made from two kinds of lace, some bows, and elastic.

Of course I finished my Easter dress.  It took several days to finish because of all the trouble I had with the bodice.  I also had trouble finding the right floral print material, nothing looked quite right.  I ended up using a couple of vintage pillow cases I found in a thrift store for 50 cents.  They worked perfectly for the bodice and overskirt.  The rest of the dress is made with some pink cotton I had leftover which I originally bought at a rummage sale.  So my new dress is pretty and green.
