I’m apparently a slower worker than many of you I’m reading — not much seems to happen in just 1-hour-a-day of sewing! I’m working on a dress for the Kids Clothes Week Challenge, but I need a different color thread for some top-stitching so I am stalled out for a moment.
Hopefully, a better update soon!
But, in other news, I made my girls more bunnies for Easter this year! (My 1st real blog post was also about Easter bunnies I made the girls!) Please meet my Mooshy Belly Bunnies:
Hee, both girls have the same fly-away hair!
Now, these bunnies are a little sad — they still don’t have tails. Oops. Maybe when I go out and buy some thread for the dress I’ll also buy some pompoms for their tails.
They were a little scary for me because I don’t do embroidery. Luckily it wasn’t as bad as I feared, and just maybe I’ll now do some of the dolls I’ve been pining after but fearing because of their embroidered faces.
You can make your own too — it’s a free tutorial/pattern found here. The only complaint I’ve heard about the pattern is that the bunnies are really small. I personally, though, love their size — so easy to carry along!
And the girls enjoyed the bunnies thoroughly on Easter Sunday. They’ve gotten a little lost since then, but I was thrilled with all the hugs and cuddles they got that one day while they carried the bunnies with them everywhere.
Oh, and the pink & white striped fabric is from some pajamas the girls wore as babies. So fun to see it in use again! I have a great picture of Elena in these pajamas, but it’s on the other computer. Maybe I’ll dig it up for ya soon.
And a couple more Easter snapshots:
A good reason to have 2 kids: the older one can push the little one around, in a good way:
