Scarlet Calliope Easter Bunny 2

Hello Crafters!

I have to tell you about one of my favorite magazines. Mollie Makes is one of my most adored resources because it’s filled with wonderful and inspiring pictures of people and projects from the worlds of making, thrifting, collecting and crafting.

Mollie Makes Issue 25

All of my dearest pastimes are together in one beautiful publication from the UK!

The most recent issue, No 25, of Mollie Makes has an adorable and easy pattern to make plushie bunnies. My poor sewing machine has been sitting on the craft table, lonely and neglected, so I made this cute Easter Bunny and gave my sewing machine some love.

I embroidered her sweet face and gave her a heart shaped nose. Bunny needed a quick and easy basket to sit in, so I stitched one up for her out of felt.

It’s just not Easter without an alluring Easter bonnet, so I used some pretty Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations. This color is called “Oh Darling” and isn’t that the perfect name? It gives my whimsical lil bunny a wisp of shabby chic style. I added a foof of tulle, a rhinestone and a ring of pearls to a paper flower from Prima and she’s all ready for the Easter Parade!

I adore fuzzy yellow chicks so they had to find a place nuzzled in with my sweet Easter bunny. The eggs in the white basket remind me of one of my favorite candies, Cadbury Mini Eggs. I’ve been able to get through Easter season (so far) without eating more than one lil bag of these delicious chocolates and I’m patting myself on the back for that!

Thank you for joining me here on Scarlet Calliope and please leave some love in the comments!  Come back for my next update to read all about my adventures at Glitterfest. My niece and nephew were visiting from Prescott, AZ, so I’m a little behind in my blogging, but they were soooo worth it!
