Son is home from school sick today so I am going to make this a quick post.
Don't you just love bunnies? With their cute wiggly noses and long soft ears. Well... I just couldn't wait until Easter to share this cute little guy. He is a trinket box character but could easily become an ornament.
His banner says "Somebunny loves you!". He practiced his letters all day in preparation of making the banner. He did get a few letters backwards, but that's ok, he did it himself!
Cute little pom pom tail. Made the same way that my pom pom birds are made. I used a fork to wind the yarn around instead of my fingers. This makes a much smaller pom with less waste.
I did use the hot glue to glue his stick to the top of the trinket box. This was much quicker than waiting for the white glue to dry. The top of the box was also glittered to look like snow.
Here's a pom pom bird ready to deliver a Valentine.
The tutorial for the pom pom bird is here. If the link doesn't work (blogger issues) it was in the October 25, 2012 post.
The pattern for Somebunny. Please note that I forgot to draw the gusset for the leg. It is the same as all the others. Just use one from one of the other characters. Bunny body is made the same way as the other felty trinket boxes, just add the ears to his head as you stitch. I did use lady makeup blush for his ears, cheeks and the bridge of his nose. His eyes are french knots made from two strands of brown embroidery floss. The floss was also used for his nose.
I hope that you enjoy making this sweet little bunny for somebunny special!
Have a wonderful and crafty day,
and remember if you have any questions on constructing him please don't hesitate to leave a comment,
