I have loved miniatures for as long as I can remember. Little, tiny things make my heart sing. Smalls that will fit in a child's tiny hand. Wee things that are so small they take the Hubble telescope to just stitch together. I know that my eyes are getting older. Not seeing things that I know are there. Blurring words on pages. But....I push forward. Loving my wee, little, tiny, small things. Eye doctor (who happens to be my neighbor) in my future, but for now a quick rub and a hard blink are all I need to make things right.
Today I have a wee little small tiny bunny for you to make. He is called a Pocket Bunny, because he can fit right into your pocket.
I used him to fill my hearts that I made for Debby's (Cozy Blanket) Heart Swap.
You can enlarge his pattern if you want too, but he will not be wee anymore.
It's funny....I used the same setting on my camera to take the two above photos and look how much lighter this photo is. I think it must be the back ground.
Love the wee, little basket.
Easter/Spring stuff is starting to show up.
Cut out two bodies & two ears. The pattern for the arms and legs is the same- so cut out four, two arms and two legs. A french knot for each eye and Y stitch for the nose. As you blanket stitch around the body add legs, arms and ears. Add blush to the cheeks and ears. You can add the heart if you want too. Just glue on. One thing that I forgot to add on my swap bunnies was a tiny pom pom tail.
FYI: In case you wondered how I got him to stand upright. I tried coercion via jelly beans no luck.....but sticking a pin in his neck did the trick.
Did you wonder how I got little pink chickie to stand up? She is not an easy one either. Top shelf behind word "bunny".
A pin to her.....ahem......bottom does the trick. Not pretty but it works.
See. This is her profile.
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. It is finally sunny here and in the 60s again.
