*(: Make sure to read all the way to the end, I have a little Give-Away :)!*
This month over at Imaginisce the challenge is to "Piece it together". I was ECSTATIC with JOY! I have ALWAYS LOVED to do paper piecing! It is SO MUCH FUN! Well, for me it is, I know a LOT of people don't have the patience for it. But me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
With Easter just a little over a week away, I decided that I would make an Easter Bunny. I searched all over trying to find just the right Bunny. I searched Google for Easter Bunny Clip Art and Color pages. I just could NOT find the ONE that made me happy! I found bodies, hands, faces and ears that I liked, but not ALL together. So, I decided since I was "piecing" it, I would take the parts from each one that I liked and then make my own Bunny, so that's what I did. Each little piece of my bunny is cut out BY HAND, then assembled.
I knew I needed to put my Bunny on something, and even though I still have some pics of last Easter that I could scrap, I thought I would make my Grandkids something "SPECIAL" this year. So this is my pieced Bunny on an Explosion purse that I will give to my oldest granddaughter. Of course, I will HAVE to make something for the other 3, but I am just THRILLED how my Lil' Bunny turned out.
Here is a close-up of my Bunny:
Here is what the little purse looks like when opened AND it will be FULL of Candy, come Easter!:
Of course to hold it closed, I used some Velcro. I just couldn't resist positioning my Velcro to make it look like the Bunny's tail! LOL!
EVERYTHING except the Velcro and Ribbon Handle are from Imaginisce For Peep's Sake Collection, which I just LOVE!! I also used some distress ink. So far, I have made 7 of these Lil' Bunnies. 4 for my Grandkids, 2 are on cards that are already postal and guess what?! I have this little guy left over.
Would you like to have him? Just leave me a comment and let me know, if he was yours what would you put him on? I will choose a winner using Random.org on Wednesday Morning, April 20th.
Just to PROVE how much I LOVE Paper Piecing, here are some things that I have made and GIVEN AWAY:
I hope you play along this month over at Imaginisce! Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look!
