My friend Deb (of Sprouting Jube Jube) had so much success selling handmade elves for Christmas (click! to see) that we thought a special handmade easter bunny would be a great follow-up. My kids adored the elf (the little one even cried when we put him away), and I'm hoping this bunny will be something special that they appreciate for years to come.
Using the rag doll dies from Clear and Simple Stamps, Deb sewed a hairless girl doll. That sounds weird, but I'm hoping you get it. The genius is in the design of the floppy ears (they really are floppy. I stuck a straight-pin behind each ear to stand them up for the photo-shoot, but something about a child dragging around a floppy-eared stuffed bunny just warms the heart. I felt like I needed to clarify that point, hee hee.)
The sweet little face came together using some of the pieces from *this* CSS die set. I love that pink bunny nose.
And painted-on blushy cheeks. eeep. they add so much character.
If you'd like to order a sweet handmade bunny keepsake from Deb, click over to her facebook page *here* and send her a private message. She will be making a boy's version in the next few days too!
