since Spring is hopefully just around the corner I wanted to design something that just shouts out springtime and that for me is a little wee baby rabbit. Once I have an idea I tend to sit down and work on it until I am happy with it and it is just right in my eyes and it was the same with this design. I started two days ago and made more than one pattern and I did sew each of the patterns and all that by hand. Even though I have slightly sore finger tips again I do love sewing by hand so much. I do have a sewing machine but I only like to use it for big things like curtains or soft furnishings like pillows. Even when I make king sized quilts I sew them completely by hand and love every moment doing so.
Oops I got side tracked and now back to my new design ... as I said I started 2 days ago and now I am finally finished with it. I love that it has the same cute look like my little cupboard mice. Now I just have to sit down and sew the actual final creation.
It all starts with one little idea and a sketch and then I just have to get it right by trail and error ..
... and if that means making a few or more, then that is what it takes.
I tried out a few different fabrics such as linen, velvet and muslin so far to see which would look the best and I might try a few more even. Once I am completely happy with the little critter I will share the result with you, hopefully in the next day or so. So ... keep 'hopping' by to see if the wee rabbit is ready.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
