This year for the first time ever we are breaking with tradition (eeek) and are going away for Easter with a group of friends. Traditionally, we spend the weekend with family and on Easter Sunday we all gather at either our house or my parents house and have an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. Although we won't be home, we will still most definitely be having an egg hunt on Easter Sunday and because there are four little girls going, I thought it might be nice to make them a little "Egg Hunting" singlet, similar to one I saw recently in an Etsy shop - and despite searching for it again so I could include the link here, I came up with absolutely nothing. Sorry.
Now, if you cannot sew or do not have a machine, then this little fluffy bunny is just for you. It can be a competely no-sew project if you want it to be and it's perfect for using up your scrap material, which is exactly what I did.
Here's the scoop ...
- Find a bunny template on Google (I am lucky enough to have a Silhouette Cameo machine so I chose a bunny template and cut it out on my machine - I know, cool huh?)
- Trace the bunny onto your fabric.
- Iron on some vliesofix (available from Spotlight) to the wrong side of your fabric.
- Cut out your bunny.
- Peel the vliesofix backing off your bunny.
- Iron him/her onto your singlet using a hot iron.
- Cut out a circle for his fluffy tail from fluffy fabric. I actually don't know the name of the fabric I used. You could also use a crocheted flower or a button etc for the tail.
- Use Fabric Craft glue to adhere the tail to your bunny.
- If you're happy to sew, then a top stitch around the edge of the bunny finishes it off nicely.
And that's it. Ta da! Fluffy Bunny Singlet. C-U-T-E-N-E-S-S. So cute in fact that when my son saw what I was sewing he requested one in "boy" colours, and because I'm all for equality I guess it's back to the sewing table!
Have a happy Easter everyone and enjoy time with your family ... and friends!
