Easter Fabric Giveaway – Jodie Carleton’s Bunny Trail fabric

Posted under BlogCompetitions & Giveaways on 2017-03-30 08:25:15

I love this Bunny Trail fabric designed by my friend Jodie Carleton of Ric Rac.  I know it’s not her newest range, but when I saw the “Spring Bunnies” fabric in 4 colours, I knew I just had to make it into

Easter Bunnies!!!!


I chose my Baby Bunny toy pattern because it only takes about a fat quarter for 1 bunny so I would have some fabric left for an Easter Fabric Giveaway!

So for my FRIDAY FRENZY I am having a fabric giveaway for you to win some of Jodie’s Bunny Trail fabric and my Baby Bunny Pattern for you to make some Easter Bunnies of your own… Yeeeeehar!

It was such fun for me to visit the Stitchee Shop in Holland as Erika has been one of my wholesale customers for many years and we have become good friends!

I was really excited to teach a toy making workshop as part of the shop’s 5th birthday celebrations! I was a bit nervous as there were 13 people doing the Fifi FOX toy-making workshop with me… BUT it turned out to be a really fun evening!


I loved spending time in the Stitchee Shop because it’s such a bright and cheery space, packed FULL to the brim with all sorts of crafty goodies…

NOT JUST Funky Friends patterns and toys!


I couldn’t resist…  and packed a goodie-bag of as many little treasures as I could carry home so I could bring back some fun stuff for a crafty giveaway!

Check it out!!!

At first I thought he was selling fabrics and I was really excited because I thought they would look awesome made up as Funky Friends toys, but it turns out…

these are NOT fabrics?
