Some Beautiful EASTER TOY


I’ve never seen a version of the Easter Bunny Pattern sewn in giraffe print (left), but Kathy V. shows you can make & sew toys in any fabric!

The bunnies are multiplying! Liz A. made a mountain of yellow rabbits from the Easter Bunny Buddies Pattern .

Christine S. used some white felt behind the craft eyes on her version of the Easter Bunny Buddy to help them stand out against a dark fabric. Looks great! 👀

Who says a duck HAS to be YELLOW??? This purple version of the Dilby Duck Pattern sewn by Emma C. reminds me of vibrant springtime flowers.

Emilie G. is sewing six Egghead Easter Chicks this year and shared her first two with us. That jelly bean fabric is so fun.

And I can’t believe it, but I think this is the first Egghead the Easter Chick I’ve seen in the rosebud swirl style minky fabric. I love the texture of the fabric on this chick by Cherie E., and she says this little guy makes her smile every time she sees him.

We didn’t have an entry for the  Lamkins Lamb Pattern this week, so here’s a favorite lamb from the past sewn by Bunty’s Basket Keepsakes.

We had a ton of Baby Bunny toys pop up (hop up?) this week, including this adorable matching pair Nina T. sewn for her grandkids. I like the creative fabric placement!
