Making bunnies for market day.

 Hello all. It's been a while since I made bunnies but I have a craft fair in a couple of weeks and I often get asked for these beautiful bunnies so I thought I'd be a good girl and get cracking. 
 I really should be making felt as I have 4 commissions to do but I'm just not in the mood. That sounds awful doesn't it but I know they won't turn out right if I not in the right mood to do them. Let cross our fingers and hope the mood returns...very soon!
 Now bunnies...that's a different kettle of fish so to speak. Bunnies are pretty much just following my pattern although I have been tweaking their ears. Not in a nasty way you understand, I would never hurt a bunny but I must admit their ears are very fiddle-some. 'There must be an easier way!' I said to myself. 
 So after experimenting on 4 sets of bunny ears I think I've come up with a better way of doing it, I just need to alter my patten pieces and have a couple more goes to see if my plan works. 
 So you can be assured there will be more bunnies in the pipeline or should I say in the basket. These four are awaiting their heart embroidered tails.
And here they all are finished and posing nicely for their photographs to be taken ready for my Etsy shop.

OO! Nearly forgot to tell you. I now have a Marmaladerose Facebook page here for anyone who prefers fb!

Till next time
love Fi x

Love these bunnies! I have just started a bit of embroidery. Please don't tell me you embroidered the fabric for your bunnies yourself???? Was it fabric you bought? It is so beautiful.
