Bunny Parade

Remember I visited the Fat Quarter Quilt Shop a couple weeks ago and brought a couple patterns home with me? Well, last Wednesday, Phoebe and I decided to do a stitching day and picked one of the patterns to work on. This is what came out of that afternoon~~

Pattern: Bareroots “Bunnies Candle Mat” Kit
Fabric: Wool Felt
Size: 7.5” in Diameter
Finishing Date: 07-12-2009
Isn’t this the cutest thing?! I fell in love with this design the moment I saw it!!! This actually was a kit and the background was originally black. But we saw a sample in the store that had the pink background and thought it was way cuter with pink, so we switched it out~~

This is the first time I tried making something like this, and there sure was a learning curve on stitching those whipstitch so don’t look too close!!! LOL Well, I figured this adds to the primitive feeling of this piece, right? ;-)

Thanks for Phoebe, she got all kinds of beads in her stash, so we got to add these beautiful seed beads to it. I love how the beadings make the whole piece pop!!!

It’s so fun to work on projects with a friend. Not only can we discuss about the colors, exchange opinions, and share ideas, this also motivates me to get things done in a timely matter!! I had a lot of fun making this with Phoebe, you should go check her work out!!! She finished hers in one afternoon, and it looks perfect!! So, Phoebe, when is our next stitching date? ;-)
