This is Golden Rabbit, he's my Easter Afternoon Project.
This pattern is so simple, it's a pleasure to make and really, it only takes an afternoon.
I don’t usually associate bunnies with Easter, however, I sketched this rabbit (he’s more of a hare, isn’t he?) a few years ago, and I’ve been wanting to make him up. So here he is: bright, vibrant and dancing through a meadow. The meadow side of spring.
If you’ve been thinking about an easy Easter project to brighten up your table, there’s still time to get this one done.
The pattern is a line drawing and is suitable for a small wall hanging. I’m going to hang mine up on the kitchen entry door. My DDs like the idea of turning it into a spring cushion and whilst that would work, I think a wall hanging wins. Of course, if you added sides you could also make a table runner, whatever suits you. It’s so versatile. My only recommendation is brights. I haven’t stitched in my sleeve hanging yet as I wanted to post this project right now, but I will be adding a hanging sleeve to finish it off. Of course, you could just print it out and colour it in too!
Here I am, looking over my table, I stash busted this pattern,
and it feels so good to have used up some fabric and created / finished a WIP.
Here are the fabrics I selected to use and also, the front page of the pattern.
I coloured it in to play around with colours and you can too.
I also added an extra flower when making up as three is always better than two!
He's so bright! I really like how the leaves have turned out
Now, although my head is in Spring, in my part of the world, we are actually getting cooler. It's funny, but I still relate to European weather! I think many of my blog followers are in Spring, so it's OK, I can get away with it!
Like it? Make it!
When this pattern was first released in 2011, I made it free to all members of my online quilting group at that time. Today, it is no longer available for free, however you can purchase the pattern for $2.95 USD as an instant digital download.
