Easter 2012 Project


Easter Egg Cozy


I think this little bunny is too cute, he's from my sketchbook and the fabrics are all from my stash, so he's a stash busting bunny! 
After drawing him onto my fabric, I stitched the outline on my machine with wool wadding behind to give him some shape. Looking at the reverse image (below) I realised that he would look pretty cute the wrong side up too.


Then I coloured him in with Prismascolor pencils and Indian Ink


Then I outlined the overall shape and cut him out with a seam allowance

 Heat set the pencil work


Select the egg cozy background. I opted for felt.


Stitch the bunny down, turning the seam allowance edges as you go. You could also raw edge applique him if you wanted to.


And lightly stuff to puff out the bunny shape as you stitch


Don't forget his tail...

and this is the shape you will end up with. Simply stitch the outline together to create the cozy. I used 1 inch felted wool for the bottom edge you see here, cut with pinking shears.

I will post pics of my finished cozy tomorrow...

I can't add downloadable files to blog posts, so I'll be posting this quick and easy free pattern
over in my Yahoo Group
