So, I've been seeing burlap bunnies here and there and I just so happened to have purchased a bit of burlap the other day 'cause I want to make some other cute stuff out of it, SOOOOOO...I figured I should make a burlap bunny. BUT...I didn't want to make one just like the ones I had seen around, I wanted to make one that was a bit more....well....Jingle.
Honestly, I don't know if I succeeded or not. Last night I didn't love it. I'll be honest. It just didn't come out quite how I had envisioned and I hate it when that happens. I love the pink loose pom-pom tail, though! That is super cute! Just say'n.
I added the floppy fabric bow and I think I love that, too. Originally I hadn't planned on going girly at all, but somehow I ended up there. I think that is what is bothering me. I'm not sure, really. ANYway....even after adding her tail and her bow I wasn't totally pleased with my bunny. Soooo...this morning I painted her ears.
I like her better now. The ears made a HUGE difference. I still don't know if I'm in love, but you know...you win some, you lose some.
I should let you know two things I learned about Burlap:
1. Did you know that ALL burlap comes with free matching thread??? Well, maybe not 'thread,' per se, but when you fray the edges you pull the pieces of twine or whatever the HECK they use to make burlap and then thread that into a needle and use it to stitch your pieces together! Genius! It matches, blends, and is pretty strong, too! YAY!!!
2. Burlap is see-through. Yeah. I know. We all knew this already, but have any of us really thought of the implications of this? Maybe you have, but I neglected to do so. My bunny has white on the BACK of her ears, too. I'll have to do something about that, but I will figure it out later.
So....that's my bunny. What do you think?
Next time...I think I'll go with something more like this:
Mostly 'cause that's an awesome movie and creepy bunnies are just plain cool!
