Easter Recap

Easter has been and gone in a whirlwind blur of craftiness and chocolate. I'm a bit late in getting my recap up but better late than never!

Every year my sister and I get together with our family for Easter and make the little people Easter baskets and bunnies

2011 Baskets

This year Tam was in charge of baskets and I did the bunnies. You can read about how the baskets were made here.

There were a few false starts on the bunnies this year (and honestly this is why there were no bunnies last year). I originally started making Funny Tummy Bunnies but ended up with something looking like an alien. I didn't have time to figure out what went wrong and instead opted for something really simple and went with Mooshy Belly Bunnies instead. It's a free pattern with incredibly easy to understand instructions.

I made a few changes to the pattern. I stitched the ears into the main head seam and omitted the stitching along the arm and leg lines.

The girl bunnies got little pom rosettes and the boy bunnies got little felt bow ties. They all got white pom tails. I love the poms that Tam makes and was delighted our bunnies got to wear some.

We had a great Easter and got to spend time with all our family. A week off work has been the icing on the cake. I feel relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on the world!
