I have been in the mood to embroider lately for some reason. I don’t do it often – mostly because transferring the patterns is a bit of a pain and I’m a bit lazy. Anyway, I found a darling bunny pattern over at Orange Flower Patterns ( http://orangeflowerpatterns.blogspot.com/ ).
Here’s my version.
I was just going to use it to practice as I hadn’t embroidered in awhile and I wanted to do a pillowcase for Shelby. But it turned out so cute that I had to do something with it. So I took it to my friend Missie, who owns the local quilt shop, and had her make it into a little pillow that hangs on a door knob. I didn’t take a picture of the back, but it’s a nice 1930’s (plus or minus) reproduction print.
Shelby got very excited when she saw me hang it up – she thinks it’s a purse – so it has not hung on the doorknob for any longer than it took to take the picture! I wanted to get a picture of her carrying it around like a purse, but it’s difficult to get her picture these days because she has decided she likes to be behind the camera and see the images on the screen.
It’s slightly out of focus because she was fixing to bolt over to see what was on the camera screen.
