Well this is a bit exciting, I'm having my first giveaway! It is being hosted on the Team Bacon! blog, "Six Degrees of Etsy Bacon". Team Bacon! is one of the newest teams on Etsy, a quirky crafty creative and talented mob united by their love of Bacon! There are all sorts of interesting features on the blog, so after entering to win a pair of my Atlantis earrings, have a poke around - apart from some awesome recipes and great market sellers tips, there's an interview with Rob White from the Etsy Admin team!

funny bunny

Because sometimes we all need somebunny to love!

I was bitten by the sewing bug this morning, and some green polar fleece had been crying out to be turned into a frog or martian or something. But the kidlet said bunny, so bunny he be. Please welcome the newest member of our family - Funny Bunny!

I drew him up and got to work straight away, he has felt arms and legs, felt face and tail, polar fleece body and backs of ears, and a lovely stripey fabric I've not used yet but had for ever for the front of his ears. I had some blue and green cotton yarn scraps, that were perfect for sewing on his eyes and nose. And the machine was already threaded with a pistachio green thread, which inspired all the exposed zig zag seams, a last minute addition to the design. I'm pretty happy with the little fellow - now to put him to the test of some real loving by the kidlet, I hope he doesn't lose his stuffing!

Happy Easter!

I love receiving packages from Helena of Little Mo and Friends! I wanted to share this little bit of bunny goodness with you and wish everyone a Happy Easter! (And don't forget to go check out Helena's little shop on Etsy!)

And this is what I bought - a beautiful postcard to brighten someone's day!
