Friday Show and Tell

TGIF! Kelli at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ is hosting Show and Tell.
This week I would like to show you some of the Easter crafts I have been making. Easter is my favorite holiday!
This little funny bunny was made following a pattern in the Create and Decorate magazine. She was really simple to make and alot of fun to decorate. The flowers are millenary flowers that I bought at a auction sale. She is made from a damask napkin that my Grandmother gave me, so that makes her even more special.This little duck was made from the same damask napkin. (They were big!) I used the pattern in my new Tilda craft book called Springtime crafts. This was super easy to make and I love how it turned out.
Last but not least in this fabric egg also made from the Tilda book. Again super easy. The only thing that took very long of this was sewing the beads on. Last night I made 8 of these eggs in all different colors, one is blue with guitars on it for Yngwie! Isn't that a cute little stand? I found that yesterday at the thrift store for .25
No big plans for the week-end, thank goodness. I have kept the house pretty clean all week so I won't will guilty about sewing alot this week-end. If the garden isn't too muddy, I hope to get it cleaned out and tilled up enough to get some onions planted. I can't hardly wait until SPRING!
Blessings
Linda

Your bunny has a lot of character AND cuteness!

I got bounced today, somehow I didn't quite fit into the guidelines. That's okay, my post stands as is.

Oh I wish I had your sewing creativity! I think I have sewing fear...kind of like "paint fear." I'm so worried it will turn out horrible.

Thanks for visiting my post today...and glad you found gymnastics was a better fit! Better than being in a class you really don't like.

Have a great weekend!

Your craft ideas are so cute. I love how the bunny is sort of pigeon toed, The egg is beautiful too. Isn't it wonderful to find something to do that you can enjoy so much?
Several years ago I crocheted many animal and birds for the kiddies. It was a fun project too.
I hope you have a great week!
