Out of the Rabbit Hole

It's been so long since I showed up here that you must have thought I fell down the rabbit hole.

It might be just that, for look who I met when I came out.

I was browsing my favorite blogs a couple of weeks ago when I came across this great tutorial from All Sorts.      
And instantly it was clear to me that I NEEDED to make one for myself.  I pushed aside everything else I was working on and had to make it right away.  I looked through my supplies - sorry, no time to go shopping for the perfect fleece or new fabrics - and had my little bunny ready in no time.

Of course, my boyfriend got jealous and demanded a matching boy version, so a second one came as quickly as the first.  They are that easy to make!  And for the clothes, I used the dress pattern, which I slightly modified, and turned in into a little jacket.

What I like the most about these cuties, apart from the fact that they multiply in the blink of an eye, is that their clothes are reversible and leaves space for their pompom tails to pop out.  That is just too darn cute.

I don't have any specific plans for them, except to keep me company in the studio, but don't you think they'd be great in Easter baskets?
