Wool bunny - unfinished project #2
Well I am proud to present my second finish of the new year ... A wool bunny
Now remember this was the banner project from last year and I wasn't paying attention when I laid him out. Please don't tell me he is sitting on the pennies, or that I should have moved them down ... I was not going to undo what I had sewn to correct it and make it perfect. DESPITE what a couple of my friends said ... Harrumph!! The drive this year in getting it done is reaching a finish ... It doesn't have to be the same finish you originally had in mind. Done is better than laying in a box, collecting dust! I wasn't sure how the banners were finished off, I could see on the pattern they were blanket stitched around the whole thing. I simply sewed my back right sides together with my front, left a hole for turning the whole thing right side out, clipped my curves before turning, and then blanket stitched around the entire outside. I really like the way it finished the piece.
Isn't he cute? Once I figured out how to get the back off this frame I had laying around, I used my 505 basting spray and wrapped the frame back in batting, then sprayed again and wrapped it with a layer of fabric. I just pinned the banner on, and I will change it out every month. But I better get busy and get another one finished ... the valentine one is almost done.
