Greetings lovely friends & readers
Goodness I did not mean to be gone for so long 😉 (again!!)
After the two Primitive Rabbits I made in my last Post to give my Grandsons for Easter, I decided to make one for the biggest kid of all ...... Yes - Yours Truly !!Once again I had an oddment from an old candlewick bedspread. When I got the name tags made for my Grandsons I also got one made for the actual name of the Rabbit Pattern - "Wesberry Wabbit"
I wanted a jug to keep my Easter Egg Picks in ... the one I used last year was pretty but it got broken. I saw a lovely pastel one Online with flowers on it, but the price tag was $40 plus $9 freight. $49 for a Jug .... I don't think so 😕. I saw the green one above left in Hospice for $3 .... perfect size - wrong colour ... I painted it with my pale duck egg chalk paint then sanded it ever so lightly.
The second hand Bookstore in my local village of Kihikihi has a large cart out front with Free Books written on it. It is full of hard cover & paperback books & they are All Free !! I came away with an armload last week as I was more than happy to help her disperse with some books 😉. I removed the dust covers, hot glued 3 of them together, & then chalk painted them. I downloaded the Hare Picture free from The Graphics Fairy onto plain photocopy paper
There is a really great tutorial here on Julies designs & signs YouTube channel where I got my inspiration for the book bundles.
It is well worth a watch as she explains the whole process very clearly.
Before I sign off dear friends I have had a few emails & comments left lately requesting the pattern for my Teasel Hedgehogs. Unfortunately when you come through as a no-reply-blogger I am unable to contact you to pass it on - so I will insert the instruction sheet here for you to copy off & also if anyone is wanting pictures of the Teasel Hedgehogs then go to this post Here from 2017 ... & there are lots of photos from the class I taught.
Have a lovely rest of the week dear friends
Remember to be kind to yourselves & to each other,
With much love & friendship to You All,
Julie & the furry ones x0x0x
