can anybody find me some-BUNNY to love???

lots of easter-love is going around and with spring just around the corner, it seemed perfect to try out elsie's DIY monday funny bunny plush doll..

i decided to make two hand-stitched plush dolls.

the first one:

...went home to two (soon to be three) of my favorite people, del and ryan, who are expecting a baby boy!  can't wait to meet him!

the second one:

i added french knots (i think this is my favorite) to indicate whiskers, i learned how to do this from purl bee's tutorial.  most of  the embroidery is done with a backstitch.

...this one went to my lil' man, dominic, who gives the bunny big hugs and sloppy kisses!

have  a very happy sunday!

xo, carla

@ katt - i got the dyi from abeautifulmess i posted the link on the article. you should give it a try, you are really crafty. i'm sure you can make it even better!

@ kellie - thank you for your bunny inspiration post - it helped me push through to the finish (was getting lazy)! elsie posted it as her dyi, it was fun! i will send del your message, i'm sure she'll give you a call after the baby is born.

@ jozen - thanks, it took forever though...
