It’s getting closer to Easter! And I wanted to play, I mean sew, along with Project Run & Play Season 9! This week’s theme is “Put Me In The Zoo” so I went very, very literal so I could ‘double dip’ and make something for Easter too! You can read about Project Run & Play on their website here.
The patterns I used were Terra’s Treasures Monkey Pants & See Kate Sew’s Recess Raglan* (shocker, I know!). The fabric is all upcycled, with the ears appliqued and the face and carrot are hand embroidered. I have studied exactly zero about embroidery. I have no idea what I’m doing. There was a huge bag of floss and hoops at the thrift store for super cheap, I bought it, and I embroider when it occurs to me! I had planned on appliqueing the face and sharing the pattern but I ended up just embroidering the whole thing. I like that I can do embroidery in the car, or while my son plays, so I really ought to figure out what I’m doing and read up.
Lots of folks think of button-down shirts and frilly dresses as Easter clothes, but we’re a pretty laid back family. I’m all about comfy and cute, and I think this outfit is both!
Tiny carrot! I figured by keeping it subtle, then I can use the t-shirt separately after Easter as well.
Here is a side shot with the ears a-flappin’. So cute!
Lastly, the up close shot of the bunny butt. I just love how these turned out!
