…the Bunny Bag!!
Oh em gee. I am so happy, you have no idea!! I totally didn’t work on my plates at all tonight either. But it was so worth it.
I used a lot of odds-and-ends fabric left over from other projects. Fleece is so forgiving, I’m in love. I discovered how to applique on my sewing machine, which I will now probably use on everything. I lined it with some ridiculous pink flowered satin. It even has a little pocket inside, made from the same flannel as the face. (Pocket!!!) Oh! And there is a ruffle made from the flannel, up on the shoulder. ♥
I still have a few kinks to work out, such as how I attach the lining. I don’t want it to puff out of the opening so much, and I don’t want to topstitch it, but I want the lining to be loose on the inside so that you can shake out the muffin crumbs and pencil shavings and all that. And I want to try appliqueing the smile, so that it’s a little bolder. My hand embroidery is pretty shabby; my best stitch is chain stitch (which is what I used here– just did it on the wrong side of the fabric so that it would look like a solid line).
