Happy Easter

The Easter long weekend is almost over here in Australia and it has been joyful watching the delight on my boys small faces when they find one of the little eggs that keep turning up in random places ;)

Every Easter I usually try and do some sewing for my God-daughters and Sons. But since my overhaul last month I still haven't managed any quality sewing. Oh I did sew two border seams on the binary code I mentioned last month but that took me the next several days to recover from. And I have fixed some of my Husband's work pants that had split seams or fallen hems but those I pinned whilst standing up and the part I needed to fix was only a couple of inches long. Not fun sewing but at least they're not hanging around making me feel guilty any longer!

So I thought I'd share a couple of sweet little rabbit bags I made last year.

Itty Bitty Bunny Bag - Easter Bag- Rabbit Bag

Itty Bitty Bunny Bag - Easter Bag- Rabbit Bag

I used fabrics from the Reunion line by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics.

Easter Rabbit Bag - in Progress

Rabbit Bag - Embroidery close Up

Easter Rabbit Bag - Back

and a pattern called Itty Bitty Bunny Bag that I found at my LQS.

Itty Bitty Bunny Bag - Easter Bag- Rabbit Bag Purse

They were simple to make and I kind of wish I was young enough to still carry one...

 Happy Easter to All. xx

Oh and since I was going to post this yesterday and didn't( I blame the rabbit), I'm now linking up to Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet over at Lilys Quilts. I would offer some refreshments but I figure you'll all still be full of chocolate and not need any ☺
