A Bunny Embroidered Bag

And now for my third embroidery project!

RabbitBag-Main2-ImFeelinCrafty

This project is a combo of two projects from The Love magazines! Since I’m still learning this embroidery thing, I’m enjoying following the directions from the Love Embroidery Magazine instructions.

RabbitBag-Detail-ImFeelinCrafty

This pattern by Stacie Bloomfield aka Gingibear was featured in Issue 1 of the magazine, but it’s also online at Gathered. It was a pretty easy project, but the split stitch that I did to fill in the body took me forever! and it doesn’t have the same lovely texture as her project. Maybe I didn’t do it exactly right. Not sure!

RabbitBag-Magazine-ImFeelinCrafty

For the bag I followed the tutorial in Love Quilting Magazine for the Stitch and Stroll bag by Sotak Handmade. I forget the issue number, but it looks like her pattern is in now in her etsy shop, here. It’s called the Denver Tote in her shop. It’s a great little drawstring tote bag pattern. I’ve made it a couple of times now and it goes together quickly! In hindsight, I wish the bunny was higher up on the bag…. Oh, well!

RabbitBag-Inside-ImFeelinCrafty

I choose to use some fun chicken fabric on the inside! I thought it was bright and fun and went well with the bunny!

I gave this as a Christmas present, but maybe it should have been an Easter present! 🙂 ha!

My First Embroidery Projects

I started doing embroidery back in 2020! I started getting more and more enamored by embroidery watching amazing artists on instagram. Then I found the Love Embroidery Magazine and got hooked!

For this project, I attempted the cover project from Issue 4 of Love Embroidery Magazine. Only I wasn’t about to attempt the whole thing! I tried the hummingbird, but not the flowers. The directions in the magazine are always quite through.

It even looks like I almost know what I’m doing!

HummingbirdEmbroidery-Paper-ImFeelinCraft

Instead of doing the flowers as embroidery, I went back to something I knew a little better and that’s paper crafts and using my Cricut. I got the leaf and flower templates from the Designs by Miss Mandee blog. She makes AMAZING things from paper and a Cricut! I used her tutorial and SVG files for her Die Cut Tropical Leaves wreath project. I also added flowers from her Spring Animals with Flower Crowns project.

HummingbirdEmbroidery-Back-ImFeelinCraft

I used to glue my backs and then learned that gathering back helps with fabric stretching over time. So now I finish the backs like this!

HummingbirdEmbroidery-Last-ImFeelinCraft

I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out! This is actually my second ever embroidery project. Keep reading for my first project…

IceCream-IceCream-ImFeelinCrafty

My dad, husband, son and I love Ice Cream…. My son thinks my Dad’s night time ritual of a bowl of ice cream every night is what everyone should do. When I saw this little project, I knew it would be a great gift for my dad!

This was a fun project to start my embroidery obsession. I just wish I had all the time in the world to sew, embroider and cross stitch!
