Happy Easter!

I made a couple of quilted Easter decorations in time for Easter this year!

OK, full disclosure… I made them last year, but didn’t get them done in time for Easter! So technically, my first statement is true… LOL!

As soon as I saw this bunny banner pattern by Sugaridoo in Quiltnow Magazine Issue 60, I was super excited to make it! I just think this little bunny is adorable!

FYI- Quiltnow Magazine is not longer being published and they have taken down the website where this pattern was located. The pattern is not in the magazine. Sugaridoo doesn’t have this pattern on her website, but she does have a similar bunny that you could use for a bunny banner project!

So cute with the little chick on top! The pattern is a paper pieced pattern. I did not get very creative with this one, even the fabric colors are very similar to the one she made in the magazine. I really debated the quilting. I couldn’t decide what to do and was worried this diamond shape would take away from the bunny. In the end I think it turned out just right.

I didn’t piece the back on this one. I did add a sleeve, but didn’t use it in the photoshoot!

And you probably know that I love to just my scraps from a project in another project or a coordinating project right away. So I made Easter eggs! Scrappy, improv Easter eggs. I used this tutorial for my eggs, but instead of a circle, I made the egg shape.

And I used more scraps from the eggs to make the back!

A little invisible zipper action.

Three eggs and another chick from the original pattern, makes for a cute pillow, if I do say so myself!

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend and hopefully you are able to get some sewing time in! I plan too. A little Easter Egg dying and sewing for my weekend.

Easter Crafting Over the Years

I had some fun Easter crafts planned for this year. We were going to do that this weekend. Then my son got invited to a sleep over and ditched me and my crafting!

So I decided to take a walk down memory lane and reminence on the past Easter projects we’ve done together! That’s the one thing about the blog, projects get buried!

The first Easter project I made for the kiddo was the super easy Bunny BaRoo stuffy! He was pretty cute if I do say so myself!

Another early project was a beautiful yarn wreath by Hugs, Kisses and Snot. I just love the felt lilies! And you should check out her site, because she has another beautiful wreath posted recently!

I LOVED perler beads as a kid, so you know I am super excited that my kiddo loves them too. Even though he insists they are called Fuse Beads… One year we made Easter cards with Perler Beads Easter decorations!

And last year we used toilet paper rolls to stamp Easter egg placemats! These I made a no sew project, but you can stamp on anything!

I’m still going to get some Easter crafting on with the kiddo before the big day comes though… Have you made any Easter crafts this year?
