Wanna talk about cute? This skirt is so darn cute. The skirt was made following the simple skirt tutorial from this post. A bit of applique was added following the instructions from this post. I used the measurements chart from the skirt post to get the sizing correct.
The bunny image you can download here. (Bunny Applique) This skirt is a size 3, so adjust the bunny accordingly. A larger size skirt could sport a larger bunny.
The bunny applique is made using fleece. Not only will the fleece not ravel but it is warm and fluffy like a real bunny. The bunny tail is a little pom-pom that was made from 1/4″ strip of fleece. I have these fantastic Clover pom-pom makers but I couldn’t find them. Hmmmm wonder where I put them? They will eventually show back up but in the meantime I wanted to finish my skirt so I made my pom-poms. I think they look perfect and am now questioning my need to buy every size set of the pom-pom makers. I still love them but you truly don’t need them. If you don’t have a pom-pom maker and don’t know how to make a pom-pom, you can find good instructions here.
The eye is a little gem I applied with my Kandi Kane. Love that little tool. Unlike the pom-pom maker, this little handy-dandy tool I could not live without. Yes you can glue a gem to your fabric using glue. I have tried but the gems fall off. Every single time it falls off. They don’t fall off with the Kandi Kane. It heats the glue on the tip of the gems and it is stuck, stuck, stuck. Not that a child couldn’t sit and pick the eye off, gosh those kids can pick things off that you would have bet couldn’t come off by a gorilla. So never say never but if they want the eye off, they are gonna have to work at it. It is so small too that it couldn’t be a choking hazard. If you have child who eats everything, painting on an eye would work great too.
The fabric was bought for a project that never got completed. Can you imagine? It was used now and that is all that matters. There are tons are super-duper cute Easter fabrics, any would work great.
I also didn’t have any 1″ elastic. I ordered some from Amazon. Oodles cheaper than buying at JoAnn Fabrics. The elastic won’t arrive till Thursday. I did have 1/2″ elastic though. Therefore I simply sewed two rows and used what I had. Looks great.
As always, if you have any questions, send me an email or post in the comments. Happy Sewing.
