Chenille Bunnies and Chicks

49-DSCF0781Since moving I have had to utilize every possible empty space for storing my crafts and craft supplies. That included the space under my son’s bed. He’s away at college so I figured he wouldn’t mind. ;) This last week I was going through some containers under the bed and I came across a WIP box of chenille bunnies and chicks that I had made a few years ago.

48-DSCF0759The items in the box were a variety of pre-cut and pre-sewn pieces, along with the other craft supplies needed to complete them. Since Easter is still two weeks away I decided to make them and take them to the store where I sell them locally.

Blast From The Past: Crocheted Chick Tutorial

Since I’ve been busy with the move, unpacking and trying to catch up, I decided a little blast from Easter past was in order.

I first posted about my free crocheted chick tutorial last year.

Whimsical Carrot Pillow-Tutorial

7-DSCN5159Whimsy Easter Carrot

It’s cute! It’s cuddly! I mean, who doesn’t need a carrot pillow?

I made this pillow as an Easter decoration, but I can definitely see it working as nursery decor or a child’s snuggle buddy.

Simple stitching makes this a great project for a sewing beginner.

You can find my tutorial on CraftBits.

Chenille Bedspread Bunny Bag

Another Easter offering made from a white chenille bedspread.

The bedspread I used for this just seems to go on an on. In the last year I have made things for Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas…Okay, since I made multiples of each project I suppose it’s possible that I used a couple of white chenille bedspreads. Chenille bedspreads are like diamonds to me. If I see them while out junking, I just have to have them.

5-DSCN5154Doesn’t his face look like he wants to tell you where the eggs are hidden?

The cute little ears on the bunny is the handle for the bag. Can’t you just see a little girl carrying this to church? It would also work great as a gift bag, or for gathering eggs during an Easter egg hunt.

I used Easter fabric for the lining, but any spring fabric will work.

Check out the tute here.
