Turning Over a New Leaf

Up until now, the only holiday I have decorated for is Christmas.  I do some seasonal decorating, mainly fall, but I've never decorated for Easter.  Now that I'm getting friendly with my sewing machine,  I've made up a few ornies and bowl fillers for Easter.

A 'chocolate' Easter bunny.  This one doesn't call my name like the real chocolate ones do.  I'm pretty proud of this guy because I drew the template myself, by hand! I plan on making more carrots, so I have a bunch of them that I can tie together.  I just wanted to make one to see how it turned out.  After I painted it orange and stained it, I sprinkled it with ground cloves to give it that "fresh from the garden" dirty look.

I also made up some fabric eggs (pattern hand draw by me!).  Some of them were made with vintage scraps and I made two with blue ticking I picked up on our road trip.  I stained these as well, to give them a little age.


  1. Wonderful job on them!
    they are so cute!
    enjoy your day!

  9. LOVE the chocolate bunny! Any way you could share the pattern you drew here on your blog? It would be so fun to make one of those guys!

  10. Sure Gayle, I'd love to share it. I'll get it scanned and figure out how to do that.

  11. I've never liked the pastel colors that are associated with Easter so I never decorated. A few years ago, I found out that I can buy the pastel pieces and prim them! Wow, now I have lots of fun with it!

    Love your chocolate bunny! He is so adorable! He does look good enough to eat, yum! Very cute carrots and eggs too.

  12. Love the Easter goodies you cute!!
