Running Rabbit Make -Do

I finally got around to making up this make-do.  I saw the tutorial for it, as well as the pattern at Lynne's blog, ♥ A Simpler Time ♥  I love her blog!  I made him out of some vintage fabric and have him on my mantel.
Displayed with him are some of the eggs I made with Heather yesterday.  These are small plastic eggs that we coated in craft glue and rolled in a coffee/cinnamon mixture.

I couldn't decide were to display them.  They look good here and I also had them on my windowsill above my sink, right next to the sunflower my sun planted and grew at school and gave to me for Valentine's day. *Ahhhhh*  I think I will have to make more to put in both places. (sorry about the back light in this picture.  But the sun is actually shining today! Yahoo!)
I put the some of the fabric wrapped ones on my stove board.  I cut up an egg carton, grubbied it up a little and put them in there.  We first found this idea at Libbie's Home.
One more thing I wanted to share with you.  Back in the fall, when everything was dying off, I cut my (already dried and dead) sunflowers and tucked them away for when inspiration struck me.  I put a few stems in this jug.  I am also going to cut some of the heads off the stems, shower them with a prim scent and use them as a bowl filler.

Ok, I lied. One last note, don't forget to sign up for our first ever giveaway.  I know there are a lot of exciting ones out there right now.

  3. Very Cute rabbit!!! I'm glad that link helped you out for the disappearing nine patch. I have only made one fringe quilt for my son. BUT I made a really cute rag tote for a swap. I agree I hate cutting the fringe. LOL


  4. Very cute rabbit, love the vintage fabric that you used!

    I can't believe those are plastic eggs! That coffee/cinnamon mixture stuff can be so addicting, lol. I am finding that I want to put it on everything now. I agree with you though, you need to make more for the windowsill. The fabric wrapped ones are cute too!

  5. Lori...your bunny make do is so darn CUTE!!
