Snuggle Stuffies

     My Favorite Things is having a contest for paper piecing and I was inspired to turn my little snuggle bunnies into stuffed animals, kind of a calico rabbit thing. You know these are some of my fav images since my Johnny Luv is also known as SnuggleBunny.  I'm sure he doesn't mind the entire world knowing that. lol.

     I decided since I was going to have calico bunnies why not give the card a sewing/quilt theme.  I had a DCWV pad that had tons of calico and quilt prints and I loaded up on the faux stitching. Someday I will set up my sewing machine and try real stitching for a change.  I happened to have some new cream colored buttons that have slots instead of holes and some old lace that fit through the slots just right so those were added in also.  As you can see I went to town with the pinking shears as well.  When I find a theme I tend to over do a little, quilts, calico, stitching, pinking, buttons, etc...  But, think my fav bit is their cute little cotton ball tails or maybe the rolled rose?  I have really fallen in love with these roses and have the MFT rolled rose die in three sizes and the daisy too.
I also used a sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketches #MFTWSC52.  This is there last sketch for 2011.  I saved all their sketches from last year.  They have some great ones and they have them all listed on the SCS forum.

BTW, I am not working for My Favorite Things, they just happen to have lots of things I like.  Just thought you should know.  I also like Crisco and can't cook with out that and don't work for them either nor do I work for Hersey but I will eat the heck out of their Chocolate Almond Bars, another of the best things in my world, well aside from Johnny Luv and the Kiddos.  OK enough rambling,  I off to take one of the kiddos to the eye dr.
