Today...I took this little bunny, gave him a wash, ironed on some interfacing, sewed on a button, seam-sewed the edges together, stuffed it with Lavender and walnut shells and edged it with silk ribbon and petite seed beads...
...to create this fob! It turned out exactly as I wanted it to look. And I finally have a finish to share.
Design ~ The Littles "Bunny"
Designer ~ Bent Creek
Fabric ~ 32 count Daffycat-Dyed Lugana
Fiber ~ DMC, Dinky Dyes Silk Ribbon, Mill Hill Petite Seed Beads
Finish ~ Walnut Shell & Lavender Stuffed Scissor Fob
The edging was inspired by Valerie, of Fog City Dweller. Remember Valerie sending me the sweetest little fob for her blogoversary giveaway? I really loved the edging and wanted to try something similar. Thank you, Valerie!
I searched every store in town looking for ribbon that would work and could find nothing suitable. A plea on my blog sent Glenna, of Eye of the Needle into action and she found the perfect silk ribbon for me. Thank you, Glenna...it worked perfectly!
Isn't that edge treatment fun? The random swirls, spaces and beads really appeal to me. So ~ all in all, this little bunny fob was a joint effort and I'm so pleased with the results! *happy dance*
