bunny bean bags

April 1st, 2009

I didn’t just lurch my pregnant self off the couch and whip these up after the last post. No, I made them last year, but they were such a hit I thought I’d share. Actually I dug these out of the Easter box a few months ago, desperate for some quiet playtime on a very cold winter day. These bunnies have been pancakes and cookies, baseballs and money (bunny money!) and plain old bean bags too. I took this picture right after I made them and good thing I did because they are sad, dirty grey bunnies now, but still loved.  I stole the idea and design from the wonderfully talented Courtney at two straight lines. Hers are of course much nicer and she even made a cabbage to toss them into! It’s a quick project–one that can be done the night before Easter if you are anything like me. I started on a bunny project yesterday that I’m very excited about–we’ll see if it get’s done in time for Easter. What are you making for your kiddo’s baskets?

    Too cute!!
    I am totally changing what we do for Easter around here. I want to make it a little more green and less plastic-y and candy wrapper-y. I would love some pointers or tips if you have any. :~)

    they look like exclamation points or the footprints of a golfer, and the golf ball is even there!

    I saw these too, and totally adore them. I had every intention of making these, but in reality, I wasn’t going to lurch my pregnant and cold-ridden self off the couch to whip em up either.
    So, I settled on some jelly beans packaged up in plastic bags made to look like carrots… good enough. :)
