Sally who blogs at The Objects of Design posted a tutorial in July 2015 for left facing bunnies. I made 5. I was thinking I would make a baby quilt for the hope chest for a future great grandchild to go with the book Velveteen Rabbit, one of my favorite children's books. The plan is also for one of the rabbits to be made from an old velveteen skirt I made for myself and wore for years and years until it shrunk (i.e. until I got old, i.e. until I put on a few pounds).
Then, being reverse-a-pattern-challenged, I asked Sally if she would make a tutorial for a right facing bunny. And, being the wonderful person she is, Sally obliged and made a right facing bunny tutorial in Aug 2015. But I never got around to using the tutorial until last weekend. Now I have 5 right facing bunnies to go with the lefties. I wasn't thinking when I made that wild rabbit in the middle. I thought the rabbit was going to be the darker brown and the arm and ears would be the wild fabric.
So now there are 10 rabbits. I haven't figured out yet how many rabbits it takes to make a baby quilt but before I forget how to make both right and left bunnies and which fabric goes where I think I will try to get a lot more made this weekend. When I made the left facing bunnies I added a 2.5 sashing piece in front of it. I'm not sure that will stay.
In case you were wondering about that shrunken velveteen skirt that inspired the color scheme and will soon turn into a rabbit on the quilt as well as a stuffed rabbit (hopefully) here it is. I can't seem to find the old Velveteen Rabbit book that will go into the hope chest with the whole mess.
