Rabbits and Basket with links to Tutorials

Also check out my post from yesterday for more samples and my own tutorial for a reversible basket!





I saw this bunny pattern (on Sew Thankful Sunday --Julie the Crafty Quilter's blog) and loved it right away!  Find this Easter Bunny Softie Pattern by Amy at Positively Splendid here.
Easter Bunny Softie Pattern
I've been planning to go buy the Matelasse (French for "quilted") when I found some scraps my friend gave me after reupolstering her couch.  The right side of the fabric is taupe and the wrong side is more cream color.  So I sewed one of each.

I tried a new pattern for the basket.
Here's the link to the tutorial by Christina at Birch Fabrics

I made the large basket/bin but shortened it because I added the handle and didn't want to fold the lining down.
Aren't the bunnies cute!  They look like they're being affectionate.  I was thinking they'd also look attractive made from corduroy or velveteen with a matching basket.

These are so beautiful for Easter and Spring ! I love your Matelasse bunnies. (I always wondered what that word meant!)
I'll have to try out this basket pattern. (I am also addicted to making baskets. they tend to multiply at my house... like bunnies!)
