hes been hopping around in my head for weeks!

pattern making
pattern making and picking out the fabrics

cutting out
cutting out with frannie very nearby!

the help
the help!
Where theres a frannie.. there must also be a figgy!
he seriously wanted to get into that case with her
and wasnt happy that he didnt fit!

trying arm and leg positions...

ta dah!    but too shiney new looking
ta dah!
all together but too shiney new looking...

oh no!  save me, shes going to beat me up!
"oh no ! save me! shes going to beat me up!"

stained and battered
poor little guy got sprayed with distressing
spray and scrubbed with an old toothbrush!

do I look older now
"do i look older now? "

happy heart day!
all finished and ready for happy heart day!

Oh my. How sweet is your bunny. I'm always in awe of your artist abilities. Your furry helpers are just a hoot. I have to say that your sewing basket with the fringe trim is pretty darn lovely too.

Well done, Viv. Well done.

I just love when you get time to create these darling creatures. It amazes me the difference after you've distressed this bunny. I kept scrolling back and forth between pics because I couldn't believe it was the same piece.

So cute. I love your little furry animals.
Questions.....aare they hand sewn. I never heard of destressing spray....what is in it.
Your helpers are sure helpful. Better not make any mice.

Very cute bunnies! :) Where do you buy your fur? I went to Jo Ann's and got some fur (long/natural look) but didn't see anything like this cute blue you have. love your design!
