A Brand New embroidery design is being released today. It is the In The Hoop Bunny Bum. I think you are going to really enjoy this little project because it can be finished two different ways. It has some unique steps in the design to allow you to complete the entire process in one 5x7 hooping.
Look closely and you will see one of the finished Bunnies has a hanging ribbon on the top. The other bunny is installed on a dowel. The front shows all of the sweet details of a smiling bunny rabbit.
When you turn them over, you see the details of the feet and a cute fluffy fringed tail. A ribbon bow tie finishes everything up.
Look how cute that Bunny Bum is. When I designed this I imagined spring time wreaths on front doors. If you made several In The Hoop Bunny Bums, you could insert them facing both directions around the wreath.
Or you could stick the dowel into a house plant or flowers as an added decoration. Tie a pretty satin bow around the pot and you have a cute springtime gift for someone!
Decorate a small tabletop tree for springtime with several different pastel bunnies.
Or you can add bunnies to your Easter baskets in between all of the other goodies. These would look so sweet on your desk at work. Teachers would love these as a gift.
One fun technique is adding the ears so they stand up. Your embroidery machine does the stitching.
The tail is another fun part because it is digitized to be fringed. Here you see the trimming that will create that fluffy look.
Here is a sneak peek at the creative cutting you do in the hoop so the design can be completed in one 5x7 hooping.
Everything is turned out here and ready to stuff with fiberfill. If you have remnants of fleece in your stash, you can see that this little design would make great use of them.
If you don't have dowels, you can use take out chopsticks. That would be a great way to recycle! Hot glue keeps the dowel where it needs to be while you hand sew the bunny closed.
Are you ready to create your own In The Hoop Bunny Bum? Maybe you are inspired to start pulling out those springtime decorations. In my area, we are trimming back our plants, cleaning out flower beds and looking through seed catalogs. Just a few more weeks and we will start to see those early spring flowers pop up.
