Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

My first finish! Sweet Bunny Boo #2

I did it!
I did it!
I SEWED last night!
And I have to say, it felt so, so good.
So, what did I sew?

You may remember (though I am sure you don't because it was SO long ago) when I made two very sweet Bunny Boos for my friend Allegra's two special little kids. You can read about them here and here.

While, I was sure M would like the cute pink one I made her, I was very surprised when Allegra told me that S LOVED his. And when I say LOVE, I mean LOVE! S carries his Bunny Boo EVERYWHERE and has for well over a year. And you can tell it too by how worn and scraggely the poor little bunny looks. S loves to rub Bunny's soft minky ears and when his Bunny Boo is being washed, he sneaks into M's room and steals her Bunny Boo to snuggle with.

Allegra had mentioned to me once or twice that she could hardly allow herself to let S carry the bunny in public, but since he loves it so much she hasn't had the heart to make him leave it at home.

Fast forward to this week when I blogged that I really wanted to start mind has been wondering since then about what projects I could start and the Bunny Boo was the first thing to come to mind. It was quick, it was was the perfect project to ease back into sewing!

So I did.

And S will have Bunny Boo #2 delivered to his home tomorrow.

And look who was back as my Project Manager!

Mollie Girl!

She slept one the desk right next to me.
What a sweet baby girl.

Happy Friday!


  1. Good for you! :) Did you put any of these up for sale? Evelyn might be my first to snuggle an animal instead of a blankie.

  2. Isn't it cool to know that something you made is so loved and well used, especially by a little kid? I am not surprised, it is cute and seems snuggly!
