Perseverance Pays Off...

Nomes handed me this pattern of this cute little rabbit called 'Jack the Rabbit' which can be found at               , she thought that it would make a cute little gift for my grand kiddies for Easter. 

Well I fell in love with the thought and I proceeded to make one...unbeknownst to me did I realise that it was going to be a pure labour of love. I followed the pattern but it was not looking very pretty, so at this point I was going to give up; Nomes was not going to let me drop it. So with her help and guidance,with a pinch from my loving mum I revised the pattern to make it work for me. As you can see it was worth the frustration cos he looks so cute. 

I could not give this one away as it will be constant reminder to me that Perseverance Pays Off... SO I made another two.

I now have a family of rabbits living in my sewing room at the moment.

I have also done another one of those fabric boxes, but this time I did crazy patched sides instead of strips I think that it turned al-right as well

Perseverance will always pay off, when it comes to craftwork anyway....I'm SOOOOO proud of you and all your latest efforts and conquests....even if some future plans involve cherries *winks* I'm sure the grandies will ADORE their bunnies.
