It’s beginning to feel a lot like Easter ……

Here’s a sneaky little peak at whats been occurring in the sewing laboratory over here at Gizmo and Stitch Towers:20120328-150353.jpg

The sun is shining splendidly over London town, so it’s the perfect opportunity to sit on my balcony, soak up some rays, and do a little bit of hand sewing. I have discovered that I am very much a seasonal crafter; In the autumn and winter I knit, and in the spring and summer I sew. What with all the glorious weather we have been having over here in Blighty recently, I have cast aside my knitting needles, and picked up my sewing box again, and boy am I having fun! I often forget how much quicker it is to make something in fabric than it is to sit and knit it, so I have surprised myself with how many of these little rabbit finger puppets I have managed to whip up in just a couple of hours! They will make perfect little gifts for all the small folk that I know, and a wonderful alternative to chocolate – although I’m sure there will be lots of that being passed around too, it is Easter after all, the perfect excuse to a gorge yourself silly on ridiculous quantities of chocolate and end up feeling a little bit sick, yet very satisfied. Mmmm, chocolate….

Anywho, I digress. I found this wonderful little felt bunny finger puppet tutorial over on the extremely gorgeous blog The Purl Bee.

The tutorial has fabulously clear step by step instructions to follow, and I can assure you that the bunnies are an absolute delight to make. You can find the tutorial by clicking here. I can’t wait to pop the finished little bunnies in to the post for all the gorgeous little children I am lucky enough to know for them to play with this Easter. I am even going to have a go at making my own eggs with a kit that a bought last Easter but sadly didn’t get enough time to use. Fear not Easter egg molds, for this Easter you will fulfill your Easter egg making destiny! Nom nom nom….. x

    • Thank you :o) It’s the first Easter that I have managed to get mysef organised in time to actually make gifts for people, and I’m quite excited about it! Will you be making any Easter prints this year? I adore your reflections on water print, so stunning, and very realsitic! Lino prints totally rock x

      • Thank you – that´s one of my favourites. I normally go for edible baked gifts. At Christmas I made biscuits in the shape of Christmas decorations that could hang on the tree. I suppose for Easter there should be chocolate in there somewhere, so perhaps some bunny shaped chocolate biscuits.

      • Thats a lovely idea! I love edible gifts, always so personal. I hope you have a wonderful Easter, and best of luck with your card range! They are beautiful and bound to sell well. x

    • Tee hee, hop 🙂 Just like the bunnies! Loves it 🙂 You totally should swing by The Purl Bee, it’s a lovely site, but be warned… once you start stitching them adorable little bunnies you will be hooked… don’t say I didn’t warn ya! 😉 x
