My first Giving Bunny

Since it rained much of the day, I did some sewing.  I started a blouse.  I also made my first Giving Bunny.    The pattern is free on Urban Threads and that page also describes the project….

“Can you imagine the unexpected delight of going about your day, maybe even not a very good day, and discovering this little gift left just for you? A tiny plushy bunny with a tag asking you to take him home. Maybe even a few of these people will follow the link on the bunny’s tag back here, and make one of their own to share with someone else. And thus the bunnies can spread… well, like bunnies!

It’s a small thing, but a little bit of vigilante embroidery mixed with street art, and you can spread a tiny bit of bunny shaped joy to someone you’ve never met, and maybe make what was a grey day a little brighter. Plus, with your help, this project can spread from one free design to hundreds, maybe even thousands of bunnies all across the world!”

She is named in honor of my mother.

Mine are hand embroidered as I do not have an embroidery machine.  Gives me something to do while watching TV.  I have two more embroidered but not sewn together and two more to embroider.

I haven’t decided where I’ll leave her but I will bring her with me when I go out and will pick a place.

Tues, 25 June update:  I’ve done the bunny drop.  She is now at a local Trader Joe’s waiting to be found and taken to her new home.  Do bunnies like quinoa?

    What a great project! Reminds me of the 1,000 Journals Project.
