Happy Easter!

Here’s our goofy little bunny and his big brother. It was hard enough to get a photo of one bunny let alone two!

I made Wesley a lego bunny and set it on his night table to surprise him when he woke up.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful day.

Here’s a peek at the bunnies I made for my little bunnies.

They’re really easy to make so there’s still time to make one for the somebunny special in your life.

You can get the pattern here.

Crafts for my boys.

Last week I pulled some late-nighters finishing some things for the boys.  I finally got to making them rag quilts. Nate’s is all Lightening McQueen fabrics and Wesley’s is this funky loud pirate print. Hrm, guess there should be a photo here. Too lazy right now.

I also made them some cute little bunnies using this pattern.  I haven’t been able to take pictures of the ones I created yet because they’re hiding in the basement until Easter.

Aaaannnd I made Nate this cute little backpack using Made by Rae‘s pattern. Because I can never just make a pattern the way it’s written I had to get a little more complicated and I added some fleece to the inside to give the bag some more stability.  I used a cotton print so it was pretty flimsy, she recommends a heavier fabric, I didn’t listen. I added a little pocket to the outside too, for change or his library card, I don’t know it’s just a fun detail.

I’ve also been trying to use what I have on hand and not buy more stuff.  So instead of piping I used bias tape and positioned it just so.  I love how it turned out.  Nate loves to leave with a backpack when I walk them across the street to the sitters.  Guess he wants to be like his  goes-to-school big brother!

Easy Easter treat stand.

Made this cute little stand for our Easter/springtime snacks.  My friend and I have been on the hunt at thrift stores for the perfect pieces to make a cake stand.  While browsing Joann’s last week she happened to pick up an egg cup and a small plate and we had an idea.  So we each picked up a cup and plate.  They were in a clearance aisle for 50% off!   A little bit of glue . . ..

A little bit of drying . . . .

All ready to go, just add treats!
