W.I.P. Wednesday (on Thursday) : Easter Projects

A day late, but not short on crafty ideas in this week’s installment of W.I.P. Wednesday.

I can’t believe Easter is just around the corner.  At our house Easter is celebrated as marking the Spring Solstice and the promise of new life and new beginnings.  Vegan chocolate a plenty in the baskets, and usually some bunny love for our daughter, Guppy.

This year I’m much busier with work that I have been in years past, but I don’t want that to get in the way of my making something special for the baskets this year. Last year’s bunny is still one of her favourites, and I’ve since made a few for other people. She also still plays with these bunnies from two years ago, one of my first attempts at sewing anything, especially a toy.

Inspiration abounds on the Internet, and these projects featured on The Purl Bee have really caught my attention. I’m not sure which I’ll have time to put together, but I thought I’d share my “Project To-Do” list with you. The following photos are all from the The Purl Bee site, and they’ll lead you to the project posts.

These Bunny Finger Puppets are just adorable! I love that they’re quick and small, just like a bunny I guess.  I’ve still got some vegan felt left, so I’ve no excuses.

These Best Bunnies would be just perfect for my 1.5 year-old niece. With its reversible/double face, it’s like having two bunnies in one. This would be a great project to use up  bits from other sewing ventures as well.  Start here with Materials and Notes if you’d like to make one, and follow the links to complete your bunny.

Have you got any Easter projects you’d like to share? Ideas are always more than welcome, just leave a link in the comments section.

We would love to see what you’re up to!  Snap a shot of your  “in progress” masterpiece and add it to the  W.I.P. Wednesday Flickr Pool. Whatever your works-in-progress, have a crafty week, and don’t forget to see what the other Wipsters are working on.

  1. Oh the cuteness! I can’t stand it! *squee!*

    I don’t celebrate Easter, but I do celebrate bunnies, chocolate, and chocolate bunnies. And crafty bunnies. 🙂

    Next Wednesday will be my first W.I.P Wednesday! I am making myself a felt wallet with a seagull on it, though it’s looking more like a pigeon than a seagull. Oh well, them’s the breaks! 🙂

  2. I celebrate Easter as the Spring Equinox too. Not into all that Christian stuff, but it’s one of my favorite holidays because I heart spring!!! And who doesn’t love bunnies? I love those crafty little bunnies.

  3. Oh, you just gave me an idea! I think I’ll keep it to myself for now (not being selfish just, uh, let’s say “strategic”!) – I’ll share it later, I promise! 🙂

  4. I don’t usually celebrate easter but I still love all the spring holidays and especially the chocolate!

    The reversible bunnies are adorable! Great project.
