Time to Meet Somebunny!

I've been creating something I haven't done in a VERY. LONG. TIME. 
I gave you a glimpse the other day of the different fabrics I was using.
They're all done now.

Meet Lilly Mae and Benny Bunny!
They're all dressed up and ready for some Spring planting!
I made these out of cotton muslin and then washed them with some 'Fawn' colored acrylic paint. 
I also used Fabric Stiffener on their ears. The whiskers are upholstery thread; the nose is painted on and the eyes are 6mm black beads.
I used an old pair of jeans to make his dungarees. 
I love how they turned out!
I actually made an extra boy for a Swap that I'm participating. Now I need to decide whether
or not I want to sell them! 
Yep, not sure about that part which happens to be the reason I'm also not sure about making dolls! You see,
I have a problem with letting them go!! I'm okay with the wood that I paint but these little 'softees' just touch a special place in my heart!
Make sure you pop over to the PAFA Team blog HERE to see if your one of the 33 winners! WHAT A GIVEAWAY that turned out to be!!!
Speaking of Giveaways, I'm working on a new one so, as always,
Stay Tuned!!!
