Today I have a little project for you since Easter will be here soon! I was sorting through a pile of old books I knew nobody here would want because they were written in German. I made myself a little template out of cardboard and traced the bunnies onto some pages (usually I cut through 3 pages at once). Since I don’t like to watch TV “empty handed” this was a nice little project to do on the side. Once you have a few ready,
dust off your sewing machine and tread it with some colored or white tread. Set the stitch to -4- (you want a larger stitch) and sew them together, always stop after each paper bunny, lift the foot and pull a few inches before you add the next paper bunny (see picture).
After you reached the desired length, leave an extra few inches and tie a large pearl, a small piece of driftwood or even a large button at the very bottom for some weight. This way the bunnies hang down pretty straight and if there is a bit of a draft in the house they don’t fly all over the place.
If you don’t have a sewing machine and want the kids involved, you can also -sandwich- two bunnies at the time between a piece of twine. That was fun and even a bit “sturdier”.
Like my little bunnies…
