a happy hoppy dance

Way back in September of last year, I showed you a finished cross stitch bunny

a design by Fido Stitch Studios.  At the time of finishing, I simply slipped my aida under a frame for the photo without actually framing it properly. It always looks better to show something framed rather than with raw edges, but a wooden frame wasn’t quite what I had planned.

I can now show you the real finish . . .

Isn’t it amazing how a change of colour totally changes the design?  A little bit of patchwork, quilting and binding

To give a 9.5” square that looks like this . . . on the back, a different fabric and ribbons

Ribbons which are there for good reason . . .

And one little fabric tray.  I decided on ribbons to tie the corners because this means the tray can be flattened out for easier storage or be hand-washed if it gets dirty.  The base of the tray measures approximately 5” square – it’s destined to be decorative but useful . . . I’m thinking, on the unit by the front door for car keys & loose change, or something to that effect.

  1. This is adorable! It reminds me of our house rabbit, Blossom, though he (yes, long story there) was a black and white lop. The cross stitch is very realistic, it captures that inquisitive bunny look very nicely.
