Bunny garland

Finally! My bunny garland is finished and hanging on the tulip quilt. I love them. They really came out nicely when I aged them in coffee. I cut part of a wide, wired ribbon and twisted it while sewing the bunnies on in intervals.
Sorry this photo is blurred. Our camera is not taking very nice indoors shots and especially closeups. Outdoors it is the best of cameras but indoors..... I placed this photo here so you can see the aging and whiskers. I got this effect by using YLI quilt thread which is nice and stiff. I double knotted the thread and simply pulled it carefully through the fabric right under the bunny's nose. I added two or three threads to get the whiskers effect which I think worked rather well.

Heidi,
Is there no end to your talent?
I adore the tulip quilt and those bunnies - what can I say?
They are way too cute and I was tickled to see them taking a coffee bath :)
Hugs,
Margaret

Hello Heidi, Your bunny garland is so delightful, when I first saw the bunnies on the baking grill I thought you had baked them and they were cooling. You are so imaginative, the tulip quilt is beautiful to. Thank you for sharing. Hazel xxx
