When I did Jude's "Patchwork Beasts" class
(in 2010, but it's still in the "shop" :-) ... !)
she had several different methodes
with which she let us make a beast.
One, was a really simple pieced beast, out of a few small squares,
just like I made the rabbit.
Then you could "dress" it up
with all kinds of tiny scraps on the surrounding space,
which I did on the rabbit too.
Raw edge, or needle turned appliqué,
it just doesn't matter :
no rules here !
Stitches on the upside,
a bunny tail ..... and a raw edge flower pice.
The "grassy" leaves are double with tiny quilt stitches
and the other leaf was sewed and then turned
to the right side and closed.
Yes, it's less than 2 cm.
(only part of it will be joined to the background)
There are only a few bits of the background left to be seen :
embroidered bits of a white linen blouse.
I'm not sure yet, but I don't think
this is a sweet bunny
it's more like a fierce rabbit !
It's not exactly the Monty Python Killer Rabbit
it is not a "Flappie" either
I have to explane this :
"Flappie" is a hilarious song of a great Dutch comedian,
about what happened when the pet rabbit
ended up in the pot for the xmas dinner
(everybody in Holland knows the song)
