Tilda Bumblebee Blog Hop :: A Little Bunny in a Tilda Dress

Have you seen the new Bumblebee range from Tilda? It’s a really lovely range with a fresh Spring like feel to them. As the name suggest there are even bumblebees on some of the prints!

The team at Sew and So asked me to take part in the blog hop and kindly sent me some fabric to have a look at.

As I am hoping for Spring to get a wriggle on I thought I would design a Bunny in a Dress!

I drafted a simple bunny pattern and made her from some chambray/denim that I had in the stash (I wish I knew where it came from as it was good to work with). I then decided to line her ears in the Pink Flower Nest as surely every bunny girl would love floral ears, don’t you think?

She of course needed a little dress as I didn’t want a bear bunny on my website! I decided to go for the Teal version of Rosa Mollis as it has little bees on it, in amongst the flowers.

Cute and small sewing of course requires the use of the small rotary cutter. A smaller rotary cutting blade really does make it a lot easier to cut around the little curves.

 

If you’re making a cute little dress and need to trim the seam allowances, then ordinary pinking shears will just not do the job….scalloped edges every time!

So, what do you think, does she look ok in her little Tilda dress?

Why, yes, I did fussy cut so I she got a little bee on her shoulder. Thank you for noticing!

I was only kidding myself, Spring is not nearly here so I knitted her a little scarf too!

3.25mm needles and ggh Soft Kid in stocking stitch if you are interested. Lots and lots of rows.

      Thank you Martina! I love those little ears too. They’re not on totally straight, but that makes her unique doesn’t it?
