In an effort not to be wasteful, I've been looking for a project that I could use my scrap fabric in. I've wanted to incorporate the scraps as stuffing, however, I didn't really like using it with my fleece and faux fur creatures. The scrap fabric is much more dense than polyfill, and leaves fleece looking a bit lumpy. Not up to my light and fluffy cuddly stuffed animal goal. New direction? Burlap. Paint. Modpodge. A dash of cute. Ta-da! The burlap gives it that kind of natural rough look that works great with scrap fabrics.

For this particular burlap bunny, I went with safety eyes and felt accents. Next time I might make the features using the scrap fabric as well. I love to reuse/repurpose/recycle/reclaim/re-etc etc etc as much as possible so I think this style will give me the opportunity to do just that!

Thank you for checking out my post! Questions and comments are always welcome Smiley

This is a very cute and artsy bunny. I like what you're doing with your extra stash and your extra creativity. I would never have thought about painting a bunny, but now that I see it I really like it. Awesome job!

Art made science her bitch.

This is a really cute idea!  Very unique!  I love the use of colour and shapes.  It looks hand-sewn...great job!  Bravo!   Huh
