I've been doing some art abandonment lately, so when I came across The Giving Bunny Project at Urban Threads I had to participate!  They offer a free pattern for cute little bunnies that you make and leave in a public place for a stranger to find and take home.  There's also a really nice printable tag the leave with the bunny that explains the project and gives the web address so the finder can report their find if they want to.  I made a bunch of bunnies!  The directions have you embroider the nose and eyes, but I made mine out of felt and sewed them on; it's faster that way for me.  Today I left two of them at the post office, and I plan to have a couple of them in my car or in my purse when I go out so I'm ready to drop one somewhere if I find a good spot.

Hi Leslie - I printed out the pattern and hope to make some also. Glad to see you used color instead of all white.

I will try to make a few before all the swaps begin this weekend.

I got the pattern too. I love that you did the nose and eyes yourself. My family and I are going on Vacation in January. I want to leave a bunch that say Made in Canada.

Ooooooooh - I work across the street from a children's hospital - wonder how it would go if I made these and abandoned near there with a tag about giving it to a sick kid to cheer them up?

"Made in Canada"--Cute!!  I want to point out that I actually made my own tail too, because I didn't have any pompoms.  I blogged about it if you want to see how I did it:  http://lesliesartandsew.blogspot.com/2012/12/release-bunnies.html

Ooooooooh - I work across the street from a children's hospital - wonder how it would go if I made these and abandoned near there with a tag about giving it to a sick kid to cheer them up?  

That's a great idea!  Or even venture into the lobby of the hospital and leave some there, where family members would find them to give to their child.

I'm excited that you are doing this too!

Is anyone else having trouble opening the pattern? I tried at home and at work, and neither computer would open it. Sad

Even though it is a free pattern, you have to "purchase" it by putting it in your cart and checking out...then you should be able to download it or have it sent to your email.

Yes, I did that, but for the life of me I cannot open the "zip" file that was sent to me...

I didn't have any trouble opening the one for hand embroidery, but after reading this I went and got the machine embroidery one, and I couldn't open it.  Hmmm.  I don't know enough about computer stuff to know how to help you, sorry!

I didn't have any troubles opening mine and have made quite a few. Maybe it has to do with the file you choose. I got PES for my brother machine, try writing urban threads.

I thought I had the hand embroidery one the first time, but I guess not. I "ordered" again and this time I got it to open. Woohoo, bring on the bunnies!

OK, anyone remember when Easter is this year?  I am taking most of a week off in March for the heck of it, and I think that maybe I will get some fabric and make a bunch of these and leave them around the kids hospital and a local park/school before Easter.

Fantastic idea, Onyxnox!  Easter is March 31st, so the timing is perfect.

This is an interesting concept, kind of like that "Where's George" thing with the dollar bill. It's always interesting to find out where something ends up after being in your hands. I will have to try this when I get time!

I saw this last night and made my first bunny (I've been calling him Una). I got some tags printed out so I can start placing bunnies around town! These little guys are so adorable I really hope to make someone's day!

I love Urban threads. I have a batch of bunnies cut out but that is as far as I have got. too many projects going on and too many get moved up and down on the list depending on what's going on.
