I'll be out for a while Recouping From Surgery

I'll be out for a while recouping from Surgery.  I just can't sit up for long periods of time.

In the meanwhile, enjoy a to do project for Easter.  make your own felt peeps.  Go HERE to get the PDF for the pattern and HERE for the directions.  If you want them more like a stuffed dimentional project, just do the following:

Cut 2 strips, each about 3/4" wide from one narrow (9") end of the felt.  Cut 2 pieces from the pattern & mark the center bottom.  Match the seam, right sides together, to the point between the bunny's ears & stitch to secure.  Align the strip with the bunny edge & stitch half way around ending at the center bottom using a very narrow seam---no more than 1/8".  Return to the beginning & stitch the other half from the ear to the center bottom. This method keeps the seams even at the top & bottom. Join the 2 strips where they meet & trim the excess.  Turn the seam to the inside  Pin the back piece to the gusset strip, aligning the edges & matching the center bottom.  Stitch the seam leaving an opening to stuff it. The back seam will remain exposed.  Stuff lightly & stitch the opening.
