Virginia, Virgin...






Inspired by a scan that I saw on Clever Nettle’s Flickr photostream from Fudge Magazine . I decided to try and make my own bunny bag inspired by the original! I drafted up the pattern myself using some other images I could track down online. I’m not terribly well versed in bag making (I’ve probably made about a dozen in my sewing career!), so sometimes these sorts of projects trip me up on the little steps. This one had a few hiccups along the way, but I persevered through and am very pleased with how it turned out!

One of the steps I had to redo was embroidering the face. The first incarnation was too creepy—I’m not sure it would have been safe to take the bag out in public as it was (it might scare little children). lol! So I redid it, and as my sister astutely observed, it’s now “creepy-cute”. rofl.

The fabric is a “utility” fabric I found in the fabric store near the tickings and burlap. I love the homespun texture! The lining is a length of vintage fabric I thrifted years ago, and the buttons are from my stash.

    I absolutely adore rabbits and this bag, so I hope you don’t mind if I eventually make something similar!

      Oh! Go right ahead; obviously I didn’t come up with the idea originally anyway, so the more, the merrier! ;)

    That’s pretty adorable. Cute is always good with a little bit of creepy.
