Saturday Special: Vintage Quilt Bunny

Believe it or not.... there is STILL SNOW on the ground here in Michigan (yes, STILL)...but that hasn't stopped me for thinking about and longing for Spring to arrive.  With Spring on the brain, I've got another season-inspired Primitive Art piece to share with you on this Saturday Special post here at The Kraft Journal sponsored by Kraft Outlet.

Artist: Babette Switzer
Mr. MacGregor will be on the look out for this little bunny!  He is made from an old cutter quilt found in the Texas Hill Country and stands 15" tall and measures 10" wide from the tips of his open stretched arms.
He is made from quilted soft fabric in shabby pink, dusty green, faded blue, jolly orange and natural muslin
embroideried with yellow and pink lazy daisy stitches and has two vintage white buttons for eyes.
He sports a stained muslin bow around his neck and a rusty safety pin holds a Prim Grungy tag hand stamped with "Spring Blessings" and adorned with a rusty bottle cap embellieshed with a vintage graphic of bunny and chicks. The back of this piece is muslin. He would make a wonderful addition to any Easter Basket and you can purchase him at this link right here or through My Spare Time Designs.
Don't forget, there is still time to get in our papercraft challenge this week. The link is at the top right of our sidebar.
