DIY Easter Bunny Embroidery Plushie Kit - Mollie Makes (Issue 90)

DIY Easter Bunny Embroidery Plushie Kiriki Kit - Mollie Makes Issue 90

A new month means a wonderful new Mollie Makes magazine lands on my door mat, and March's issue is jam packed full of inspiration to spring creatively into spring! Whilst I'm always eager to paw through the pages of how-to's, printed papers and array of crafts, one of my favourite things about the Mollie Makes magazine is the free make kit that comes along with it.

We may have all been plunged into a deep freeze in the UK this week, but March's Mollie Makes kit was definitely making me focus ahead on Easter. Inside this issue was a delightful little bunny plushie stitch kit, designed by Kiriki Press. Another of my favourite things about the magazine is how many new creatives you discover, and I'm so happy to have been shown Michelle at Kiriki Press' crafts!

Specialising in doll embroidery kits, her designs are utterly gorgeous. Each intricately designed and brimming full of character, her kits look truly inspiring - my top three favourites have to be the Llama, the Raccoon and then there's a tie for third between the Hedgehog and the Beaver (I mean look at his little jacket!)

Having been in bed ill this week, I had plenty of free time on my hands to crack open the kit and get stitching. I'm familiar with cross-stitching but relatively new to embroidery, so it was fun to learn some new sewing techniques.

I'm so pleased with the way my little bunny turned out, I'd already set up a little easter display in my house, so he fitted in perfectly! He's definitely not perfect, but I love him flaws and all. I actually really noticed my sewing start to improve by the end of the kit too, which is always a bonus, and it's really made me want to look for some more embroidery projects to have a go at. I'll have to finish off reading this month's magazine for some further inspo!

Are you starting to think about Easter just yet? Or is it still a little bit too soon?

Until next time..
