'lil britches' for easter!

Easter is past, but the garments we put so much work and time into will last forever....well, at least the pictures will! If you are a newsletter subscriber, then you were the first to see these darling girls in their Brer Rabbit Designs 'lil britches. Their mom, Kelly was a recent winner in a giveaway on this blog when the new pattern was released.

Aren't they darling?!

Kelly wrote me a very sweet note saying:


I made matching Easter egg hunting outfits for my two daughters using your 'lil britches pattern that I won in the giveaway.  I love them!  The pattern in one of my new favorites.  Thanks so much!  I'm sending pictures, but their action shots during the egg hunt. There was no time to pose, they were on a mission! :)

Thank you Kelly, for sharing the pictures of 

your darling girls in their 'lil britches!

And thanks too for allowing me to share them!

This is the pattern for 'lil britches and it's one of Brer Rabbit's best selling ePatterns! You can purchase it HERE or from Fairytale Frocks and Lollipops! This is a very versatile pattern, with so many different ways to create something unique! This is the perfect pattern for Spring and Summer! I would love to share your pictures on my blog too! 

I hope you enjoyed this ePattern review! I will have another one to share with you soon - I'll give you a hint - it's a multi-view top to go with 'lil britches!

In closing, I want to share with you my grandsons. I made both their garments for Easter. Look for a new pattern soon from Brer Rabbit Designs, for the one-piece smocked short-all and the smocking design too!

Baby Bunny Feet

Sleeping babies are just tooo sweet! This is my precious grandson, who was born last October. I bought this little doll bed and made the baby bunny slippers just for this photograph! It couldn't have turned out cuter!
These sweet bunny slippers were made with white polar fleece 
on the outside and baby blue gingham on the inside. 
If you are a long-time follower of mine, you will remember my original bunny slippers design, which was featured, along with all my in-the-hoop baby booties in Sew Beautiful Magazine, several years ago.

The original design was created using plush felt.
The face is a vintage bunny face embroidered
in-the-hoop with the booties!
Recently, Brer Rabbit has been working on making new baby bootie designs and he's designed a new pair of bunny slippers with a touch of Shabby Chic!

I used ivory chenille on the outside and Lecien-
The floral fabric was purchased from Fairytale Frocks & Lollipops!

The back side of the slippers folds down
revealing the beauty of inside floral print!
This design, along with a few more will be available soon at Brer Rabbit Designs. I have to make another pair and take step-by-step pictures so that I can create a pdf-instruction file to go along with the embroidery file. I will try hard to get that accomplished A.S.A.P. I hope you like them - please leave a comment! Also, be sure to sign up for my weekly newsletter so that you can be the first to know when new designs are available for purchase!
