In honor of Easter, I thought I'd share this little bunny with you. This is one of my designs that I had the honor of having included in the Accord 2008 Quilling Calendar. (It will be tomorrow's design - March 25.) The designs in this calendar were all submitted by members of the North American Quilling Guild.
This Easter bunny first made his appearance on an Easter Parade card, done a few years ago. Since then, both the bunny and the chick have been very popular, and I have been asked to make them into pins several times.
Here are the instructions if you'd like to make the Easter bunny:
Eye: Make a blue (2 inches, 5.1 cm) tight roll. Wrap a (1 inch, 2.5 cm) white strip around the blue tight roll.
Nose: Make a pink (1 inch, 2.5 cm) triangle.
Place the eye and the pink triangle nose in position (see photo).
Face: Make six (3 inches, 7.6 cm) white marquis and use to form the face. Wrap the face with (2 ½ inches, 6.4 cm) white strip.
Ears: Make a (3 inches, 7.6 cm) pink teardrop. Take a (5inches, 12.7 cm) white strip and attach to the pink teardrop and form a larger teardrop (see photo). To form the right ear, make a (6 inches, 15.2 cm) white teardrop. Attach ears (see photo).
Shirt: Using seven or eight (3 inches, 7.6 cm) blue marquis shapes, fill in shirt. Wrap shirt with (3 inches, 7.6 cm) blue strip. Attach shirt to head.
Arms: Make two (4 inches, 10.2 cm) white elongated teardrops – attach left arm on top of shirt.
Legs: Make two (3 inches, 7.6 cm) white marquis shapes, and attach to the bottom of the shirt.
Feet: Make two (4 inches, 10.2 cm) white teardrops, and attach to the legs.
Tail: Fringe a strip (2 ½ inches, 6.4 cm) white and form into a grape roll, then attach to the back of the shirt (see photo).
Egg: Make (3 inches, 7.6 cm) pink oval, attach to the right arm.
It looks like a long list, but it really isn't a hard pattern! Give it a try!
