Calorie-free Chocolate Bunnies and Giveaway reminder.

 For the GIVEAWAY, go HERE

More adventures with fabric 
and a remarkably well-behaved inkjet printer
This time, I used the very popular Chocolat Lombart graphic
from the even more popular Graphics Fairy.
(Thank you, Karen!)

I printed the image onto white cotton lawn
using the freezer paper method.
(Is lawn called batiste in the USA? I never know) 
and sewed it into a pair of chic chocolate rabbits.

 Of course, it would have been more seasonal 
if I'd thought of this around Easter.
They need little tails and possibly real glass bead eyes
and maybe a ribbon or a button.
but for the moment, I'm just enjoying them 
as they are.
My free (and very easy) pattern
for these bunnies is available here.
I enlarged it a little for these bunnies,
so the image fitted nicely.
There will be one in the Bag o'Bunnies
that I'm offering in my Giveaway
along with vintage lace,
and some of this and that. 
A little doll. Chinese flowering tea.
Beads. Trinkets. Buttons.
Nutmeg. Cloves. Rosemary.
All kinds of interesting little things.
Go HERE to sign up.
Giveaway will be drawn at 
Midnight in Arkansas
(does that sound like a Redneck perfume?)
on  Friday, June 1st.


  1. Giggle calorie free just for me well sugar free i need they are just adorable plz enter me

    1. Thank you! Chocolate bunnies are not just for Easter. The Giveaway is in the link (I hope the links work, I didn't think to check them!) and the more the merrier. I'm going to join your FB, too.

  2. These little bunnies are too cute for words. I could just see them in a shabby chic Easter display : )

    1. Thank you so much! Next Easter I'm going to make a bushel of them. I just wish I'd thought of this earlier! Isn't that always the way?

  3. The bunnies are awesome! I still haven't made any from your pattern, I love them with the chocolate label :)


    1. Thank you, Victoria! I really, really wish I'd thought about this about twp months earlier, then I could have tucked one into my Easter baskets! I suppose I'm just super early?

  4. LOL....I was wondering when you might share with us what "lawn" was....I was curious after seeing the lovely mother's day pillow tuck you fashioned up. But I'm giggling even louder over the Midnight in Arkansas....I think you might be on to something there with a perfume line.... ;o) Your chocolat bunnies are simply darling! Love the label look! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

    1. But what would 'Midnight in Arkansas' smell like? Outside my door right now it smells of honeysuckle and lavender and rosemary. Lovely. But at the top of the road there's a gas fracking well and, to be frank, it smells fracking awful...

  5. you are so funny!
    Midnight in Arkansas....what does nighttime,crickets and fireflies smell like? least that would be Midnight in i remember from my childhood soooooo many years ago!!
    love,love love your bunnies!! and ,no..they don't have to be Easter....any time is perfect for any animal!!

    1. Fireflies, apparently, smell revolting but they should smell of sugar and violets. Just because that would be nice. And I'm glad you like my bunnies. Like you, I think bunnies are good any time.

  6. Rhissanna, when I first read the words chic chocolate rabbits I thought they were edible; I had to read over... LOL; Your bunnies are darling!

    1. I wish they were made of chocolate. I'm glad you like them, Sherry!

  7. Your chocolate bunnies are adorable! They are so in season with the arrival of summer and rabbits everywhere in my neighborhood


    1. Thank you, Carol! And yes, there do seem a lot of them in my garden this year, which is fine, but I won't be growing any lettuces...
