Love Those Pom Poms

 My Wascally Wabbits Table Mat
was a new project that got started and finished.

This rabbit project
is a "I've been sitting around for 2 years" and
"Easter Bunny's only seem appropriate during a certain period of time" project.

 So I knew I needed to get it out
and get it done.
The wool applique 
bunny pillow pattern
and is cute and simple.

My friend and I had each bought a kit from a local wool shop,
not because we didn't have enough wool ,
but because we simple adored the 
pink pom pom fringe that was included as an edge treatment.
(We have a thing for "dingle balls".)

When I use a primitive whip stitch
verses a buttonhole stitch,
 it saves lots of time and thread,
and for something as seasonal as this,
both of those reasons seem practical to me.

 I was thinking the pom poms might
be a challenge to sew on and look nice,
 but it was easy, especially using a zipper foot.

Now another unfinished project is done.
And I have to admit
there's something about
 those pink pom poms that
you just have to love.

Until Next Time-


  1. Oh, I agree. The pom-poms are the best!

  2. What a sweet project. The pom-poms are perfect. Hugs

  3. It's been so long since I've done any sewing with pom-poms. They were always such fun to add to projects. What a retro idea to add to this sweet bunny project. Totally cute!!

  4. Oh My I love it!!!
    the pom poms are adorable and I love the prim stitching too

  5. So cute--with or without the pom-poms. But I admit, I have an Easter banner I bought from DD#2s booth at a craft fair and I think it was the mini pastel pom-poms that drew me to it. : )

  6. That is just too sweet! LOVE those pom poms.:)

  7. So cute, both the rascally rabbit and the pink pom poms!

  8. What a sweet and absolutely darling pillow!
    Your wool applique' and stitch work is beautiful and yes.... I LOVE those pink pom poms!!
    The perfect finish to this awesome pillow.

  9. Very cute bunny!! I would not thought of adding pom poms, but they just the perfect finish for this pillow!

  10. This is just darling Kyle - and the edging is darling. :) I typically use a blanket stitch on all things wool but I've begun to love the look of the whip stitch and I'm planning to use it much more often. blessings, marlene

  11. So very sweet and more so with the pompom trim.

  12. Cute as can be----especially that pink ball trim!! You did a great job!

  13. That's a cute bunny pillow! Wishing you a Blessed Easter!

  14. I totally agree, the pink trim would have sold me in a minute. It is a great design too, and a lovely finish!
