It's not the worlds best picture, but I don't have it hanging yet. I was making so much progress on this and then I hit a wall. I feel like I hit the crafting wall way too often. This has been sitting unfinished for over a week just because I needed to make two more pink flowers and didn't feel like making them. I was also hoping that our crib would have arrived by now and that I could hang it up in the baby's room. I guess that will have to wait. Well, now it is done for the most part. It did not turn out how I planed. It has become way more girly and a lot more busy. I was going to make some carrots and leaves for the top part, but my carrots were not coming out right and the leaves were just lame. Oh well, so now it's just flowers. Here are the pictures I took while making it.I cut out lots of bunnies out of some felt and put cute little tails on them and sewed some faces on them. =)Pinned the ribbon on and hand sewed around them. (I stink at machine sewing)Stuffed some stuffing in them to make them "alive."Then I tied them on the hoop I got, but later I realized that I should have just hot glued them on as it would have made them a lot less bumpy.Added ribbon all around to cover my messy tying job. I would have left it like this, but the tying made it so ugly that I had to come up with some way to cover them.So I cut out lots of flowers out of felt. It was a great sit outside in the sun activity.Put a button in the center. It looked so good on my pregnant belly. =)Made one to hide all the center strings (was going to be a carrot, but that didn't work as well as I thought)Sewed all the flowers on and I was done!
