Finally the calendar says that Spring has arrived. The last day of March we had a surprised spring snow storm in CT.  Although the Northeast had an extreme winter this year, I am so looking forward to warmer weather.

Spring means to me: long walks on the beach, planting my garden, as well as my granddaughters baseball games and their dance recitals. I'll need to schedule time for sewing during the week to keep my weekends free for these activities.

This year Easter will fall during April. I've created a fun project for you to sew and give to those who are special in your life. Please encourage others to download this project. Remember all projects are designed by me and may be used for your personal use only. Note: You may notice that in different file formats that the colors look a bit odd. This happens when I save the embroidery in a different format than my software.

Directions for machine applique can be found on the newsletter for March. Add a personalized message or name if giving this as a gift item.

This month's project is a free Bunny applique which can be sewn using your embroidery sewing machine. Download the zipped file and save in the download folder. Unzip the file and open up the digitized file  in the  format needed for your embroidery software. Add lettering if desired and transfer to your sewing machine. For a printable read out, open up the PDF File Machine Embroidery Applique  (in the left column). I hope you enjoy this month's project. Add the cute bunny to an apron, gift bag, dinner napkins, or if you prefer use the edit feature in your embroidery software and sew the embroidery  project available in the newsletter for March.

For the Bunny Tail:  Before the machine sews the bunny's puff, change the bobbin thread to a different color. This will help you to recognize the bobbin threads for clipping. After the tail has been sewn clip only the bobbin threads of the tail. To create the fuzzy tail, gently pull on the top threads  on the right side of the tail with tweezers.

I sewed the bunny embroidery onto a cute little gift bag that I've designed. The finished bag measures 5 1/2" wide by 4" tall. This little bag is perfect to give to a child. 

     With your pattern purchase this month I will send you the small bag pattern for free.

If you'd like to purchase just the gift bag pattern in a downloaded format the cost is $4.00 The pattern will be sent to you digitally within 24 to 48 hours. Osnaberg fabric in beige only is also available too. A quarter yard will make 2 bags.
