A Bufkins Bunny Bonnet & Basket

I'm back at sewing, yea!  I thought I'd start with
 something I can use a bigger needle with, easier
to grasp.  So, I dug out my hat mold & stitched up
a Bufkin bunny bonnet.

Leaving room for the ears.

Since the Bufkin girl bunnies favorite flower is the
 rose, I chose a velvet wild rose.  Also, a few tiny blue
 velvet forget-me-nots, velvet leaves, some vintage
 millinery radishes and a dark green silk ribbon.

I cut the large leaves into smaller ones.

Added a length of ribbon to each side.

Doesn't every bunny want a radish hat?

This bunny will also need a little basket
 for foraging in the woods.
Vintage carrots, some moss &
 teeny mushrooms too.
Along the way, she'll spread some
Heirloom Wild Rose seeds.
Time to start stitching a Bufkin bunny!
My niece Emily & her husband Nick have
a new baby boy, Emmett James, 9 lbs 2 oz.
Welcome to the world!
 Miss Ava is very excited to have a baby brother.
I get my beautiful velvet flowers from By
Gone Days, based in Australia.  I have their
link listed under my favorite places.
