When You Can't Find It, Make It! (Bunny Pillow)

I don't know about you, 
but sometimes
make that all the time,
I struggle to find what I'm looking for.

No matter what it is that I'm wishing
to buy for this room or that room,
it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Take for instance, my desire to have
a Spring pillow for my sitting room sofa.
Yes, as simple as a Spring pillow.

I couldn't find a single one in the area!

How could that be, you ask?
I wish I knew the answer.  
It's a conspiracy, I tell you.


I had to take matters into my own hands.

I bought a ready made pillow cover in Hobby Lobby
in a nice neutral color.

Then I found a bunny template online
and traced him onto cream colored fleece.


 I pinned my cutout to the front of the pillow
and then I hand stitched the bunny to the front of it.
(I'm no sewing goddess, I just took my time
and did the best I could.)


Here he is!

Like I said, sometimes you just have to take 
matters into your own hands.  
He may not be perfect,
but he's cute & just what I was looking for.

How CUTE is that! Now you know if I saw this pillow in a store, I would have to have it! Very smart to make it yourself! And it looks so easy to do. I know what you mean about the conspiracy... I keep wondering why they don't make pretty rugs. Why does everything have to be so bla bla bla.. same ole, same ole...
