Easter Bunny banner

Hi all! When I look out my window and see so much snow still on the ground , it's hard to believe that today is the first day of spring and that Easter is just a couple of weeks away. I'm so ready for some sunshine and warm days!!!  While I'm waiting , I have a couple of projects to share with you today- Easter themed ,of course!

This banner was made using my Cricut and Doodlecharms cartridge. I wanted to try cutting fabric with my Cricut for so long now but I was afraid it would somehow damage my machine or that it it wouldn't cut properly. Not so!!! However, I did discover that a fabric adhesive like Heat'n'Bond applied to the fabric allows for a smoother cut than fusible web does. I now have an old mat dedicated to fabric cutting. These bunnies were cut at 7.5" and the banner shapees were made with the Artiste cartridge at 9".   I love sewing but nothing too complicated and this was so easy!!

I also found this carrot wreath idea on Pinterest and onca again, I love this quick and easy sewing project!

These carrots are 17" high .... some giant bunny would love these for sure!! LOL  Check out my Pin Board " Easter/Spring" for a link to the site where I for the tutorial on how to make these.
I'm entering both of these projects over at Shopping Our Stash for their Easter / Spring challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
