AKA - The Bunny House Lady

Somehow I've become known as the Bunny house Lady.

I make one miniature house, which leads to another and another and another.  Well, you get the picture.

I finished up these two today.

Each has it's own family of bunnies and a complete set of furniture.

The pattern I use (modified a little) is McCall's pattern 8346 from 1982.

They make the sweetest gifts for little ones at Easter.
I can't make enough of them. 
 Trouble is, they are super labor intensive and take so much time...

and I want to make a quilt.  wink**

These little guys have to say goodbye to each other.  
Bunny BFFs forever!!

Here are houses from the past.

All of them are being loved by little hands, except the Halloween one.  (I'm trying to keep at least one in case I have little hands around here someday)

Here is where I blogged my first one.

It has black cats instead of bunnies.

And my finishes today make 7 so far. 
 I'm sure there will be more in the future (I have lots more orders), but I need to catch up on all the BOMs and quilt alongs.

Oh, and there is the last challenge for Season 7 of Project Quilting this week.

They are all just adorable! I would keep the Halloween one as well.

Sew cute! Before you said they were labor intensive I thought - wow those look like they take some time to make! I'm sure everyone that's gotten one was ecstatic & that makes it all worth it! said...

Those are so cute. Love the bunny butts. Definitely keep one for yourself because someday you will be saying dang I need some toys around here.

I tracked that pattern down the first time I saw your house and I've yet to sew it. How can that be, especially because I just love it! Your bunny houses are so cute!

OMGosh.....those are soooo cute. I can see why they are labor intensive.

Your little houses are beautiful, especially the Halloween one. I'd definitely keep that one.

"Labor intensive" is a huge understatement! I stumbled into this pattern for $1 at a consignment store. I think someone bought it, took one look at the details, and put it at the bottom of a pile of things to not get done. I just finished a pair for my grand daughters (3, 1). I hope you gave them to VERY GOOD friends because these are truly a labor of love (and no one could afford to buy one at a price that would make you anything short of slave labor). But they are a really neat pattern!
