Spring Burlap Table Runner with Appliqué Bunnies

Table Runner: A Cute Rabbit Burlap MIY

I love spring and I love bunnies and I love this Sizzix Rabbit Die! It is my most favorite Sizzix die of ALL TIME!! It is totally feels like spring here in Southern California! I love it! I’m ready to get all my spring home decor out and I needed a new table runner in my dining room so I came up with this “shabby” inspired bunny runner. I used a ready-made burlap runner that I purchased at the craft store, Heat n Bond Ultra, lace trim, and some yardage. The fabrics are from the line Flora & Fauna by Blend Fabrics.

Let’s get started!

Begin by cutting the Heat n Bond Ultra into rectangles the size of the Rabbit Die. I choose to use Heat n Bond Ultra because I didn’t want to sew around each rabbit. Burlap is a little stretchy and wiggly and I thought the sewing would cause some funky puckering. The Ultra doesn’t require any sewing!

Iron it to the wrong size of the fabrics to be die cut.Table Runner: A Cute Rabbit Burlap MIY

Run the fabrics through the Sizzix Fabi. Make sure to cut half the rabbits going one way and half the rabbits going the other way. I cut 12 rabbits. The number will vary depending on the length of the runner.

Aren’t they the cutest! I could have a million of these bunnies!!!!

Table Runner: A Cute Rabbit Burlap MIY

Measure the length of your table runner, mine is 116″. You will need the lace to be double the length of the table runner.

Sew the lace to each long edge of the table runner.

Choose three fabrics for the ruffles. Cut (2) 5″ x WOF of each of the ruffle fabrics.

Sew a rolled hem on the two short sides of each of the 6 ruffle pieces.

Then sew a rolled hem on one long edge of the ruffle pieces. Press.

Sew a gathering stitch along the length of the ruffle strip, 1/4″ along the raw edge. Gather each ruffle.

The first ruffle we sew till be the end ruffle. Align the ruffle and the end of the runner right sides together. Adjust the ruffle to fit the width of the runner. Pin into place. Sew along the gathering stitches. Do this to both ends of the runner.

Press the ruffle back and top stitch along the top of the ruffle to keep it laying flat.

For the second ruffle pin it wrong side to the runner (above).

Align the ruffle so it overlaps about 1″ (pictured above).

For the third ruffle, aligh right sides together (like we did with the first ruffle). Pin it about 2.5″ apart. Make sure when the ruffle is folded back it covers the raw edge. Sew along the gathering seam.

Fold ruffle back, press, and top stitch.

Wonderland {by Riley Blake Designs } Easter Dress

wonderland blog hop

Thanks for hopping over here as part of the Riley Blake Designs Wonderland Blog Hop….or should I say Bunny Hop Hoppity Hop!  I am so in love with this fabric line “Wonderland” by my friend, Melissa Mortenson.


Melissa is the cutest ever!  She writes amazing patterns and books, designs fabric, and writes a sewing & craft blog called The Polka Dot Chair.  I am grateful to be a part of this blog hop!Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 9.08.47 AM

When I saw this fabric I knew I wanted to sew Sally an Easter dress.  I am so happy that Sally is still thrilled at clothes I make for her.  Please don’t grow up!!!  This is my favorite girl dress style: little puffy sleeve, collar, sash, pleats and a long skirt.  I was actually surprised at this Simplicity Pattern #1211 .  It followed traditional dress construction and was fairly simple to put together.  I am hoping to make 5 more!!!  Look at all the fun variations you can make!



It’s always a little scary cutting into yards of fabric!!


But with a little help from my friend Jennifer and her cute bunnies, it was a snap!


I think this is the definition of sweet 🙂

Sally was thrilled to hear she would get to model the dress with real bunnies!

The bunnies look all soft and cuddly, but you can’t see all the scratch marks on Sally’s arms!!

I love the pleats in the skirt portion of the dress rather than gathers, it gives it such a classic, clean look.  And of course who doesn’t love a but accent strip on the bottom of the skirt!

Did I mention I love bunnies?wonderland dress 1

This fabric is so amazing and soft.  I would totally wear a skirt out of the bunny print.  Too bad I don’t have any left over 🙁

Sizzix Bunny Kitchen Towel

Today, on the Sizzix blog, I am sharing one of my favorite little projects to sew: Kitchen Towels!  Hop on over there for the full tutorial!

sizzix bunny towel 5 Kitchens usually don’t have a lot of wall space or places to hang quilts or cute crafty projects.  I love hanging home made towels on my oven, it gives the kitchen that cozy feeling!  Theses sweet towels also make the perfect gift!  Who wouldn’t want one of these!  I choose some of my favorite Riley Blake Fabric Prints from some of my favorite designers.  sizzix bunny towel 10

I am also using my most favorite Sizzix Bunny Die (I’m sure I’ve said that many times!!)  I love using my Sizzix Fabi to cut these bunnies!  It’s so fast and easy!


And you can die cut several at one time!


I could cut these bunnies out all day long!  They are so much fun and oh so cute when they are leaping all over!


I used my ruffling foot to sew the ruffle – this is also a time saver!


I used Heat n Bond Lite to fuse the bunny.  I also used my new Oliso Pro iron.  It’s a dream!!!


I love how sweet they are with the soft colors!



I want to keep them all for myself!!     I love that these colors are perfect Pyrex colors!  I might just have a slight Pyrex obsession!!sizzix bunny towel 3

Wonderland Bunny Pillow

wonderland bunny pillow tutorial

I’m pretty sure every spring I make a new bunny pillow!  Throw pillows are such a fun way to get your fabric fix!  I can’t get enough of these adorable bunny faces!  This new fabric line designed by Melissa Mortensen of the Polka Dot Chair is called Wonderland from Riley Blake Designs.


I kept the pillow design simple so the bunnies would be the focal point!  If you have about 30 minutes, you can make one too!


1/2 yard Bunny Main Print

1/8 yard accent strip

1/4 yard second accent strip

20″ x 20″ piece of fabric for the back

20″ pillow form

accent trim, optional

cotton batting

22″ zipper


First get out your fabrics and have your cat roll all over them 🙂

bunny pillow measurements

Next, cut the fabrics according to the above measurements.  Using 1/4″ seams, sew the pieces together and press seams in one direction.


Baste the pillow top to a piece of batting and quilt straight lines every 3/4″.  After it is quilted, trim the pillow front so it measures 20″x20″.  The reason we made it 21″ to begin with is because it can shrink a little when quilting.  This way we get an exact 20″ square.  From this point you can finish the pillow how ever you want.  I basted some neutral color trim onto the pillow front.


I always finish my pillows by inserting a zipper in the back of the pillow.  You can choose the invisible zipper method (here)  or the exposed yet covered up zipper method (here).  I added a piece of lace to cover the zipper.  I love the pink hounds-tooth on the back.


Guess who also loves this pillow?
