The Giving Bunny Project

Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but Mr P-L has been doing computery things and now I have finally been given some time on the computer! I was going share some more bunting loveliness that Pickle-Lily and I have been working on, but then yesterday we were out shopping and I picked up a copy of 'Made in Felt'

Please take me home
In it Pickle-Lily found an article about the Giving Bunny Project . It is all about making very cute little rabbits out of felt and then leaving them somewhere to be found! There is a google map showing where they have been found, and so of course we had a look! There seem to be very few in the UK, so yesterday afternoon P and I made our first two bunnies - Angelina and Arthur. (For some reason Blogger isn't letting me edit my pictures at the moment, so the layout is a little random!!). As you  can see there is also a cute little label to print off to put with your bunny, for when he is found. Arthur has been put in position, so we will wait to see what happens next! You could always join in! I'm going to share this on Handmade Monday in the hope of recruiting some more bunnies!

This is a great idea, I'd love to find one but the next best thing would be to make one and let someone else find it :)

What a great idea! It's like a felt version of geo-caching.

That's a fantastic idea to make and hide bunnies! Not heard of it before though.

Got to agree with everyone else - those bunnies are lovely and what a great idea to leave them for someone to find.

I love this project! It would be fun to join. Where do we get the pattern and label printable?
