These bunnies are small enough that I'm able to use remnants or fabric pieces leftover from other projects.
Denim from torn jeans forms the back of each bunny. I hate throwing out jeans that are beyond wearing but still have perfectly good sections of denim left. I was happy to find a reuse for some of the fabric.
My previous bunnies were adorned with carrots made from scrap cloth which created a neat rustic effect but then I saw this little bunny in the clearance section. It sold me on the cord style carrots. The texture was visually appealing to me.
To make this look, I dyed white twine/heavy string (I don't really know what it is) with Harvest Orange acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium. After the twine was wrapped around, each carrot was given a final coat of paint to cover any gaps and dots of hot glue that were peaking out.
*** Before getting further into this post I should give another shoutout to Posed Perfection for inspiring this idea with her burlap wrapped carrots. Click Here to see her excellent tutorial. ***

adopted Lowe's slogan: Never Stop Improving. I asked myself, "How can I improve this project? What would make this better?" Twine wrapping the wire hanger helped create a more finished look. I also added button eyes.
