Free Brynwood Scissors Bunny Tutorial...

I had fun in the studio yesterday afternoon working on a gift as part of an art swap. I decided to make my new gift into a free tutorial in case any of you would like to make your own. My pattern is for a sweet little Scissors Bunny.

I recently purchased the pretty wool fabric from Anne at Bunny Hill Designs. (Here's the link to her available wool selections.) Its perfect for this project. I chose a Flickr album format again for the tutorial.

This bunny measures about 4 1/2" tall, and would be perfect to identify your scissors at classes, or just to keep track of them at home. It also works as a little pincushion. Just click here to go to the tutorial. Please email photos to me if you make one. I'd love to see what yours looks like!

EDITED THURSDAY MORNING: I read your comments this morning and see that I've omitted some explanation in my tutorial, as well as perhaps needing another element for my scissors bunny. (You can see what I mean in my reply in the comments.) I've already changed the name of this post title and my tutorial to Scissors Bunny. I promise you a "redux" with corrections by the weekend. Your comments really do make a difference! xoxo

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I am having fun looking at yours. I'll have to go look at your tutorial. For the life of me, I can't figure out where the scissors go.

Terri said...

Cute pattern...where do the scissors go? I didn't see where you left an opening...I fell a little dumb here...how does it hold the scissors.

Terri said...

And I couldn't figure our where to click on all and select original.

Oh well that's what I get for trying to compute when I'm still trying to wake up (grin)

You girls are good! Now, I'll go back to the tutorial. I just took a few more photos to show you how it's used. First, I'm going to rename it "Scissors Bunny". But, I'm going to add a pocket instead of little feet to my next one so you actually have a pocket to hold the scissors! Then it will really be a holder, as well as a fob/keeper.

Terri:
At the top of the photo you select on Flickr, there is a row of icons. One of them is "All Sizes". Click on that. Then select "Original" and that will print (or save as pdf) in the original size. Thanks for asking.

Apologies for my ommissions. I'll fix that asap. I'm having a procedure at the clinic today so I won't be sewing this afternoon, but I'll do this tomorrow and post revisions on the weekend. Thanks so much for your feedback. It means so much to me!

I'm confused about how to print this, too. I don't see the "All Sizes" icon.

Halp!

Hi Girlfriends:
I just went back to my Flickr tutorial to see why y'all aren't seeing the "All Sizes" icon. I'm always signed on at Flickr, so I signed out to see if that made a difference. It did. You'll need to sign into Flickr to get the option. If you really don't want to do that, email me through my link in the left sidebar and I'll email a pdf form of the pattern pieces. If you wait until Saturday, it will also have the pattern piece for the little pocket option I'll show on Saturday's post.
Sorry for the confusion.
xoxo
Donna
