Bullion Stitched Bunny

This little boy's bubble, featured in Sew Beautiful magazine several years ago, will always be one of my favorites! Because of the classic style and simplicity of the pattern, #102 Pleated Bubble has remained one of my most popular patterns. The outfit is made from pale blue Imperial Broadcloth and the collar is trimmed with purchased white tatting which was stitched on by hand. The instructions for the bullion stitched bunny and the feather stitching are in the Heirloom Embroidery Book. The bunny is stitched with three strands of DMC floss and for the feather stitch I used one strand of floss. Always use a millner's needle for the bullion stitch for the best results. It is a fun stitch to master and is suitable for all types of garments.
