The Embroidery Thread… For this design, I used DMC Stranded thread in the colors given in the materials list above – I stitched with 2 strands throughout.

Start by Stitching the Plant Pot…

Follow these steps in order to fill in the pot. I used brick stitch as the filler however if preferred you could switch this to long and short stitch.

Stitching the Rabbit…

#612 – Backstitch the outline of the rabbit

Fill in the 2 front paws with long and short stitch – fill in each paw separate to the body (up to the outline of the paw, not over it).

Next, with long and short stitch – fill in the rabbit’s neck and chest up to the head.

Long and short stitch the head, leaving the eyes. Follow the photo’s as a guide to how the shapes should look when stitched.

Now for the ears…

Brick stitch the outer ear leaving the inner ear shape like so…

#3688 (Pink) – Satin stitch vertically to fill in the inner ears.

For the Eyes and Nose… #310 (black) – with tiny little straight stitches fill in the eyes and then stitch the nose shape.

Now your gorgeous little bun is peeking out of the flower pot ready for some flowers

This design is great for using up lots of your leftover thread as it would look gorgeous in all sorts of color choices.

Plus it fits perfectly in a round hoop or a frame depending on your preferred choice. This design is perfect for a child’s nursery or an Easter Decoration to treasure year after year.
