Digi with a difference

The theme at CRAFT Challenge this week is 'Easter' and I really enjoyed making my project:

Last month I bought some little cloth giftbags at my local craft store's Valentine's Day clearance sale. They are perfect for Easter, and I knew what I wanted to make for this challenge straight away. I used a newly released image from our generous sponsor, Whimsie Doodles, to make a template. The image is called 'Simple Bunny'.   I cut it out from felt, stitched the edges, ears and face, and adhered it to the bag. Add some grass, and some ribbon, and voila!

It's an easy theme this week, and of course you can create any kind of Easter project you like!  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Whimsie Doodles online store - and the images are so sweet!! Our sponsor is also offering a special discount for CRAFT Challenge fans - you can find the code with this week's challenge post.

Here's a little detail shot of the bunny:


I'm submitting my project at:
# Creative Inspirations ~ Challenge 57 ~ Easter
# Allsorts ~ Week 98 ~ Anything but a square

And thank you to Rebecca for inviting me to link up in her spring blog hop, "A New Season - A New Skill" - this project was something new to me.  I have never used a digi image as a template before (but now I've done it once, I'll do it again with suitable images!) and I've never embellished a little fabric bag like this either.  I have another two bags in my stash and I'll definitely be trying it again with a different theme.
