Happy Easter

Bunny Playmates from 'Mother' Magazine
April 1940
Grey skies and drizzle here for Easter and although the garden is doing well, it's not conducive to a flowery photograph, so I found these Easter bunnies instead. 

The caption reads :

"Simple applique makes gay coats for Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny - and the quickest stitches will send them capering on Baby's bath screen, play rug or cushion.

The rabbits' coats and the flowers growing in their playing fiield are cut from gay coloured felts, neatly hemmed on the design.  If you prefer you can make them from colourful scraps from your piece bag and applique them with matching buttonhole stitching."

Oh sweet! And it holds up well these many years later.
