Decision time

i feel like i'm on a roll after my success with my two bags made in one night - i still can't get over it so now i want to finish my ultimate project. one which started nearly 4 years ago and has very much haunted me.
this bunny alphabet is for my daughter. i thought of it when she was born, she turns 4 next month. the letters were the easy bit but i'm just not sure what color fabric to have as the background. i don't want to start then have a change of mind, unstitch and start over again. originally i thought of the pink gingham but i don't want it to be too pink so i have tried the yellow aswell but that just doesn't do it for me. what do you think? at this rate she will be getting it for her 21st.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!


  1. Maybe a really crisp white background so that the bunnies pop?

  2. The gingham looks really nice, from the photo it doesn't look too pink. It looks more cohesive with the filler colour inbetween the bunnies.

    If you want to tone down the pink, perhaps a light green border?

  3. I think you should go for a striped or polka dot fabric that has all those colours in it. Just not sure if the bunnies would fade away in it all though. It looks great! Such a lovely idea!

  4. This is going to be amazing! Have you thought of white squares with coloured sashing... maybe something that brings out the colours of the bunnys?
